Opium Cologne is made of natural or synthetic fragrant oil extracts diluted in water or
high-grade alcohol. The dilutions of these oil extracts determine the strength
Opium Cologne which, in turn, exacts the lasting power of the scent.
Eau de Toilette and Eau de Cologne are generally interchangeable, particularly
in Men's fragrances. After Shave has the least amount of oil extract.
The different perfume strengths are as follows: Eau de Cologne - least concentrated with fragrance
lasting up to 1 hour Eau de Toilette - concentrated with fragrance lasting
up to 2 hours Eau de Parfum - concentrated with fragrance lasting
up to 3-4 hours Cologne or Parfum Classic - highly concentrated
with fragrance lasting up to 5-6 hours
Opium Cologne notes
Opium Cologne is comprised of many different scents. These scents
are called fragrance notes.
Top notes are very light and last but a few minutes (5-10 minutes).
Middle notes become apparent in about 15 minutes after application.
They can last up to an hour or more.
Bottom or base notes last the longest, usually for several hours.
last much longer than others
People with dry skin usually find their
Opium Cologne holding time
shorter than those with oily skin because oily skin has more natural
moisture to hold in the fragrance. PH levels (amount of acidity
in our skin) also vary slightly from person to person. Our individual
levels of PH will determine how each ingredient in
Opium will react.
Opium Cologne last longer
A perfume will last longer on some people than on others because
of differences in skin (oily or dry) and PH levels. To achieve
a longer effect, try layering your
Opium bath gel,
moisturizer, or powder before applying the actual fragrance will
usually have a longer lasting effect. Apply the perfume low on
your body allowing the scent to rise. Also, apply it behind your
ears and neck. A light spray on your hair can last all day.
Differences between a
Opium Cologne Splash and a Spray
There is absolutely no difference in the perfume. The difference
is only in the application. A Spray bottle, being ostensibly sealed
all the time, may actually have a longer shelf life. Making the
Opium Spray and Splash is entirely a matter of
Opium Cologne Testers
Opium Cologne Testers are created to help promote the fragrance. Although the majority of our
products are NOT Testers, the Testers we do carry are clearly marked as such in
the Available Selections column of every product page. Testers are provided to
large retail stores to allow their customers to “test” the actual
Opium Cologne before buying it.
It is the same
Opium Cologne that one finds in full size
Testers may come in a variety sizes and forms of packaging. Some
are offered in simple generic plain white or brown boxes with
or without a cap. Some bottles may have “Tester” or
“Demonstration” written on the bottle. Some are even
without boxes, while others may come ornately wrapped. Regardless
of packaging, the quality of the perfume is not affected. The
contents of testers are the same as in the standard full priced
packaged item. One can enjoy their favorite
Opium Cologne at the
lowest prices. We sell only new and unused testers free from damage
Opium Cologne usually contains alcohol
Alcohol makes the
Opium Cologne emanate from your skin. Without
alcohol, you would be the only person who knew you were wearing
any perfume at all.
Opium Cologne from going bad
Opium Cologne in a cool, dry area away from windows, as sunlight
and heat can unbalance
Opium ingredients. Any opened
should be kept in its box to ensure a longer life.
The difference between Cologne and After Shave
The fragrance of Cologne will generally last much longer than
that of After Shave. However, many men choose to wear both. One
can use less of each, the overall scent will last longer and still
have the facial benefit of after shave.
Differences between After Shave Lotion, Gel, and Balm
After Shave Lotion will usually sting while helping to close the
pores after shaving.
After Shave Balm soothes the skin.
After Shave Gel soothes and cools the skin while relieving razor
