    Default EDP vs. Parfum extrait vs. Oil

    Can anyone tell me what would be the olfactory differences between the three?

    Since no one has replied, I will at least make a couple comments: Topnotes don't jump out in oil fragrances like they do in alcohol based fragrances. Oils last longer though. I personally haven't liked most of the oil-based fragrances I've tried, but that's just me.

    Edp and parfum are basically fragrance oils diluted in alcohol (parfum is the most concentrated). Lower fragrance concentrations are usually spritzier with more lively topnotes, while stronger often are deeper, calmer and may last longer.

    Oils often have excellent longevity, stay very close to the skin and won't have the classic progression from top to mid to base notes.
