5 Reasons Why You Should Try Concentrated Perfumes
7 Nov 2018

The Middle East's weather is hot and humid – this explains why many in the Middle East crave for a good perfume.

Perfumes and colognes are a great way to keep you smelling fresh all day, especially in the hot and humid weather that the Middle East brings each year. But, the benefits of using traditional perfumes are nothing compared to the benefits of concentrated perfumes. Actually, using a concentrated perfume can end up being far better for your health and your wallet than using a traditional one.

Aren’t sure what the hype is about concentrated perfumes in the Middle East? Don’t worry. In this article, you will learn the five main reasons why you need to try a concentrated perfume today.



If you’re a perfume lover, you’ve likely found that your perfume’s scent has faded away throughout the day. This can leave you feeling less than fresh, sometimes at the time you need a boost of freshness the most.

Traditional perfumes and colognes contain up to 40 percent alcohol. Alcohol is such an important ingredient because it allows you to easily spray it on for your application. But alcohol can cause the scent to dissipate more quickly than you’d like it to, leaving you free of fragrance for the rest of your day. To give you an idea, statistics claim that traditional perfumes tend to last about one to three hours before the scent vanishes or changes!

However, concentrated perfumes contain far less alcohol, normally less than 20 percent. Similar statistics on concentrated perfumes claim that they last as long as six to 15 hours after the application. This means that you’re getting more scent and less alcohol “filler.” So, if you decide to try a concentrated perfume, you will notice a long-lasting scent that will keep you smelling great all day long.



Your skin is your largest organ. It contains millions of pores that help deliver oxygen and hydration to different parts of your body. 

But traditional perfumes and sprays are actually pretty bad for your skin. You’ve already learned about the high alcohol content associated with traditional perfume. Alcohol may be great for facilitating sprays, but it is actually a drying agent.

Putting too much alcohol on your skin can cause it to dry out and become irritated or flaky. However, concentrated perfumes typically come in the form of oils. Oils are natural and healthy for your skin. Not only do they provide a great scent, concentrated perfume also helps to keep your skin hydrated!



Traditional perfumes are somewhat watered down. Their scent isn’t very strong and doesn’t last very long. This means that, if you want to stay showered in your favorite scent all day, you’ll have to do a number of reapplications.

This can cause you to run out of your perfume quickly, especially if you’re the type who reapplies your perfume several times a day. Perfumes can be as affordable as AED 50 a bottle, but designer fragrances can cost hundreds of dirhams. Needless to say, this can come out to be a rather expensive commodity.

But, with concentrated perfume, you don’t have to worry about using all of your scent up quickly. Because concentrated perfume contains only a little bit of alcohol, you are getting more of the scent and, thus, only need to use a few drops for all-day coverage. This means that your bottle of concentrated perfume will last much longer than the average traditional perfume-wearer’s bottle.

So, not only will you be able to skip reapplications by using a concentrated perfume, you can also keep more money in your wallet!



When it comes down to your skin, natural is and has always been the better option. Natural ingredients are not harmful to your skin and can promote healthy skin growth and repair. Unfortunately, instead of creating interesting and shelf-worthy scents, many perfume companies add in rather harmful ingredients to their perfumes.

For example, several companies use animal secretions in their perfumes, and others use harmful chemicals. The EPA found chemicals in perfumes including acetone, ethanol, methylene chloride, and linalool among others. These, if used in excess, can cause several health symptoms, including headaches, nausea, dizziness, confusion, and throat problems.

Concentrated perfumes typically contain several more natural ingredients than traditional perfumes. These natural scents can include fragrances like rose, lavender, and sandalwood among others. Using a concentrated perfume increases the likelihood that you will smell great the natural way – free of harmful chemicals and substances.



Have you ever reached for your favorite perfume only to see that it has expired? Better yet, have you ever sprayed a perfume that you’ve had for years to find that it has lost its zing? 

A typical bottle of traditional, alcohol-based perfume will last the wearer around three to five years. Several people have a special scent that they save for those special occasions.

However, if you try out a concentrated perfume, you will be able to keep it for between 8 to 10 years. This is because the alcohol isn’t as present and doesn’t allow for any scent breakdown. Even after the 8 to 10 years are up, many people say that the scent changes, but still smells pleasant.

When you try concentrated perfume, you can be sure that your scent will last a long time. This is great for those special scent-wearers and people who rarely wear perfumes on a day-to-day basis.

As you can see, there are several great reasons to try a concentrated scent for your next perfume purchase. If you have the option to use a perfume that will smell great, be kind to your skin, last longer, contain more natural ingredients, and stay good for several years, why wouldn’t you try it?
