Perfume makers know that multi-faceted fragrances last longer and delight the nose. If a certain perfume has only one scent, it will not have as much intrigue or appeal as if it combines several unusual scents. For instance, Jacomo Paris’ It’s Me for Her combines tangy, fruity and musky fragrances.
What many women don’t realize is that they can create their own multi-layered scents at home. By doing so, a lady can create the perfect fragrance to express her own unique spirit. To create more appealing and less overpowering combinations, think about each scent you create as containing three distinct smells, or notes as they are referred to by perfumers.
Bottom note. The first layer is the bottom note. It’s not the first scent that you notice in the mix, but it is the one that lingers the longest. This is the “body” of the perfume. Popular base scents include jasmine, vanilla, sandalwood and cinnamon. In Jacomo Paris’ It’s Me for Him, musky vanilla is the bottom note.
Heart note. Next comes the heart note, the second layer. Heart notes add a different dimension – perhaps soothing and warm, or unexpected and intriguing. The heart note doesn’t last as long as the bottom note; it comes to the nose briefly after application, following the initial burst of fragrance. As an example, in Leila Lou Perfume Oil, one heart note is pear blossom. Many perfumers think of the heart note as the healing, aromatheraputic aspect of a perfume. For example, bergamot is known to be a calming, refreshing fragrance that’s good for offsetting stress and depression.Read More »
