What Are Perfume, Fragrances, and Cologne Made Out Of?

Perfume is made from alcohol and oils. It is the most expensive type of fragrance because of the amount of essential oils in it. EDP or Eau de Parfum has about 15-22% essential oils. Eau de Toilette or EDT has 8-15% essential oils. The weaker type of fragrance is called Eau de Cologne which has only 4% oils. An example of one of the most popular colognes is Abercrombie and Fitch, Fierce. The most subtle type of fragrance is called Eau Fraiche which only contains 1-3% essential oils.
