A spritz of fragrance makes us feel refreshed and appealing.
But not all fragrances create the same magic!
The world of fragrances can be beautiful and luxurious but can also be very confusing. If you are new to the love affair with good smells, chances are you would have a lot of questions about the different products available in the market. One such thing that confuses a lot of people is the difference between body mists, perfumes, and deodorants.
If you want to know what makes these three products different and when should you use them, keep reading!
What are Deodorants?
Deodorants are personal care products that are used topically. They are most commonly applied to specific areas on the body such as the underarms and the chest. The major characteristic of deodorants is that they are used to minimize the odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration. They aim to eliminate and neutralize natural body odor. This makes it a product that is used commonly when working out, playing sports, etc. Deodorants are intended to apply directly on the skin and are generally formulated into a solid, liquid, or aerosol base.
What are Body Mists?
Body mists are spritzers that offer a pleasant all-over scent without being overpowering. Body mists usually lack odor-fighting capabilities and act more like a light, layered fragrance. In comparison to perfume, body mists are softer, lighter, and less concentrated.
Body mists are usually so light that they last for only up to 4 hours and are often applied to the body multiple times a day to refresh the fragrance. Their shorter life span also means that they are often available in larger sizes and at a reasonable price. This gives you even more reason to spritz them multiple times a day. They are a worthy investment for a subtle boost of fragrance throughout the day.
What are Perfumes?
A perfume is a mixture of high-quality fragrant essential oils, spices, and aroma compound in a liquid form to emit a pleasant odor. Perfumes are a blend of base liquid, which can be alcohol-based or oil-based, and perfume essence. Depending on the perfume essence, the fragrance may last for up to 12 hours or more.
The majority of perfumes are meant to be sprayed on clothes. They have a higher concentration of fragranced ingredients and are meant to make you smell great for long hours. This makes them the best perfume for men who lead busy lifestyles and are usually on-the-go. Depending upon their level of concentration, they can be further classified into,
- Parfum or Extrait: 20% to 30% concentration of fragrance
- Eau de parfum or parfum de toilet: 15% to 20% concentration of fragrance
- Eau de toilette: 5% to 15% concentration of fragrance
- Eau de cologne: 2% to 4 % concentration of fragrance
- Eau Fraiche: 1% to 2% concentration of fragrance
The kind of perfume one uses can be indicative of their lifestyle. Most people love to indulge in luxurious perfumes as they find it favors their lifestyle.
While these three products are quite different from each other, they aim to achieve the same goal – to make you smell good!
