• A Guide To Refillable Perfumes & Colognes

    Do you love your perfumes and colognes? Want to do your bit to help the planet? Why not make the switch to a refillable bottle of your favourite scent to help save the planet and also save you some money as well. Picking up a refillable product is a good way of saving you some pennies as you are not buying a whole new product again and it’s known they are a little bit cheaper, especially as you keep the original packaging or bottle.

    I wanted to put together a guide for you filled with all of the refillable perfumes and colognes you can buy from your favourite brands. This seems like a new thing coming into the shops, and I really hope it’s something that sticks around and more brands take onto.

    Before we jump into the brands and their delicious smelling liquid, let’s clear up some fragrance strength jargon that often gets confused.

    Concentrated Perfume Oil and other blend ingredients:
    Eau Fraiche – 1-3% – lasts for up to 2 hours
    Eau de Cologne – 2-4% – lasts for up to 2 hours
    Eau de Toilette (EDT) – 5-15% – lasts for up to 2-3 hours
    Eau de Parfum (EDP) – 15-20% – lasts for up to 4-5 hours
    Parfum – 20-30% – lasts for up to 6-8 hours

    The higher percentage of concentrated perfume oils and less alcohol will mean their scent will last longer. Eau de Toilette contains a lower concentration and will therefore not last as long as EDP and Parfum with the concentration over 15%, the scent can last over 4 hours.
