What is the difference between Pure Perfume, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Eau de Cologne?

The difference is the amount or concentration of oils in the fragrance. The highest concentration is in pure perfume (or parfum), then Eau de Parfum, then Eau de Toilette, and finally Eau de Cologne. 

What is a tester?

Testers are discounted items which don’t have branded box and are great if you don’t need aa box. Testers are 100% authentic, fresh and completely full just like the original fragrance, however they are meant for the counter in a department store. Testers often come in a plain white box but sometimes they do not have a cap or a box. The savings on the packaging means you save even more! 

What do fragrance notes refer to?

Fragrances are comprised of many different scents, these scents are called “notes.”

Top notes are very light and last just a few minutes (5-10 minutes). Middle notes become apparent in about 15 minutes after application. These can last up to an hour or more. Bottom notes are the heavier ingredients. These last the longest, usually for several hours. How can I keep my fragrance from going bad?

Keep all fragrances in a cool, dry area, and away from windows as sunlight can unbalance the various ingredients. An opened bottle should be kept in its box to insure a longer shelf life.
