Music and fragrance have a lot in common. They are both comprised of harmonies and multiple notes blended together to create a memorable experience. Sometimes sensual and always complex a fragrance like a symphony is made up of select notes used to capture the talented perfumer's vision.
A synthetic fragrance is an ingredient created by humans through a chemical transformation. The scents created could replicate a natural scent or they could be totally different to any profile found in nature.
A natural fragrance will contain essential oils. The fragrant ingredient extracted from fruits, plants, seeds or flowers. Like Orange, peppermint, rose or sandalwood. Natural fragrances can also contain ingredients that are naturally derived and extracted from the structure of the essential oils like D-limonene, the main component found in orange essential oil.
The top note is like experiencing a first glance – fleeting, enticing and exhilarating
The heart note is like the romance – deep, rich and character building
The base note like the long term relationship – comforting, soulful and enduring.
