Cologne/Perfume types reflect the concentration of aromatic compounds in a solvent, which in fine cologne is usually a mixture of water and ethanol or ethanol. Various sources differ greatly in the definitions of cologne kinds. The intensity and longevity of a cologne is dependent on the concentration, intensity and longevity of the aromatic compounds (natural essential oils / cologne oils) used.
Cologne oils are frequently diluted with a solvent, though this really isn’t consistently the situation, and its own requirement is questioned. The most typical solvent for cologne oil dilution is a combination of water and ethanol or ethanol like pisco, cognac, brandy, rakia and rectified strips. Cologne oil can be diluted by way of inert-smelling oils like fractionated coconut oil, or liquid waxes for example jojoba oil.
The traditional application of pure perfume (parfum characteristic) in Western cultures is at pulse points, including behind the ears, the nape of the neck, as well as the insides of wrists, elbows and knees, so the beat point will warm the cologne and release scent always.
The modern cologne industry supports the custom so it is released in different intensities contingent on the period of the day of layering scent. Softly scented goods like body lotion, shower gel, and bath oil are recommended for the morning; eau de toilette is proposed for the day; and cologne placed on the pulse points for evening.
