WHATS THE OLDEST BOTTLE OF PERFUME IN YORU FRIDGE?

I was gifted an original bottle of Coty Cologne by a lovely new Debutante (Lauren)… Another Debutante Miss Bec was at the table when this happened and we all started talking about the difference between Parfum, Toilette & Cologne..  Bec being Bec ran right home and researched it all and we also wanted to share this with you as it is very interesting and a girl must know the difference….

Eau de parfum is 10-20% “aromatic compounds” (essential oils and concentrated scent) – almost always 15% in modern perfumes

Eau de Toilette is 5-15% aromatic compounds (but almost always 10% in modern perfumes)

Eau de Cologne is only 2-5% and diluted into mainly ethanol (80-90%).

In modern times the term cologne refers not just to the concentration of perfume oils but to the aromatic compounds used in the blend as well.  Cologne is made almost exclusively from citrus-based scents (in particular the “head notes”) but eau de parfum and eau de toilette are not restricted to any particular compounds and can employ floral, citrus, etc.  The term “cologne” to refer to a masculine scent is an American affectation.

The very first cologne was launched in 1709 in Cologne, France by Johann Maria Farina and at the time a single vial cost half a civil servant’s annual wage.  It was called Eau de Cologne (water of Cologne) and you can still smell and buy it today from Farina’s descendants who keep the blend secret to this day. Eau de Cologne was often copied, most successfully by another brand that you can still smell and buy today – 4711.

The person who blends perfume is simply known as a perfumer or in french Nez, which literally translates to “nose”.

Heat, oxygen and light are the three elements that cause a perfume to begin to break down.  Perfumes are best stored at 3-7C in the dark.  Yup, your fridge.

And finally, here are some of the oldest/most popular vintage perfumes still available on the market today;

*  Chanel No.5 – not Chanel’s 5th perfume but named for the lady’s obsession with the number five and marking it as her “definitive” scent.  (1921)

*  Joy by Jean Patou (1930)

*  Blue Grass by Elizabeth Arden (1934)

*  L’air du Temps by Nina Ricci (1948)

*  Youth Dew by Estee Lauder (1953)

Incidentally Coty are still the world’s largest fragrance company.
