Fragrance goes through three main stages, in which its intensity changes and different elements of its composition emerge. The stages of a fragrances are called top, mid and base notes.
- TOP NOTES: The top note is the first impression of a fragrance. And because of this, top notes are very important in the selling of a fragrance. Top Notes get your attention right away, make an impression. They are strong, but evaporate quickly. Common top notes: citrus, fruity notes, and green notes.
- MID NOTES: As top notes gradually fade away, a fragrance intensifies and becomes richer as the mid notes become apparent. Mid Notes appear 10-20 minutes after application and form the heart or body of a fragrance. They give a fragrance its overall character. Common mid notes: florals and spices.
- BASE NOTES: The base notes give the fragrance its foundation and lastingness, or what fragrance developers call tenacity. Base Notes are noticeable 15 minutes after application and the final scent to emerge from a fragrance. They bring depth and solidness as a fragrance fades. Common base notes: woods, musks, amber and vanilla.
