The Momentary Pleasure of Spraying Eau de Cologne

Fashion & Cosmetics
Perfumery is an art where various types of perfumes are produced by mixing several essential oils in balanced combinations, to get that perfect fragrance. Its origin can be traced back in the past to the 16th century Paris and further back to the ancient Mesopotamian civilization. Chemist today produce numerous fragrances in different safe and skin-friendly methods. This has helped in the wide and popular use of the perfumes among the people from different age groups. But how many of you actually know the difference between perfumes and eau de cologne?

What is Eau de Cologne?

Every brand offers different type of fragrances under the four categories - Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum and Perfume. The difference between all these groups is that of the concentration of the essential oils used in the process of creating. Eau de Cologne has a concentration of about 3 - 8% of essential oils along with a 70 - 80% of alcohol and water. Though it lasts for a less amount of time, eaux de cologne smells just the same as the perfume or eau de perfume of the same note. People prefer carrying a cologne wherever they go, because it requires reapplication from time to time. But, the high concentration of water gives quite a refreshing feel every time you apply it especially in hot and humid weather.

More About Eau de Cologne

Cologne was initially introduced as more of a freshener than perfume. People needed a light refreshing fragrance to put on after getting cleaned and cologne just fitted into the requirement. You might wish to feel refreshed the whole day and expect your cologne to help you in the process, but that is not how it works. You can hardly tell the difference of using it, if you are already feeling fresh. The trick was quite simple, to create a mysterious moment and let it fade away before the scent can really sink in. A mist of eau de cologne would bring a blast of different visions and would vanish within a few moments, thereby breaking the monotony of the day. The makers of this fragrance started adding more natural essence like citrus fruits, herbs and flowers to create a more realistic feeling for the wearer.

The citrus blends of essential oils with alcohol or water is actually the important secret behind creating a refreshing eau de cologne fragrance. This trick is further mastered by various brands to create an image in your mind based on the smell such as the smell of fresh springs, odour of exotic flowers, smell of forest clearing near mountains and many others.

Almost every brand offers perfumes in different concentrations and the popularity of those as per the usage varies from place to place. But still, the most commonly used eau de cologne brands that you can see today are Davidoff, Royal Mirage, Tommy Hilfiger, Jovan Musk, Hugo Boss, Demeter Fragrance, Coty and Revlon Charlie. You can visit the many online shopping websites providing these fragrances in a wide range of notes. So the next time you buy a hanky eau de cologne perfume, look for the notes used in it. That way you know what kind of scent to expect. Carry it in your bag and smell amazing any time you want.
