Did you know that fragrances contain three different notes? Each note brings a different layer to the fragrance.
The three notes are the top, middle, and base notes.
The top note is the first that you smell and it is what grabs your attention and pulls you into the scent.
The middle note gives the overall fragrance its scent and is the body of the fragrance.
The base note is the scent that lingers and brings depth to the fragrance.
The potency of each note depends on the amount of oils of a particular scent that are part of the fragrance. This is why some fragrances are stronger and others are lighter. The different notes is why some fragrances smell different when you first smell them compared to after the smell has lingered awhile.
