Knowing how to select a fragrance for yourself or selecting a fragrance for someone else isn't always easy, but I can help guide you. It�??s so useful to understand what makes each scent different, and how to identify the top, middle, and key/base notes that come together to create a fragrance. Keep reading to learn more about fragrance notes, and how knowing your scents can help you make the righ selection. Top notes Top notes are fresh and light and are typically the scent that you notice first. They have an immediate effect on your sense of smell, but will fade throughout the day. As the top note fades, the key/base and bottom notes will begin to take centre stage. Top notes can feature scents like basil, bergamot, lemon, orange, tea tree oil and grapefruit. You can find many of these fresh and citrusy scents in fragrances like Rare Gold. Middle Notes Middle notes make up the majority of a fragrance blend, they are warm and balancing, and are added to complement the key/base notes. As the top note begins to fade, the middle note will start to shine. Middle notes are chosen for their ability to work in harmony with the key/base and top notes and could include scents like lavender, black pepper, pine, geranium, rosemary and juniper. Wild blue lavender is what gives our popular men�??s fragrance, Wild Country, it�??s intoxicating and lasting scent. Key/Base notes Key/base notes are the heart and soul of a fragrance. Most perfumes are built upon the key/base notes, which can feature a single scent or a blend of different oils. Key/base notes are long-lasting and help to boost the staying power of the top and middle notes. Some examples of key/base notes used in Avon Fragrances are sandalwood, rose, vetiver, patchouli, jasmine and cedarwood. You can find these scents in a range of different fragrances from Rare Amethyst to Imari Elixir. Top, middle, and key/base notes come together to make up a unique and enticing fragrance�??and each fragrance blend belongs to a specific fragrance family. There�??s a lot of individuality involved with how a scent reacts to each person and how each person experiences scents.
