Hi, I'm Stephanie from and I'm going to let you know how to understand the difference between perfume and cologne. Now unlike what many people think, perfume is not for women and cologne is not for men. It's actually difference in the concentration of the perfume of the fragrance. Perfume is usually concentrated somewhere fifteen and thirty percent aromatics and cologne is usually somewhere around three to eight. Now in reality the manufacturer of the perfume is the one who decides what concentration of the aromatics that they're going to put in their fragrances. So it can vary a little bit, but for the most part it, a perfume, extrait, parfume parfum or even eau de parfum are the highest concentrations. With beneath that eau de parfum, eau de toilettes, eau de cologne. And so these are just levels of concentration.
