You will still notice several different bottles sizes and varying prices for each fragrance while visiting the nearby fragrance stores. Not only that, others are branded as ‘perfume’ and a handful of ‘colognes,’ as there is always a large price gap. ‘Cologne’ is a rather diluted ‘perfume’ version.
Perfume production was once an art performed by large segments of the population. Almost every woman knew how to manufacture their own perfume and they didn’t have to go to a store to get the fragrance they needed. Sadly, something has changed over the last few decades and the practice of perfumery has almost vanished.
