The history of perfume oils dates back to ancient Egypt when these fine scented oils were presented to royalty as gifts. In modern times, most people think perfume as department store fragrances, which consist mainly of the concentrated oil and alcohol solution. Here are some interesting facts about perfume oils :
  1. Strength of smell - Perfume oils are highly concentrated and up to ten times more concentrated than department store perfumes. This quality allows oils to last longer than their eau de perfume counterparts.
  2. Alcohol - Perfumes have alcohol in them, which creates different smell effects. Most body oils use carrier oils like jojoba or grapeseed oil in place of alcohol. In some fragrances, the smell can change as the alcohol evaporates different scent notes through time.
  3. Price - Perfumes have a very high markup and great profit margins, which is perhaps why many celebrities have embarked on the trend of creating their own perfumes and colognes. Perfume oils can be sold very cheaply, or even more expensively than the perfumes, depending on how they are positioned in the market.
  4. Body chemistry - Just because a perfume or cologne smells good on you, doesn't mean that the oil version will. Perfumes only have a small percentage of oil, so they are quite different than pure body oils. This interaction between the fragrance and your body may produce a different scent perception.
  5. Packaging - Department store perfumes are very nicely packaged and thus make great gifts for friends and family. Many perfume oils are sold in less attractive containers, That’s why it’s cheap.
  6. Uses - Perfume oils can be used to create a variety of scented products, like soap, candles, bath oils, air fresheners, and many other types of scented products. While, perfumes are only intended for use on the body, Be aware that there are different types of fragrance oils and that pure uncut oils are not safe for use on the skin.
Try out a small sample first and who knows, you might just discover a delightful new product to add to your personal inventory.
