    Default Perfume vs EdT vs EdP vs Cologne

    Sorry if this an old topic but getting more and more into the community I am trying to educate myself on fragrances. From my understanding perfume has the most oils, then EdP, then EdT. What about just "cologne" ? Also are most of the stuff you guys are talking about mostly EdT? Where can I see a list of pure "perfumes" ? The fragrance database on basenotes doesnt let you specify! Thanks!!

    Don't forget that most US scents labelled "Cologne" are the same strength as European EDTs. European Eau de Cologne (EDC) is weaker and sometimes different slightly from the same EDT. Aftershave splash is sometimes at the same strength as EDC.

    Most stuff spoken about here is indeed about EDT or the equivalent strength US Cologne. There are very much fewer EDP versions of male scents, so when they're being referred to, people state it.

    There are a lot more women's scents labelled EDP. But don't think that means their scents are stronger or last longer than male ones. I've bought heaps of them in the past for women, and I know that they often don't last anywhere near as long as men's EDTs (probably has something to do with woody EDTs lasting longer than floral EDPs).

    I haven't seen any pure Perfume version of a men's scent - which may explain why it's not specified in the Directory.

    Habit Rouge was released in parfum concentration a while ago (in a limited edition). There are some examples of parfum marketed towards men, but it's still pretty rare...

    Thumbs up Re: Perfume vs EdT vs EdP vs Cologne

    The first one was CARON IMPACT DE POUR UN HOMME ( extrai of EdT Pour un Homme )
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Clinique Happy For Men although listed as an edt is actually a cologne strength frag.

    Wow Fahrenheit Parfum ! Interesting. I only knew of a Fahrenheit Absolute coming soon.

    I think all the bond no 9 fragrances are EdP as well
