Different Types of Fragrance Concentrations

first_imgWhen you have an initial encounter with a fragrance, you start to form connections that intertwine the smell with emotions. While a pleasant fragrance can help you stand out immediately in the crowd, on the other hand, an unpleasant one can be an instant turn off.Years of research has proven that fragrances have a significant impact on your personality. You can get an understanding of a person by the fragrance he chooses.The Right Way To Select A FragranceI recently got in touch with various perfumers globally. The one conversation that stood true was with Mr Pulkit Malhotra and Mr Parth Malhotra, Cofounders, Mocemsa Perfumes. “You should first spray a small amount of the perfume on your wrist and wait around 30 seconds. It shall allow the alcohol to dissolve and then you can gently inhale it to know about the fragrance,” explained Pulkit, an experienced perfumer.A perfume has 3 distinct notes. The top, middle and base notes. While the base note of a perfume is the strongest and lasts the longest, the top note is what lasts the shortest and evaporates the fastest.And, hence, you should try to find a perfume with a base note that soothes your nerves. Moreover, you must trust your instincts and if you like the fragrance right away, you must pick the perfume.Brands like Chanel, Viktor & Rolf and Mocemsa among the others, for instance, offer a wide range of fragrances that have a higher concentration. Their perfumes will help you feel good and would stay longer as you step out in style.The concentration of a fragrance determines the strength of a fragrance. Perfumes with higher fragrance concentrations have more perfume oil and less alcohol. Fragrance concentrations are of many categories like parfum, Eau de parfum, eau de cologne, eau de toilette and Eau Fraiche. After learning from my interactions with these perfumers, I have listed down the categories of fragrances, which shall help you understand several dosages of fragrance:ParfumParfum has the highest fragrance concentration. Among all scents, perfumes are the most expensive ones and people with sensitive skin might do better with parfum. People with sensitive skin types can prefer parfums as they do not contain harm causing chemicals.Although many existing brands claim a concentration of 15% to 40% fragrance, they fail to deliver the same.Eau de ParfumEau de parfum (EDP) occupies the next spot when it comes to concentrations. Eau de parfum has a fragrance concentration of between 15% and 20% and it lasts up to four to five hours. It is also less expensive than a parfum but it is still suitable for sensitive skin types. Eau de parfum is one of the most commonly used fragrances as people prefer to wear it for the normal occasion.Eau de ToiletteDerived from a French word, Eau de Toilette means getting ready. The fragrance concentration Eau de Toilette (EDT) varies from 5% to 15%. Although it is cheaper than the two perfumes listed above, it is still one of the most popular fragrances among people. It lasts lesser than Eau de Parfum and usually lasts for less than four hours. Eau de Toilette is usually worn during the night.Eau de CologneEau de cologne generally has a 2% to 4% per cent concentration and has quite a high concentration. It is cheaper than other types of fragrance and is not suitable for sensitive skins. It will only last for two hours. Eau de Cologne needs to be applied in more amount and they generally come in bigger bottles.Eau FraicheEau Fraiche is almost similar to Eau de Cologne and it can last for up to two hours. However, it’s of even lower concentration, which is normally only 1% to 3%. It has a low fragrance concentration but it does not contain a high amount of alcohol.Along with the types of perfume listed above, there are many veils of mist, aftershaves, and other fragrances available which are highly popular among people. Many brands offer a wide range of perfumes which can help you smell great.Enhance your persona and let yourselves shine.last_img read more

International Race Community Loses Legendary Medical Chief

first_imgLONDON (AP) – Sid Watkins, the former Formula One medical chief who was credited with saving the lives of several race drivers, has died. He was 84. F1 team officials and Watkins’ family said the English neurosurgeon died Wednesday. Watkins was at the forefront of F1 safety for 26 years, serving as the series’ medical delegate from 1978 to 2004. As a trackside doctor, he was credited with helping save the lives of several drivers after heavy crashes. They included two-time F1 champion Mika Hakkinen and Rubens Barrichello. Watkins tended to Ayrton Senna after his fatal crash at Imola in 1994. McLaren chairman Ron Dennis says “it’s probably fair to say he did more than anyone, over many years, to make Formula One as safe as it is today.” Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.last_img read more

Minority Mentoring Picnic slated for November 14

first_img Minority Mentoring Picnic slated for November 14 At the new “Leaders and Legends” tent, inspirational stories will flow from Chief Justice Peggy Quince, Greenberg Traurig Chief Executive Officer Cesar Alvarez, and former Bar President and U.S. District Court of Appeal Judge Patricia Seitz, and other big shots in Florida law.But John Kozyak, a Miami lawyer organizing the Sixth Annual Minority Mentoring Picnic, insists you don’t need to be a legendary lawyer to be a good mentor.“I totally agree that solo practitioners, small firm lawyers, government lawyers, state court judges, etc., can all be wonderful mentors, because the students are looking for lawyers and judges who will spend a bit of time getting to know them and to share real-life experiences,” Kozyak said.“Lawyers and judges intrigued by the idea of being a mentor should go to my Web site and attend the picnic. They will quickly see several hundred law students walking around with ‘need mentor’ stickers, and they can initiate a conversation with them and then decide whether they are interested in working with that student. This is not a major time commitment, but it is a very rewarding experience.”As Bar President Jesse Diner describes the annual event at Hialeah’s Amelia Earhart Park: “The Minority Mentoring Picnic is an enjoyable, positive way for everyone to get together and further the inclusive bond all in the profession, or all seeking to join the profession, should strive to achieve.”Juliet Roulhac, a member of the Bar Board of Governors, agrees the picnic’s purpose has staying power.“The picnic provides the opportunity of having diverse lawyers interact with and be matched to mentor minority law students in a relaxed, nonthreatening atmosphere. These lawyers’ sincere commitment to help our future lawyers is both heartwarming and inspirational,” Roulhac said. “I have the same commitment, and I am always pleased to participate. I have met many outstanding students over the years and still have mentoring relationships with some of them. These relationships have greatly benefited me personally. Additionally, the students, whether matched or not matched as mentees, do gain some networking experience as well.”For more information about the picnic on November 14, from noon to 3 p.m., and to R.S.V.P., go to kttlaw.com/mmp.

Gophers drop another slugfest to N. Iowa

first_imgGophers drop another slugfest to N. IowaThe two teams have combined for 59 runs during three games this season. Trevor BornApril 17, 2008Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintWhen it comes to playing Northern Iowa, the Gophers have learned that anything can happen.The two teams met for the third time this season Wednesday afternoon, and the Panthers won 9-8. The Gophers won 11-9 in March, and then needed just one more strike to win earlier this month, but lost 13-11.The Gophers wasted 12 hits and a 5-0 fifth-inning lead, tied the game in the top of the ninth, but lost another close game. They have now lost their last four games that have been decided by two runs or less.The Gophers led 7-4 with one out and a runner on first in the bottom of the seventh. Brandon Douglas hit a groundball at shortstop Nate Hanson that appeared to be an easy double play, but the ball took an odd hop and went over Hanson’s head.Instead of being out of the inning, there were now runners on first and second with one out. As often happens in baseball, the next hitter homered to right field to tie the game.“You just can’t control things like that,” outfielder Eric Decker said. “We’ve gotten a lot of those kinds of bounces this year.”Trailing 8-7 in the ninth inning, Decker struck out to lead off the inning, but reached base on a passed ball. He then made an unorthodox baseball move, advancing to second base on a foul-out to the catcher.With two outs, catcher Jeff DeSmidt was down to his last strike before singling to right field and tying the game.But the Panthers (21-10, 8-1 Missouri Valley Conference) came back in the bottom of the ninth with a walk, a single and a sacrifice fly off freshman reliever Scott Matyas. “We won a lot of one-run ball games last year, and we haven’t this year,” head coach John Anderson said. “We don’t have the same experience this year. We had 12 seniors last year and they knew how to win those types of games.”Freshman Scott Fern pitched well in his second career start for the Gophers (15-18, 5-7 Big Ten), giving up one earned run and striking out four in his four innings of work.Anderson likes to give several pitchers work in nonconference, midweek games to keep them fresh, so he took Fern out in the fifth.The three Minnesota relievers – Dustin Kablunde, Luke Rasmussen and Matyas – combined to give up six runs in the final five innings of the game.The true freshman Klabunde took the brunt of it, giving up four runs and six hits in 2.1 innings.Going LongThe Gophers came into the game with just 13 homeruns in 32 games, the third lowest mark in the Big Ten.But Decker, Nate Hanson and DeSmidt – the second, third and fourth hitters- all went long Wednesday.In all, the teams combined to hit five homers out of Riverfront Stadium.last_img read more

Copa America 2015: Neymar the star name in Dunga’s Brazil squad

first_img CEST There was also room for Real Madrid players Casemiro (who is on loan at Porto) and Danilo (who will sign from Porto in the summer). Former Madrid player Robinho has also made the squad.  One of the main talking points was the omission of Chelsea’s Oscar, although the player himself later confirmed a training ground injury has ruled him out of the tournament.  Sport EN Barcelona forward Neymar will spearhead Brazil’s bid to win this summer’s Copa America in Chile.  Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves did make the squad, as did Atletico Madrid defender Miranda.  Upd. at 21:18 Brazil have been drawn in a group alongside Peru, Colombia and Venezuela and the competition gets underway in June. Dunga unsurprisingly included the 23-year-old in the squad which he named on Tuesday, although there was, perhaps also unsurprisingly, no room for any of Barça’s other Brazilian players. 05/05/2015 Neymar has been in great form this season, scoring 33 goals for Barça, and will be key to any success Brazil can achieve. last_img read more
