Perfumes are composed of three notes: notes of the head (top notes), notes of the heart (middle notes), and notes of depth (base notes).
The top notes are the first notes you perceive, the most volatile and evaporate the fastest, hence the name ‘notes of the head’.
The middle note, or heart note, is the essence of the perfume. It’s a stronger scent that emerges as the perfume warms on the skin.
The base note, the strongest and richest fragrance, this surfaces and usually lasts for several hours. Each of the notes creates its own scent, yet blends with the others to create a fragrance.
The different notes of a perfume all blend to create an emotion and create harmony. Perfume notes that are not well balanced are not well accepted…
