ABOUT FRAGRANCE NOTES

Notes in perfumery are descriptors of scents.

Music and fragrance speak the same language: they’re composed of notes.Just like a chord in music, a perfume contains a top note, a middle and base note.

Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. The job of the base notes is to hold and boost the strength of the top and middle notes.
Common base notes include cedarwood, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, oakmoss or vanilla.
