    There are essentially five types of perfume, but virtually all perfume is made from ethyl alcohol and essential fragrance oils. The difference in each type of perfume comes in the percentages of each. For those with sensitivity to fragrances, "Eau Fraiche" is a good choice, it is the weakest type of perfume and has the least amount of fragrance, with only about 1 to 3 percent essential oil fragrance and the remainder, 97 to 99 percent, ethyl alcohol. The next strongest, with about 4 or 5 percent essential oil fragrance is "Eau de Cologne". "Eau de Toilette" is the next strongest perfume with anywhere from 8 to 15 percent essential oil fragrance. Then, stronger still, with about 15 to 22 percent essential oil is "Eau de Parfum". The strongest and most costly fragrance is simply called "Perfume" with about 22 to 25 percent essential oil fragrance and 75 to 78 percent ethyl alcohol. There are many groups of essential fragrance oils and they include - Floral, Oriental, Floriental, Chypre, Green Marine and Fruit fragrances. Several types of plants are used to make fragrance oils including magnolia, moss, neroli, orange, orris, patchouli, eucalyptus, frankincense, gardenia, geranium, iris, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lilac, lily, lily of the valley, pine, raspberry, rose, sage, sandalwood, tuberose, vanilla, violet, ylang-ylang, anise, bay leaf, bergamot, cardamom, and cedar wood. Animal products are also sometimes used in perfume, substances such as castoreum, a secretion of the beaver and civet from the civet cat, musk from the male musk deer and ambergris from sperm whales. These compounds are used to reduce the evaporation rate and improve stability of the fragrance. They also add a certain mystery to the smell.
