It’s a great relief to wake up to a pleasant temperature and maybe a mist on the lawn. This is the first sign of the changing seasons. You need to prepare to change your clothes and perfume wardrobes every season.
This is the perfect time to adjust your grooming routine to prepare for colder weather. So put aside those aquatic-infused, bursts-of-freshness colognes, and be ready for deeper, more robust fragrance notes.
It’s possible to choose a perfume over a cologne, but be careful not to go too far. It is not a good idea to overwhelm someone approaching from 60 feet away. Men’s perfume should be subtle and not overpowering.
Although perfume and cologne can be made in the same manner, here are some guidelines to help you understand the differences between them.
- Parfums contain between 15-30% of aroma oil solution.
- Perfume is composed of 95% alcohol, 5-10% water.
- Cologne can contain up to 3-5% aroma oil solution.
- Cologne contains 70% alcohol and 30% water.
Higher concentrations of aroma extracts in perfume make it more intense and last longer on the skin. So be careful about how much perfume you use.
