What's the difference between Parfum, Eau De Parfum, Eau De Toilette, Eau De Cologne and Aftershave?

Parfum is the purest form of a scent and is the extract of the fragrance. It is less diluted than the other forms of fragrance and is often smooth and round in texture.

Eau De Parfum (EDP) is one of the most popular forms of fragrance. When wearing it is the second strongest and is the longest lasting of all the fragrance forms. It contains between 7% and 14% fragrance oils and perfume extracts. 

Eau De Toilette (EDT) is becoming increasingly popular as a means of wearing a fragrance. It is not as concentrated as Parfum or Eau De Parfum and contains 1%  to 3 % of fragrance oils and perfume extracts. After approximately three hours of wear, around 80% of an Eau De Toilette will have evaporated.

Aftershave is a traditional way for men to wear a fragrance. As they are applied to the skin, Aftershaves contain a lot less alcohol which limits their ability to last and therefore they weaken quickly. Rather than being used as a fragrance, Aftershaves should be used as a rejuvenating tonic.

Eau De Cologne (EDC) is designed as an invigorating spray and lasts the least amount of time; only around a couple of hours. It is formulated as a single burst and should be worn for a quick blast of scent. 

What do I do if I can't find an item I'm looking for online - does that mean you don't sell it?

Not necessarily, however we list all items we have in stock and even though we have new products arriving daily, once an item has sold out we cannot guarantee if or when the item will be back in stock.    

Do your products come in their original packaging / boxes?

Please be assured that all of our fragrances and cosmetics are delivered to you in their original packaging.

What does unboxed or imperfect mean?

Products that have varying degree of damaged packaging, in most cases this could be squashed, scratched or stained boxes. Where the packaging has been extensively damaged we may remove the box in order to dispatch the product out safely.
