Classification of perfumes according to intensity
The degree of intensity of a perfume determines not only the price but also the concentration of the aromas. This does not mean that only the strongest are the best. Absolutely. Some people tolerate better a medium-low concentration, since it is more pleasant for the day today, and leaves the most intense for special occasions.
Although this is common, it is worth remembering this classification:

It has a 1% concentration. Although it does not last long, it offers a punctual fresh sensation. It is practical for when we play sports .
Eau de cologne
It has between 3 – 6% concentration and is one of the most common in perfumeries. Its fragrance is almost always citric and very light. Great for day to day.

If your skin is rather greasy, in this case, it is common for the sweat itself to end up varying the perfume itself. It is something that can happen to us all in the summer times. So what can we do?
- Choose soft perfumes or citrus.
- In winter, or if your skin is usually drier, the fragrances of oriental flowers and a little more intense will be very pleasant.
