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.
