The 3 notes in fragrances

Fragrances are often used to enhance our body smell. When mixed with the pheromones of our own body, the fragrance evolves into a smell that is uniquely ours, despite retaining their signature scent.

When fragrances are applied to our skin, their scent reveals itself slowly from from the top notes to the middle notes, and finally, to the base notes.

The top notes of the fragrance are the strongest, and it is the first impression of the scent you get after spraying it from the bottle.

The smell of top notes can be rather intense and sometimes, overwhelming to those with a strong nose. But fear not, top notes will usually last from 15 to 30 minutes. After that, the smell will die down and be replaced by the middle notes

The Dreamer by Versace (pronounced Ver-sah-chee), a fragrance for men, is well known for its extremely intense iris top notes that can be unbearable for many, but transforms gracefully to its middle notes and base notes after a while

The middle notes (also known as heart notes) come after the top notes. The reason why they are called heart notes is because they make up the 'body' of the scent and fragrances are classified into floral, oriental, woody, marine or etc. based on the middle notes.

Most middle notes usually last for 2 to 4 hours, followed by the base notes.

Flight of Fancy by Anna Sui (pronounced annuh swee), a fragrance for women, is classified as an oriental floral fragrance with middle notes of star magnolia, rose blossom, and purple rain freesia

The base notes are the dry down of the fragrance, and it is the fragrance that will stick close to your skin till the end of the day or till you wash it off. 

Le Male (pronounceh le mahl) by Jean Paul Gaultier (pronounced zhon paul go-tee-ay) is a fragrance for men with base notes of sandalwood, vanilla, tonka beans, amber, and cedar that is well known for its strong projectivity and lasting power

So next time I will be posting about the differences between parfum, eau de parfum, eau de toilette, and eau de cologne.

Thanks for reading :)
