I prefer to think of it as: Women spend large amounts of money buying
Chanel, but finally succumb to buying cheap cologne instead.

Note that perfum is made up of 20% to 40% oil and the rest is an essence.

Note also that cologne is only 3% to 9% oil and the rest is essence and

Men don't have the desire to 'stink' as long as nor as pretty as women,
thus they use cologne. It is also cheaper because it doesn't contain the
high percentage of oils.

The oil content of perfum makes the fragrance last longer than
that of cologne.
