FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions
about perfume general
- Why oil-based perfumes?
An important advantage is that oil-based perfumes do not dehydrate you skin, and therefore are very suitable and much less irritating for dry skin.
The oil based fragrance moisturizes the skin, but also ensures that the scent remains longer. Oil based perfumes are known as "skin scents". Through body temperature, the oil is gradually heated which enhances the scent.
Oil-based perfumes are sold in small containers, because they have a much higher concentration of the irresistible DERQX scent.
DERQX perfume is an oriental fragrance and is oil based.
- What differerentiates perfume from eau de toilette or aftershave?
Perfume is a mixture of various aromatic substances in a solvent. Usually, this solvent is alcohol, however DERQX uses oil.
Perfume is the highest concentration of any scent. It contains the highest percentage of fragrance ingredients, typically 20-40%. Because of this reason, a few drops are sufficient to last the entire day.
Eau de toilette contains less fragrance ingredients than perfume. Eau de toilette contains about 5-10% fragrance ingredients and is the most widely sold. It is also significantly cheaper than perfume. Eau de toilette was originally intended to be a refreshing body splash and therefor lasts shorter than perfume. Eau de toilette often need a re-boost during the day and needs to be re-applied to enhance the scent. Eau de toilette is usually sold in packs of 50-100ml.
Aftershave contains the lowest percentage of fragrance ingredients, typically 2-4%. Aftershave obviously is only meant for men and is sold in packs of 100-200ml.
DERQX "The power of passion" is a perfume and is sold in a 3ml. container.
about DERQX perfumes
- How and where do I apply DERQX?
Contrary to the alcohol-based perfumes DERQX perfume is not applied with an atomizer or spray.
DERQX perfume is applied to the forearm, and then massaged gently into the skin for best results. At the bottom of the cap is the glass rod applicator that is used to apply the perfume onto your skin. This guarantees the correct dose of perfume. The perfume is then massaged into the skin of your forearm by crossing your both arms and rubbing on each other. Within a few seconds you will smell the irrestable fragrance.
- How long does a bottle last?
The life span of a bottle very much dependent on the individual who uses DERQX. We cannot give you a precise answer however we often say: “it lasts as long as a good bottle of Whiskey. You can enjoy it a very long time, but you can also empty it in a few evenings”
Do you use it every day or just on special occasions? DERQX is very economical to use - You need only a single drop each time you use it.
A vial DERQX contains 3ml. This equals about 100 small drops. Enough for 100 applications or 100 days if you use it every day.
- Where does DERQX originate?
DERQX originates from the Middle East. The Arabs in this region have been experts in the manufacture of oil-based perfumes for thousands of years. DERQX is a very special blend of a number of ingredients, however some of these are: Musk (this comes from the Musk Deer who roam the Himalayas and Tibet. Musk was originally extracted from the abdominal gland in the Bronze Age in the region.) Incense (Extracted from a thicket or bush after stripping the bark – these grow in Somalia and southern Arabia) Myrrh (Myrrh is a sap that secretes through the bark of a ‘Commiphora Myrrha’ tree that grows in Somalia, Yemen, Eritrea and Ethopia. Myrrh creates the special balsamic scent in DERQX). But the exact recipe and other ingredients remain a secret, of course.
- Is perfume actually meant for men?
In our Western world it is a common believe that perfume is made for and used only by women. "Men do not use perfume" has often been claimed.
But why not? A perfume fragrance has a much higher concentration than After Shave or Eau de Toilette but with the advantage that you need far less to create an irresistible scent. Convenient, right? And men of course can also smell irresistible?
YES, perfume is also made for men.
