Smelling great is one prime need for the summers and wearing a good perfume is essential to help you stay and smell fresh. However, selecting the perfect perfume can be quite a task since the market is flooded with options. Perfumes are of five types and before buying one, you need to know which one to go for.
The first type is Extrait De Parfum which is the most expensive of all types and the smell lasts longer than you can imagine. Other types are Eau De Parfum, Eau De Toilette, Eau De Cologne and Eau Fraiche. Eau De Parfum is the most common variety of perfumes out there; this one has the least concentration of fragrance. Eau De Toilette is a lot more used and preferred in daily life since this is easily available, and is also not very expensive. The reason people pick this up is also because it is fresher, lighter and it focuses more on the top notes. You will find that Eau De Cologne perfumes are usually packed in bigger bottles as compared to the other varieties. This type is not very long lasting and one has to always carry it in the bag for reuse. Eau Fraiche is mostly water with very low level of fragrance mixed in it. This scent is affordable but will not last at all. Since now you would know which type you would prefer, we tell you some of the best perfumes currently available in the market that will make summer feel like a breeze and help you in your perfume shopping.
