KNOW YOUR PERFUME – LOVE YOUR PERFUME
The scents that are perceived immediately after application of your perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They make the 1st impression of a perfume to people and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Also called the head notes.
The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to when the top notes disappear(after 5 – 30 mins from 1st application) . The middle notes is the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask/cover up the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. They are also called the “heart notes”.
The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application.
