Not sure what cologne your man would like? Let’s help you out with the list of best selling perfumes for men 2019!
A man who hits an online mall or brick and mortar cologne shop probably have two things in mind; i. he wants one with a nice fragrance and… ii. he’s looking for one that can smell long enough. Perfume connoisseurs are aware of the French vocabularies associated with colognes and how long they can last when worn. Let’s learn them.
Parfum – Parfum is made up of 25-30% fragrance that is dissolved in alcohol and oils and can last for at least 24 hours.
Eau de Parfum – Very popular version of perfume containing about 20% fragrances. This type will stick to your skin for approximately 8 hours when worn.
Eau de Toilette (EDT) – The eau de toilette often contains 5-15% fragrance that has been dissolved in alcohol. Once worn, it can last a couple of hours before fading off the skin.
Eau de Cologne – Eau de cologne is quite cheap because it is made of just a meager 2-5% of dissolved fragrance that wears off after a few hours.
Eau Fraiche – Eau Fraiche is just scented water. Its fragrance composition is just 3%.
Although your choice of perfume solely depends on what you want, an ‘Eau de Parfum’ can keep you smelling sweet all through work hours. However, for a couple hours of hanging out with your buddies, an EDT would get the job done.
Important Note: Throughout this article, we will be using the words; top/initial notes, middle/heart notes, and base/anchor notes frequently. The top notes are the first aroma you perceive when you wear the perfume. After a couple of hours, the initial notes fade off to reveal the middle/heart notes. These will also fade off after some time to reveal the base/anchor notes which are mostly of tobacco, musk, vetiver, or sandalwood for men.
