FAQ

These are some of our most asked questions:

1) What is the difference between the product formats, such as Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette and and Oil Essence?

All are created from a base oil essence, but all vary in the amount of base oil essence used in the formulation.
Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette are both alcohol based formats that make them sprayable.  EdP is a stronger version and has more base oil essence than the lighter EdT.
Our oil essences do not have the alcohol content of the EdP/ EdT format and many are 100% base oil and some are diluted for better easy of wear.

2) What product format lasts the best?

For most skin types, oil essences tend to last the longest as they are more concentrated and do not have the alcohol of EdP/EdT formats.  However, we have found that for dry skin, Eau de Parfum spray lasts the longest.
The best way to wear a fragrance for best sillage (diffusion into the air) and longevity is always to layer with a lotion of the same of similar scent and then apply your fragrance on top of it.  Even using an unscented lotion will create the best environment for fragrance on the skin.

3) Where is the best place to wear a fragrance?

There are many answers to this… and it very much depends on your taste and style.  I find that the best places to apply a fragrance are these: on the back of the neck as this is an intimate place to be sniffed and your hair may absorb some of the scent, but it is not behind the ears as this is a very sensitive place to apply fragrance; in the crook of the elbow (not the wrists) as it is a lovely pulse point but you might wash the scent off easily of it is on the wrists; and lastly just over the heart.  This is your biggest pulse point and one of the warmest parts of your body to release the scent.  It is also under your own nose so you are more likely to notice if you have applied to much.
