Colognes, Perfumes and Fragrance Mists

  • Colognes (also called eau de cologne) are scented liquid products typically made of alcohol and various fragrant oils.
  • A perfume is a product that imparts and diffuses a fragrant odor, especially a volatile liquid distilled from flowers or a synthetically prepared equivalent.
  • A fragrance mist consists of fine drops of a liquid, such as water or perfume, sprayed into the air.

Colognes, perfumes and fragrance mists contain special ingredients that help apply and disperse the fragrance ingredients and ensure they stay on the skin.
