Perfumes and Perfume Oils - Twins Apart

Nov 3, 2007
When you look back in history, the use of oils and ointments goes as far back as the years before Christ when ancient Egyptians gave them to the royal ones as presents or vice versa. Lately when we consider perfumes we see the counter at Wal-Mart or the online fragrance stores. Perfume oils are pure while the perfume scents are blended with alcohol.

The most common fragrances we commonly buy today are made from concentrated plant extracts and alcohol. Perfume oil is very pure with scent that is at least ten times stronger than the regular marketed brands. You simply don't have to use very much with concentrated perfume oil and they last longer both on your skin and in their bottle.

Your regular Perfumes are blended with alcohol, which causes them to have different scents at different times. When the bottle is new, it will be fresh and strong, then as the alcohol unavoidably evaporates, the smell fades. But with the oils, the scent is seemingly ageless as it lasts through time continuing to smell as exquisite as when you first bought it.

Perfume oils while expensive can definitely be bought at a reasonable discount price. The marketing and packaging for alcohol based perfumes has increased tremendously, while prices for scents that have been produced for decades have skyrocketed. Usually fragrance manufacturers will change the box and maybe one small ingredient, and then re-release the product at twice the cost. The markup is high that a high profit margin is ensured. Although some perfume oils are highly marketed and expensive, they can be bought at reasonable rates from a variety of stores.

If a perfume or cologne seems to smell delightful on your skin, you better believe the oil will smell even better. Regular perfumes only have a small amount of the actual oil in their ingredients, where as the oils are pure and concentrated. Considering the fact we all have different natural scents, as well as different levels of acidity in our skin, you really need to test it on before you rush in and buy it.

While perfumes and colognes are only to be sprayed or dabbed on your external body, perfume oils on the other hand are much more versatile, being able to be mixed into your bath, made into soaps or candles. Some enterprising individuals even like to use certain ones in their cooking. Please make sure you do your research on the pure oil before you buy it or use it in any other alternative way. Cautiously, some can not be applied directly to your skin, or anywhere else you might like to put it. You might need to mix it with a base oil to dilute it before use.

When buying perfume or perfume oil, be sure to try it first, and take time to see if you may have an allergic reaction, how long it lasts and how it changes over time on your skin. With the prices you can pay for them you need to make sure you will actually want to use it. Perfume oils are becoming more popular on the market every day, and the more we see the benefits of using them, they will be just as popular as regular perfumes and colognes.
