Difference between Eau de Perfume and Oil Perfume

The history of Oil Perfumes dates back to ancient Egypt when these fine scented oils were presented to royalty as gifts. In modern times, however, when the word "perfume" is said, most people think of department store fragrances (Eau de Toilette, Eau de Perfume etc.), which consist mainly of the concentrated oil, water and alcohol solution. Nevertheless, as more and more people are finding out about them, oil perfumes are experiencing great popularity. This is why in keeping to our usual yet rare fashion of never compromising pure quality matched with affordability, we went back to Egypt to bring you these absolutely delightful oil perfumes. Now smell this and discover THE secret. Thank August Wish later!

Here are some interesting facts about oil perfumes:

1. Strength of smell - Oil Perfumes are highly concentrated and up to ten times more concentrated than department store perfumes (Eau de Toilette, Eau de Perfume etc.)  Oil perfumes are generally the most concentrated form of perfume you can buy. This quality allows oil perfumes to last longer than their Eau de Perfume counterparts. Apart from having the highest fragrance strength, they can also be used directly on skin.

2. Alcohol - Eau de Perfumes have alcohol in them, which creates different smell effects. Most body oils use carrier oils like jojoba or grape seed oil in place of alcohol. In some fragrances, the smell can change as the alcohol evaporates different scent notes through time. With oil perfumes, the scent is more constant because they contain 0% alcohol and in an oil base rather than an alcohol base. They do no evaporate unlike Eau de perfumes, giving them a long lasting effect.

3. Price - A noticeable difference between Eau de perfumes and oil perfumes is price. Eau de Perfumes have a very high mark-up and great profit margins, which is perhaps why many celebrities have embarked on the trend of creating their own perfumes and colognes, mostly synthetics. Oil perfume can even be sold more expensively than the Eau de perfumes or cheaper as the case may be, depending on how they are positioned in the market, but the difference is always clear. The same reason Eau de perfumes are generally more expensive than Eau de Toilette, because Eau de perfumes contain lesser alcohol and water and more perfume oil than Eau de Toilette.

Our oil perfumes come directly from Egypt and we simply can’t wait for you to try them out. Don’t blame us if you get addicted though, but we promise you this is the good kind of addiction. Now they are typical oil-based, so it is not advisable to apply them directly on clothing. It is better to apply them directly on skin, preferably on your pulse points — your wrists, inside your elbows, the nape of your neck, even in the crease behind your knees, for a long lasting and irresistible effect.
