What do you want to know about perfume?

“Dyba, what is this?” Enon asked, reffering to some kind of bottle on the desk. She picked up the bottle and smelled it. “ My new perfume, Bueberry, nice, eh?” Dyba smiled. “Actually, what is perfume? I know eau de toilette, perfume?”
·         Perfume is:
·          Made up of alcohol, water and perfume (fragrance) oil, sometimes not contains alcohol.
·         It is a word that comes from Latin per fumum, which means “through smoke” (per means through, fumum means smoke).
·         There are 3 major types: oriental, floral and chypre (means “very sincere” in French). There are also many sub-variations such as woody, musky, aquatic, spicy and fruity.
·         Eau de – means “water of” in French.
·         Eau de cologne – contains about 3-5% perfume oil. Used by men.
·         Aftershave lotions and splash colognes – contains about 0.5-2% perfume oil. Used by men.
·         Eau de parfum – contains about 15-18% perfume oil. Used by women.
·         Eau de toilette – contains about 4-8% perfume oil. Used by women.
·         Parfum (perfume) is the strongest of them all as it contains the most perfume oil. Use sparingly.
·         Scented ingredients added to perfumes include ginger, grapefruit, musk, peppercorns, mandarin peel, fig leaves, rose, watercress, bamboo, clementine, vanilia, honeysuckle, green tea and the list goes on.
·         A perfume contains between 10 to more than 250 ingredients.
·         Everyone has their own personal aura. Thanks to genes, diet, skin type, medication, stress levels, pore size and perspiration. These factors can affect the warmth of the skin which will in turn affect the scent result. That means, a perfume could smell differently on 2 persons.
·         Industrial perfumes are used to hide odours, e.g. in paints and cleaning agents. Some perfumes give off a leather smell to non-leather furnishings.
·         Some workplaces in Canada and the US have encouraged employees to refrain from putting on perfumes and other fragrance products. Reason? They can trigger asthma, migraine and certain health problems for people who are very allergic to them.

“O, I do understand now, thanx Dyba” Enon took the perfume and leaving the room. “Hey, give me back my perfume!”
