Essential Oils & Perfume Oils
Most of us like to surround ourselves with scents of all kinds, no wonder, because they have many positive effects. Fragrances can affect our well-being and influence our mood. Well-known scent carriers are, of course, perfume and essential oils, but there is also a variant: the perfume oil.
Fragrances are complex chemical compounds, which can be of natural or synthetic origin. Natural fragrances are naturally occurring aromatic substances that are produced by physical, enzymatic or microbiological processes. Synthetic and nature-identical fragrances are produced in the laboratory from artificial and/or natural substances.
Which fragrances fit together?
Essential oil or perfume oil?
Both are oil, so what exactly is the difference between essential and perfume oil? What both have in common is that an odorless oil is used as a carrier substance.
In fact, essential oil is a purely natural product, it is obtained by distillation from plants and other substances. Often the fragrances are very highly concentrated, and depending on their origin, it can even be purchased pure without being mixed with a carrier substance.
In contrast, perfume oil is a synthetically produced fragrance. Therefore a much wider range of fragrances is available than with essential oils. The fragrances can be used either solo, but can also be combined to a fragrance bouquet. For example, if you want to enhance your beard with gingerbread scent during the Christmas season, then this is a perfume oil.
A perfume oil is a very concentrated scent that has a much stronger effect than, for example, an eau de toilette. In fact, these oils are the basis of many perfumes. You can also use perfume oil in the desired scent as a perfume. It has some advantages compared to commercial perfume, for example the alcohol is missing. This irritates sensitive skin, and it also ensures that the perfume evaporates more quickly. Perfume oil, on the other hand, stays closer to the body and lasts longer.
Many fragrances, including essential oils, contain so-called allergens, which can trigger allergies in sensitive people. If you are one of them, it is best to avoid perfumes completely. With economical use of scented oils, however, these reactions are rather unlikely.
Contrary to many claims, synthetic fragrances are not better or worse than natural, essential oils. The latter trigger irritations or allergies just as often as their artificially produced counterparts.
How to choose the right essential oil
Which essential oils are out there? There are several: over 100 essential oils are extracted from the seeds, stems, flowers or other parts of a plant – or from the wood and bark of trees or the skin of fruits.
Peppermint oil smells particularly fresh and strong, while orange oil has a fruity sweet scent. Cedar wood brings a smoky-woody scent to your beard, rosewood smells much milder and flowery.
Which essential oils should I choose for my own beard oil? How does a good scent work?
Counter question: Which scent do you like best? Fruity with lemon or bergamot, sweet with vanilla. Tart, woody, leathery and earthy with tobacco and sandalwood.
One way of classifying fragrances is by differentiating between them according to the volatility or adherence of different essential oils. A distinction is made here between top/head, heart and base notes.
Top, Heart and Base
Top notes are fresh scents that volatilize quickly. These scents are perceived first in a mixture, but they also evaporate relatively quickly. These include above all citrus oils, eucalyptus oils and needle oils. These are often used generously in mixtures, because the scent evaporates relatively quickly.
Heart notes are mostly floral, soft notes. These scents stick and linger longer. They include lavender and palmarosa.
Base notes are heavy scents and stick and linger the longest. These include mainly essential oils extracted from woods, resins and roots, such as sandalwood and cedarwood – but patchouli and vanilla also belong to the base notes. Fragrances of the base note are used rather sparingly in blends, because they usually have a rather intense scent.
Head, heart and base notes should be contained in a mixture in a balanced proportion. Because fragrances of the top note evaporate fastest, they can be used relatively generously. On the other hand, the often fragrance-intensive oils of the base notes are used rather sparingly.
