Tip: Understanding Splash vs. Extrait de Parfum (EDP)

When it comes to fragrance products, there are a variety to choose from, including Eau de Toilette (EDT), Eau de Cologne (EDC), Extrait de Parfum (EDP), etc.... These classifications mainly differ in the concentration of fragrance oils they contain, which directly impacts how long the scent lingers.

Traditionally, splashes were known for their lower concentration, lasting a couple of hours. On the other hand, Extract de Parfum (EDP) boasts a higher concentration, lasting all day and up to 24 hours.

While many fragrance enthusiasts desire the convenience of a splash that sustains its scent throughout the day, there are compelling reasons why EDP remains the preferred choice for fragrance longevity. Fragrance oil is expensive, and EDP's format minimizes waste substantially.

EDP typically comes with an atomizer, a spraying mechanism designed to enhance the application process by mitigating waste and ensuring efficient distribution. This method allows for a precise, minimal amount of highly concentrated fragrance to be applied, covering only the desired areas without unnecessary excess. Additionally, atomizers help maintain the fragrance's integrity by limiting its exposure to air with each use, preserving the valuable essence.

In contrast, using a splash involves applying the fragrance directly to your hands and then to your face, leading to inadvertent wastage as the scent on your hands evaporates unused.

Both products are great, it's a matter of the right tool for the job.
