Starting a perfume collection requires you to get quality perfumes and perfume bottles that are built to last.


Knowing where to buy perfume bottles and other essentials will come in handy. This is a good investment because every woman and man always has perfumes in their drawers or dressers. This is because they make a big difference in having a fresh and clean scent. Read on to get a clearer picture of what this is all about.


Choosing the right type of perfume

Perfumes come in different types, tastes, and scents. This is because people have different tastes and you must keep this in mind when starting a perfume collection. Here are a few types for you to choose from.

Crystal Perfume Bottles

Crystal Perfume Bottles



Parfum, also known as Extrait de perfume is a perfume that contains the highest concentration of perfume oils compared to its peers. It contains between 15% and 40% perfume oil and also includes other ingredients such as jasmine absolute, tuberose enfleurage, and orris butter. This allows it to last up to 24 hours. The best way to use this perfume diffusion is to apply it directly to your pulse points. This is mainly because it has a very low alcohol content and is not suitable for wearing.


To apply this you have the option of either dabbing it on your skin using the stopper or just spraying it on. The benefit of this is that the low alcohol content makes it perfect for people with sensitive skin.


Eau de Parfum

Eau de Parfum (EDP) is a perfume with a perfume oil concentration of between 15% and 20%. It has a very pronounced sillage (power of diffusion) and is ideal for use on your clothes and skin. It lasts for four to five hours. It consists of a large amount of alcohol, essential oils, or perfume oils, and a percentage of distilled water. Apply this perfume to your pulse points, behind your ears, and on your neck. These are the warm parts of your body that will smell beautiful.

Eau de Toilette

This perfume, often called EDT or 'aromatic water', contains perfume oils at a concentration of 5% to 15%. It is a light perfume with a high alcohol content and essential oils. The perfume lasts only three to four hours a day. The fragrance wears off slowly, but can be reapplied during the day. This is an affordable alternative with a strong scent and beautiful packaging.


Eau de Cologne

EDC contains a fragrance concentration of 2% to 4% and a high concentration of alcohol and distilled water. Due to the low concentration of perfume oils, this cologne only lasts for two hours. This cologne usually comes in a large perfume bottle, which means you will need to purchase a small refill bottle. This will help make it easier to carry around and reapply during the day.

Eau Fraiche

Eau Fraiche contains fewer perfume oils than any other type of perfume. These range from 1% to 3%, which means that the fragrance does not last long. It takes less than 2 hours to disappear. The fragrance appears mainly in the form of mist and splashes. It contains a lot of water and low alcohol content. This makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin.


Choosing the right perfume bottle size

Picking the right perfume bottle requires you to consider a number of key factors, one of which is size. There are different sizes of bottles available, which means you need to know what you want. Do you intend to use the fragrance as your signature perfume, or just a few times? The size you choose will determine the overall cost and duration of the scent you get.


When it comes to the size of perfume bottles, you need to distinguish between the different units of measurement involved. These measurements are done by ounces, milliliters, and sprays. These different variables can present a dilemma when people go to buy their perfume. This is why you need to be familiar with one of these measurements and that it is equivalent to the others.
