What’s the difference between an aftershave, eau de toilette and eau de parfum for men?
Do you know the difference between aftershave and an eau de toilette? A lot of people think they are interchangeable, but there is actually a stark difference. Aftershaves contain up to four per cent perfume oil which makes it perfect for post- shaving - pairing well with a moisturiser or balm too! Not only this, its low concentration means that the scent will last around three hours.
Now if you choose an eau de toilette instead – beware as these have higher concentrations (up to eight percent) so applying directly on freshly shaved skin can cause redness. Despite this setback, your chosen fragrance does tend to stay longer at six-eight hours making them ideal for day time use when spending more extended periods outdoors in busy spaces such as work or shopping hubs.
If you want a scent that lingers from day to night, an eau de parfum is the perfect choice. Experience maximum fragrance with eight to 15 per cent perfume oil - more than any other on the shelves. For something even bolder, look out for simple parfums which are rarer but exude luxurious allure and distinction due to their higher prices.
