Fragrance notes are descriptors of scents that can be sensed upon the application of a perfume. There are 3 types of notes:-

  • Top notes: These are the first scent impression of a fragrance once applied. They are lighter, more volatile aromas that evaporate readily. It usually lasts between 5-25 minutes.
  • Middle notes make up the body of the blend. They may be evident from the start, To experience middle notes you have to wait around 15-30 minutes.They are the notes that classify the fragrance family (floral, oriental, chypre, etc).
  • Base Notes are those with the greatest molecular weight. They last the longest.Common base notes include oakmoss, patchouli, woods, musk and vanilla.

Your skin type is an important factor and will give an idea about how long a fragrance will last. Another factor is the PH levels of your skin will decide how will fragrance notes will react.

The amount of PH levels (amount of acidity in our skin) will determine how each ingredient in a fragrance will react. Generally people with dry skin will hold a fragrance for a shorter interval as comparred to people with oily skin. The reason is that the oily skin has a moisture to soak and hold the fragrance.

Based on our experience if you will layer up the fragrance with a bath and shower gel, the fragrance will last for longer intervals. Another tip is if you spray on the sensitive areas of the body like back of the ear or neck it may last longer. You can also try to spray low on the body for long lasting effect.

The notes of a fragrance are determined in part by when it’s meant to be worn and who it’s designed for. For example, prominent animalicnotes, such as musk, as well as dark fruits, such as black cherry orplum, appear in evening fragrances for their sensuality and the waythey smell on a smoking jacket. Greens and citruses are fresh andinvigorating, better suited to daytime wear.Your personality and preferences also play a role in that, likepeople, fragrances can be traditional or unique; youthful or mature;bubbly and playful or smooth and mellow. Pay attention to thesedescriptors to see if a fragrance sounds like it’s your style.
