Difference between "Body Fragrance" & "Perfume"?

I want to buy a package & there are:

- The Perfume 50ml

- The Body Fragrance 100ml

- The Shiny Body Lotion 200ml

- The Shower Gel 200ml

What's the difference between "The Body Fragrance" & "The Perfume"? Is one more diluted then the other?


I support MANY causes. Including Hydrocephalus Awareness. Have you heard of that? Please look it up & you can support it too! Thanks for all the help from those who weren't degrading.

    More fragrant scents will be more expensive and sold in smaller quantities. They will have a higher percentage of "aromatic compounds"

    Perfume is the strongest. Body Fragrance will be more diluted with alcohol--if it wasn't it would be called Perfume, because expert shoppers will look for the word "Perfume" or "Parfum" to know they are getting quality.

    here are different types of perfumes, the more "aromatic compounds"--the more of the liquid is actual scent and not filler:

    * Perfume extract (Extrait): 15-30% (IFRA: typical 20%) aromatic compounds

    * Eau de Parfum (EdP): 10-15% (typical ~15%) aromatic compounds

    * Eau de Toilette (EdT): 5-20% (typical ~10%) aromatic compounds

    * Eau de Cologne (EdC): 2-5% aromatic compounds

    shower gels and lotions have a specific purpose (washing or moisturizing) and the scent is secondary, so usually not as strong as a perfume.

    Body Fragrance is usually less potent has a lower concentration than even EdC.

    Body Fragrnace is a very light scent that is used for a temporary scent while perfume is meant to have a lasting scent that "sticks" easier to skin. The fragrance should be used for out of shower so that it can absorb into the skin while perfume is for daily use for a nice smell.

    Body Fragrance is a watered down version of the more concentrated perfume. It's won't last as long and is considered "cheaper."

    yes the "body fragrance" is more diluted than the perfume. perfume is going to be stronger. the body fragrance is more like a body splash :) hope that helps!
