Q: What is a fragrance note?
A: Drawing upon a music metaphor, home and fine fragrances are made up of top, mid and bottom notes. A finished fragrance is a carefully constructed composition that unfolds over time, first releasing top notes followed by the deeper middle notes, leaving the base notes to emerge as the final step. Detailed knowledge of how particular fragrance notes evaporate is required to make a full, round and complete fragrance.
