There are so many different types of perfumesavailable today. Eau De Parfum, Eau Fraiche… What do they mean? Well the names represent the level of fragrance content and alcohol that is found in the perfume. This is what mainly influences the price of a bottle of perfume. Of course a lovely bottle of Eau De parfum will be really nice to have however if you are a college student who has to pay for college tuition and handle expenses all by yourself, that bottle might cost you a lot. So what perfumes can you buy?
Well do not worry, I am going to tell you.
Eau De Cologne
These are trusty pals of every college student. They are generally sold in large bottles and is relatively cheap when compared to buying its sophisticated and posh aunt Eau De Parfum. The reason it is cheaper is simple. It has a much less content of fragrance, roughly about 2-4% therefore it does not last beyond two hours however because it is cheap and the bottle is bigger you can easily spray some more if you think the scent is gone.However do note that it has a much higher concentration of alcohol so if you have sensitive skin Eau De Cologne is definitely going to cause irritation however do not lose hope. There is another type perfume you can still use; Eau Fraiche.
This perfume is similar to Eau De Cologne. It generally does not last beyond two hours and is cheap so you can easily spray some more without batting an eye lash. It does have a slightly lesser content of fragrance,as the level is generally between 1-3% however this would not be a significant problem as the fragrance is quite cheap. However the best thing about this perfume is that across all the perfumes available in the perfume industry, Eau Fraiche has the least amount of alcohol. The perfume is mostly made up of fragrance and water therefore sensitive skin will not be irritated.
The thing you have to understand is that the price of perfumes, whether they belong to the types mentioned above or belong to the higher priced ones such as Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette and Parfum is influenced heavily by the manufacturer. If they are fragrance manufacturers associated with luxury brands then the price of the perfume would be very high while if they are not, then the price would be lower.
So if you want to buy a good perfume that would not put a dent on your wallet make sure to purchase products from companies that are not associated with luxury products or purchase one of the above two types of perfumes.
