Classification by concentration rate


There are perfumes for all budgets, prices varying according to the reputation of the product, but also according to the concentration rate of the perfume itself in the excipient (alcohol type ethanol, etc.):

  • "Solid water" (EdS) (launched in 1994) is valued at about 1%. EdS (registered trademark or ® )
  • The "fresh waters", on aqueous excipient, contain only a maximum of 4% concentrate.
  • The " eaux de Cologne " (EdC) (launched in 1709) are dosed from 4% to 6%. Original Eau de Cologne (registered trademark or ® )
  • "Eau de toilette" (EdT) contains 7 to 12% concentrate.
  • The much more expensive "eaux de parfum" (EdP) reach a concentration rate of 12 to 20%.
  • "Perfumes" or "extracts". From 20%, we enter the field of extracts. The concentration rate can reach 40% in the case of particularly prestigious perfumes. However, the extract is not a pure blend of raw materials (raw formula used by the perfumer, also called concentrated or concrete) since it also contains alcohol in the same way as eau de toilette or perfume.
  • The "perfume powder" incorporates in its formulation 31% of perfume essences in a compacted cosmetic talc, without the presence of alcohol.
  • " Essential oils ": this term applies to pure aromatic and volatile products extracted from plants only; it is therefore not perfume as such. In absolute terms, the term essential oil refers to the chemical components not diluted in the excipient; in practice, the term is often confused, as the essential oil is almost never pure.
