Fra­grance wa­ters are the scent equiv­a­lent of no-makeup makeup

ELLE (Australia) - - Welleness -

FUN FACT: eau de par­fum means “per­fumed wa­ter” in French, but it’s been sev­eral cen­turies since the trans­la­tion car­ried much ac­cu­racy. Most fra­grances are al­co­hol-based, which en­hances their longevity but can be tricky for those with al­ler­gies or sen­si­tive skin. Wa­ter-based fra­grances are lighter, airier it­er­a­tions per­fect for th­ese warm sum­mer months, or try an al­co­hol-free pow­der scented with es­sen­tial oils.
