    Default EDT or EDP

    Why do you prefer EDP over EDT,is it only because of the longevity and projection factor?????

    I generally prefer EDP, even though my collection is made up mostly of EDT, since EDP is not easy to obtain for all fragrances. But apart from longevity, the EDP version of almost any given EDT fragrance seems (in my opinion) a bit more complex, as the higher concentration has more time, more intensity and more additional notes to develop.

    It's not so as a rule to me, I like some scents in EDT concentration. As EDTs have somewhat better projection and sillage than EDPs.
    It depends on the scent....
    My all time favorite:

    Dior Fahrenheit

    Yes and yes, Nevertheless, I still purchase EDTs.

    Mostly an EDP version will be different in composition to the EDT. Generally I would prefer EDP because the tend to stay closer to the skin and last longer. But really it depends on the scent.

    Depends on what's available, and also on the scent itself. In some cases, the EDT and EDP are very different fragrances. Chanel No 5 is one example, as is Guerlain Insolence.

    It really does depend on the fragrance... because an Eau de Parfum will sit very close to the skin sometimes but will stay longer than an Eau de Toilette, whereas the latter will project more but finish earlier. Having said that, I usually like Eau de Parfum's because they can generally (but not always) be a little richer or deeper in smell than an Eau de Toilette. On the other hand they are usually much more linear, but sometimes I like the richer smell.

    Fully agree, although in this case the two frags are different compositions based on the same notes with the EDT being more airy and the EDP more earthy.
