Fine Fragrances: Top, Middle, and Base Notes

Ever wonder why fine fragrances smell so complex? It’s because their fragrances are built upon 3 layers called, top, middle, and base notes.  These names refer to the precise time frame you will experience the notes during the fragrance application.

1.) Top Notes-  Are generally the lightest of all the notes, and are the first to fade. They are recognized immediately upon application of the fragrance.
2.) Middle Notes-  Are released once the top notes evaporate. The middle notes are the heart of the fragrance, and are the last to fade.
3.) Base Notes-  Are the final notes that are left long after the top notes have evaporated.  They mingle with the middle/heart notes to create the full-bodied experience we’ve come to love about fine fragrances.

As a licensed Esthetician I specialize in the benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy.  Aside from curating beauty, fashion and home styling for my clients, my husband and I have a Grooming, Bath, and Home product line called, Perry and Co.  As the company’s Creative Director, I am the nose for each one of our signature blends.  Together, we hand create candles, fine home fragrances, as well as body and hair butters made with pure essential oils which create these amazing, everlasting scent blends.

They are vegan, organic, and the butters are hydrating, yet never leave a greasy feel! Truly to die for! I PROMISE!!
