A cologne is a light perfume with a wonderfully refreshing scent and is actually always useful. For example, the product is ideal to use as a finish after your grooming routine or as a refresher after a long day. A cologne is a must to have on hand!
The term eau de cologne is generally used when referring to a light fragrance, with a lower concentration of fragrance ingredients than a eau de toilette or a eau de parfum. The name comes from the city of Cologne, home to the oldest perfume factory in the world.
The product often has a refreshing scent and you use it mainly to refresh yourself. Citrus notes, such as lime or orange, for example, are the basis of a cologne. These are complemented by other ingredients such as rosemary or sandalwood, for example.
The difference between Eau de Cologne and Eau de parfum
You often hear about a eau de parfum or cologne, but what is really the difference between the two? A cologne consists of several ingredients, such as alcohol, water and fragrance ingredients. The more intense a fragrance smells, the more fragrance ingredients it contains. This actually explains the difference. A cologne contains about 3-5% fragrance ingredients, a eau de toilette about 5-10% fragrance ingredients and a eau de parfum about 10-20% fragrance ingredients.
So, are you looking for a fragrance to refresh yourself with? Then go for a Cologne. Still looking for a fragrance that smells intense and long? Then go for a perfume.
