Answer Eau de Cologne (EdC) Eau de Cologne is a local trademark for "Kölnisch Wasser" Cologne, Germany. EdC is the term used today to refer to a perfume solution with ~ 3%-5% essential oils in an alcohol and water base. Eau de Toilette (EdT) ~ 6-10% essential oils in an alcohol and water base. Eau de Parfum (EdP) ~ 11-15% essential oils in an alcohol and water base. Eau de Solide and Edition S (EdS) ~1% essential oils in an alcohol and water base are a new kind of perfumes since 1994. ~1% essential oils in a liquid wax base are perfume, lip balm and skin care at once. EdS is a trademark for EdS-Parfums. Extrait Perfume Perfume, or parfum, as it is sometimes called, is the highest concentration of essential oils, with ~ 20-40% essential oils in an alcohol and water base.
