Toilet water: It’s all about concentration
Toilet water, or Eau de Toilette – Perhaps the most popular representative of numerous and diverse perfume products produced by the most famous representatives of the Perfumery Industry. The only difference between the toilet water from the spirits consists in concentration of fragrant substances, which provide a perfume product intensive and persistent fragrance – in toilet water The content of aromatic compounds is slightly smaller. However, a small concentration of fragrant substances in the composition of the toilet water can be called more likely than a disadvantage – if spirits, with their intense and enough heavy smell, are not suitable for each case, the toilet water can be used at any time.
Concentration and resistance
Fragrance resistance, the duration of its "sound" after applying spirits or toilet water to the skin is determined by and large, only the concentration of fragrant substances – that is, the volume of aromatic compounds in the perfumery product. In the case of toilet water, the concentration of fragrant substances can range from five to fifteen percent, but most often in the composition of the toilet water – about ten percent of aromatic compounds. For comparison, in "real" perfumes, the content of fragrant substances is up to 40% (most often – 20%). And in perfumey water, the nearest "relative" of spirits – from 10 to 20% (most often – 15%) of aromatic compounds.
The low concentration of fragrant substances in the composition of the toilet water makes it a universal perfume product: it is possible to use toilet water and before leaving for work, and in front of any solemn event – in general, throughout the day.
The benefits of the toilet water have long appreciated the largest perfume brands – today many perfume innovations are produced precisely at the concentration of toilet water in the first place. In addition, on the concentration of toilet water, as a rule, flanks are produced – new versions of the fragrances issued once. For example, the original Christian Dior Poison was a few decades ago released, of course, at the concentration of spirits, but new variations of the cult fragrance, much lighter and modern, are already produced in the concentration of toilet water.
How to use toilet water
Given the small concentration of fragrant substances in the composition of any toilet water, it seems that it is impossible to overdo it with your favorite aroma. Of course, this opinion is erroneous – how intense, deep and strong will be the aroma of the toilet water, in no degree depends on the number of perfumery product applied to the skin. Moreover, to use toilet water is needed in moderate quantities, spraying on the skin from a short distance (10-15 centimeters). Even a small amount of aromatic compounds in the toilet water will still provide the aroma of the necessary durability and power – even if not as large as in the case of spirits.
If it seems to you that the fragrance weakens over time, it can be updated during the day – albeit with caution: it is not necessary to be deceived by a small concentration of toilet water – most often when it seems to you that the fragrance has lost its strength, in fact the smell remained, And you, by virtue of the habit, you simply do not notice.
How to choose toilet water
The choice of "His", which is ideal for the aroma, it depends, of course, only from personal preferences – but in the case of toilet water, it is necessary to take into account several subtleties associated, again, with a concentration of perfumery product. Since the aroma of toilet water is initially less intense than the flavor of the spirits, if you are attracted to thick, "heavy" flavors, peculiar, first of all, for perfume, it is better to stay on the scents of eastern. Sweet and heavy, oriental flavors always have a bright "character" and powerful sound that does not spoil the toilet water.
But if you rank yourself for fans of the flavors of fresh and lungs, the toilet water will generally become the perfect option – especially if you choose citrus or aquatic (pet) odors.
