All About: Abundance Parfum

Fragrance conjures powerful reactions and memories. Senegence offers 3 different Abundance Parfums and they were created with that and much more in mind. Amazingly, they are also beneficial for your body.

These modern, refreshing parfums contain our proprietary SenePlex Complex so are anti-ageing! Enjoy a fragrant, lasting impression while improving your skin even more deeply.

You can buy them individually as a spray or as a trio of travel sized products in rollerball form. Each parfum is packaged in a beautiful glass bottle with a fine mist spray atomizer and custom-coloured floral artwork To apply, simply mist fragrance on insides of wrists, neck, and d├ęcolletage for beautiful, long-lasting scent. Repeat throughout the day as needed. Make sure you do not rub wrists together, as this crushes the scent layers. Also, a little goes a long way so spray lightly to avoid overpowering scents.

As Abundance Parfums mature on your skin, the scents grow richer and more memorable. By including S…

Fragrance Classification

Fragrances can be classified into several families by the themes of the fragrances. Here are just a few:
Floral: fragrances that are dominated by the scent of one or more types of flowers.

Fresh or Green: light, fresh character of botanical or citrus notes often combined with more feminine scents (flowers and fruits).

Fruity: an old fragrance family that until recently consisted mainly of "freshening" eau de colognes due to the low tenacity of fruit scents. Development of newer fragrance compounds has allowed for the creation of fruit-forward fragrances.

Chypre: fragrances made of sandalwood, bergamot, oak, patchouli and labdanum.

Orientals or Ambers: a large fragrance class featuring the scents of vanilla and animal scents together with flowers and woods. Scents bring to mind images of the Far East.

Gourmand: scents with edible or dessert-like qualities. These often contain notes like vanilla and tonka bean, as well as synthetic components designed to resemble food flavors.

Fragrance Strength Hierarchy

Women’s fine fragrances are traditionally manufactured as Eau de Parfum or Eau de Toilette strength. Parfums should be applied at the pulse points (neck, wrists, behind ears, etc.). The heat of the body at these points will assure a well-balanced fragrance application.

Parfum 
Parfum is the strongest concentrated form of fragrance. It provides a pure scent experience and lasts many hours, or all day, after being applied. As such, this form of fragrance is the most valuable and sought after in the marketplace.

Eau de Parfum
Eau de Parfum is found in many of the fine fragrance collections; it assures a long-lasting application, although it is not as concentrated or as long-lasting as Parfum. It should be smoothed or sprayed, just before dressing, all over the body from the feet up.

Eau de Toilette
Eau de Toilette is a much more diluted form of Parfum and even Eau de Parfum. Eau de Toilette should be used as the base upon which to lay a foundation of scent, and is so diluted that you can sp…

Perfume and Parfum Differences

When I first saw the name of Senegence's scent, I thought for sure they had spelt perfume wrong, so I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it was actually spelt correctly! We don't sell perfume, we sell parfume. So...what's the difference?

Parfum is the most expensive and the strongest kind of scent. The upfront cost can be a little expensive but this is because it's a pure form of perfume, that is undiluted, so the scent is much stronger, lasts longer and is of a higher quality.

To be classified as a parfum, the scent must contain at least 8 to 15 percent of fragrance or essential oils. The perfume's strength comes from a percentage of scent elements of between 15 and 30. The average concentration is 15 percent for eau de parfum and 20 percent for perfume.

Nail Structure

The nail unit as a whole is composed of three main parts: the nail plate, nail bed and nail matrix. The nail plate is a hard keratin structure that protects the end of the finger. The condition and appearance of the nail plate is well recognised as being an indicator of the overall health.

Nail cells are produced in the matrix (or nail root) and nourished from the underlying nail bed until the nail plate leaves the end of the finger. This “free” nail plate is the most challenged and exposed part of the nail unit. Unfortunately, it is also most often in the greatest need of cosmetic attention as it is prone to breakage and splitting.

The nail plate is comprised of flattened corneocyte cells and has three distinct layers. The dorsal (uppermost) layer is 2-3 cell layers thick and contains the oldest, most damaged cells. The intermediate layer makes up about 3/4 of the nail material and the ventral (lower) region is 1-2 cells thick and contains the youngest, softest cells.

The keratin nai…
