    Smile Do male fragrances ever come in parfum strength like women's fragrances?

    Hello,I was just wondering if male fragrances are ever sold in perfume strength for male fragrances? I also would like to know why men's fragrances are generally sold in the EDT formulation compared to women's,which is stronger at the EDP strength. I do own one bottle of men's fragrance that is EDP strength for a men's fragrance called coach,which was just released to the market recently,but there are very few out there that are EDP strength for male fragrances and I would really like to know why that is and if anyone could tell me of any male fragrances you know of that are EDP strength because it would last loner on the skin so men would not have to reaply as often. I just don't understand why women's fragrances are a stronger strength than men's. Please basenotes community please explain this to me and let me know of men's fragrances that are EDP strength because it would be great if I didn't have to reaply throughout the day.
    Thank's,

    Bond 9 makes a perfume strength (mine lasts until the next morning; it can be disgustingly strong), as does clive christian.

    Terre d'Hermès comes in pure parfum. Guerlain's Héritage and Habit Rouge at least come in edp.

    in my experience concentrations don't seem to be about strength. more often I find them different.
    many edts last longer than some edps.

    I think it's all about skin types, also one should consider that women use a lot more fragrance than men by putting it in all sorts of places (ears, neck, breasts, hair, knees erm... feet?).

    It´s a zeitgeist phenomenon and got econominal reasons (watered -down = use more, buy more).
    It was different in the history of mankind and the use of perfumes!
    Times change, people change; heretofore you can try Opium Homme EDP, Dior Homme Intense e.g. and some so called powerhouse frags out of the 80´s.

    All Creeds (even masculine) are EDPs, most of niche market is EDP, and despite the fact they market most of their releases as unisex, some are 100% masculine.
    Terre D'Hermes comes in the eau de perfume concentration as well.

    Hello,do you have any clue as to why male fragrances tend to me of EDT strength and women's tend to be EDP strength? I really would like to what the real reason is?

    The "heavy" use of fragrances or the use of perfume for men in general in our western society is still a bit proscribed! Sleazy! Disreputable!

    I once read that it was to do with the reaction EDPs and parfums have on shaved skin - obviously the higher percentage of essential oils in an EDP and parfum could potentially wreak havoc with even day-old shaved skin.

    Makes some sense in some ways, but I suspect that was just a theory rather than fact.

    Yes, I looked for it and you are right, I thought pure perfume concentration is too much for... anything.

    I believe everything from Tom Ford's Private Collection are perfume strength. As far as perfumes marketed for men, there are very few, but tons of uni perfumes that don't compromise their masculinity. Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille and Tuscan Leather are 2 great examples.

    Unfortunately for many of us on a budget, perfumes are a bit pricey and more of a luxury. There are also plenty of EDT's and colognes with perfume quality and strength.

    There are loads in EDP strength (see many niche, some higher end frags, artisinal scents, etc), but only a scarce few marketing solely to men in pure parfum strength, Terre d'Hermes being one of them. You can have Montale add more oil to their very strong EDPs, which I would wager pushes them far into parfum strength territory.

    (btw, Tom Ford Private and Bond are EDP, not quite parfum strength)

    Agree about concentrations and longevity , parfum tends to be richer and denser but not necessarily have better longevity

    Dior Farenheit Absolute and Dior Homme Intense are both EDP arent they

    No, you are mistaken. All of his are EdP strength, not perfume/parfum strength.

    Well, it's all about what I call the "Impact Zone", men usually want their fragrance to be smelled by people in their immediate vicinity (1meter) while women allow themselves a bigger Impact Zone and what I call "Scent Clouds". Anyway, I was always taught that a gentleman should smell good but not -radiate- with fragrance.

    As mentioned, Terre d'Hermes and Habit Rouge can be bought as perfume. (The HR extrait was limited edition.)

    The Habit Rouge eau de parfum was limited edition in North America as Beau Cavalier. Warm and riche with the addition of agarwood (oud.)

    Rance makes some great frags. I like Le Vainqueur. (Rance, sadly, has a "faux" history; read Luca Turin's blog.)

    Finally, D'Orsay now offers Le Dandy in the eau de parfum strength. (Le Dandy EDT is one of my summer favourites.)

    Different box and different forumulation. It no longer has oakmoss. (D'Orsay is another company with "faux" history; read "The Perfume Handbook" and "Perfume Presentations.")

    I don't think men apply differently than women, or use less than women. Men splash or spray on the neck, chest, arms...on the body hair. Some spray under trouser legs.

    Villoresi Uomo is also available in a Profumo edition.

    It is not an 'amped up version', so much as a less 'bright' take on the original with a bit more depth and duration - very nice.

    Clive Christian No1 Pure Perfume for men is definitely perfume strength.

    Are you ought of your mind? Nobody in there right mind would pay that for any perfume or cologne. That one bottle cost's close to the cost of my entire collection of cologne's. It is $865.00. That is only 1.7 ounces. If you were to get enough to equall a normal 3.4 ounce bottle it would cost a total of $1730 plus shipping cost's. If you know of any pure purfume fragrance for men that actually is not extremely expensive like clive christian number 1 let me know. I would never pay this for a purfume or cologne that cost's this amount. I would not care if it was the best smelling fragrance in the world. This is for people that money is no object to them,which I do not have the money to burn $865.00 on a 1.7 ounce bottle of purfume. This is oughtrageous to pay this amount.

    I think one reason you see few male parfums is that we tend to spray all over rather than use the more effete dab here/dab there technique. I also think, present company perhaps excluded, most men would balk at the price of a parfum. Speaking of which, which frag are you talking about that's $865 for 1.7oz?

    CC is outrageously priced, but extrait concentrations are comparatively cheap on the men's side of the counter. Just look at Caron's Impact Pour un Homme and Hermès' Terre d'Hermès; they're only slightly more expensive than the edts. Compare that to most any extrait marketed towards women...

    As an example, Chanel charges around 150 euros for 15 ml, while you can get 75 ml of TdH for around 80 euros I think.

    I think the Habit Rouge parfum went for $365 USD a bottle in the 50 ml size. Still cheaper than women's perfume.
