answer 1
eau de parfum contains a stronger essence of the scent and should last longer on the skin

Get the parfum spray. It has more oils in it and because of that the scent lasts longer.

answer 3
An eau de toilette is a more diluted version of eau de parfum, and an eau de parfum is a diluted version of parfum. Because of this, eau de toilettes are slightly cheaper, but usually smell just as lovely. However, there are exceptions. I'd recommend trying both versions out for yourself before deciding to see if you can perceive a difference.

The major difference between eau de perfume and eau de toilette is eau de perfume is made from a higher concentration of the oil of the perfume, therefore this will last longer during the day. In olden days, eau de perfume was used to make the perfume oil last longer in terms of time. It's like taking a drink and watering it down to make it last longer. ideally perfume is the highest concentration. Eau de perfume means water of the perfume. Eau de toilette means water of the bathroom. This was usually used after using the bathroom to freshen up. Eau de toilette is a lower concentration than eau de perfume and will probably not last the entire day. Hope this helps clarify things.

EDP lasts longer, and more worth it.

I believe the parfums have a stronger scent concentration than the toilettes, which is why they're more expensive. If you're not a fragrance snob, the toilette will do you just fine. =)

Question
Is Hanae Mori made as a man's scent?
I received this as a sample (not hanae mori HM, just a small flacon of hanae mori eau de toilette) in a previous order----loved it (I'm a woman) but when I went on-line to order it, it appears to be a man's scent--I'm just wondering if the scent I have (which I adore) is the "HM" the reviewers are speaking of or do I have another scent previously designed for a female? I just want to be sure that what I am ordering is what is depicted on-line---thanks!

I have the same exact question!! Sorry, I do not have an answer. I really do want to purchase a full size bottle of the fragrance, but suppose I'll need to go into the store and sniff around to find the same scent. ;p

I believe everyomne is speaking of the parfume spray or eau de toilette. I have the parfume sample, it's wonderful and strong, also seemd to be long lasting copmared to others.

Hanae Mori actually has both a men's and women's scent. I have the women's and love it, and just bought for my husband as well. He loves the men's scent and told me to buy more when he runs out.

Question
Lasting power?
I'm trying to figure out what the average lasting power of the scent is. So my question is what is the lasting power of this perfume? And how many spritzes did you use? Thanks for all your help.

It depends on which formulation you get. If you get the eau de toilette which is a less concentrated formula, then you may need to spray more and more often to make it last during the day. If you get the eau de parfume which is a more concentrated formula, then you usually get away with one spray which will last the entire day. It also depends on how much you sweat.

It is not exceptionally long-lasting, but it also does not instantly fade.

All you need is to spray once on each side of your neck and the scent will last for about 8hrs.

PARFUM - This is one of the strongest perfume fragrance available. This means that you need to use less and the fragrance will last much longer depending on skin type. Will last 6 to 8 hours.

Eau de parfum - EDP (8 - 15% perfume oil)

EAU DE TOILETTE - EDT This is a lighter fragrance and is therefore most used for the casual everyday use. It is less expensive than Eau de Parfum. Will lasts for 2 to 4 hours .

Eau de toilette - EDT (4 - 10% perfume oil)

It is the same scent, but typically they place the more diluted eau de toilette in the sample and not the stronger eau de parfume.

In August there was a 9 sample pack that came with some substitutions. The Hanae Mori was not listed as part of that sample pack, but it was included in mine.

Question
I am not sure which sample I received - need to know.
It appears there are two men's fragrances. The sample is black and simply says Hanae Mori- eau de toilet. I am assuming it is this one. Please let me know. Thanks!

The sample that I got was black, said Hanae Mori with the letters "HM" in a sort of circle under that, and says Eau de Toilette on the other side. This fragrance matched that sample, although I got the Eau de Parfum as it is just a little stronger.
