Fragrance Notes

How exactly is a perfume made? A perfume is composed of something called “notes”. These notes are then divided into different note categories based on how long the scent stays on your skin. 

  • The top note, often a light fresh scent, is the first you smell. It lasts for 10-15 minutes before the heart note takes over. 
  • The heart note lasts for 2-4 hours, blending with your own body scent and thus determining how a certain perfume smells on you. 
  • The base note appears and remains the longest on your skin. It actually lasts for at least six hours and is often a sweet and heavy scent.
