Well first off, fragrance products are made out of animal/plant based aromatic compounds/esters which then dissolve in a solution of water and alcohol. The amount of "perfume oil" or "essential oil/fragrance" is the determining factor between an eau de toilette and an eau de parfum! as well as the price difference :p (edt being cheaper than edp)
Eau de Parfum is the most concentrated, meaning more $$$ from you (consumers), but it tends to last a lot longer. (around 15-30 percent concentrated)
Eau de toilette is like the cheap version, usually around 8-10 percent concentrated, and doesn't last very long.
I had NO IDEA about any of this until a while ago, and I thought it was good information to know when searching for your new signature scent!
Hopefully this has helped someone else out :)

When I was a kid, my mom only bought EDP or pure perfume because it last longer and I am the same. I prefer to buy EDP over EDT.
For summer though EDT is nicer because it isn't as heavy.

A lot of people say they are allergic to perfume, but in most cases they are allergic to the base that holds the fragrance in the perfume. Unfortunately most cheaper perfumes like Avon, use an oil that causes a reaction to those who have allergies. Try the better quality perfumes like Estee Lauder and those types. You mainly only need one or two signature fragrances any way and the mosre expensive ones don't seem to go rancid like the cheaper ones.
