What is Eau de Parfum?
An Eau de Parfum is often compared to an Eau de Cologne and an Eau de Toilette, but contains the highest concentration of perfume. In an Eau de Parfum you will find about 15% to 20% perfume, while in an Eau de Cologne there is only a maximum of 5% perfume. An Eau de Parfum will therefore linger much longer than an Eau de Cologne or Eau de Toilette.
Due to its strength, you only have to apply an Eau de Parfum once a day. You apply this to your wrists and/or behind your ears. Due to the high percentage of perfume present in an Eau de Parfum, it is logically also more expensive than other variants.
