I have never been a fan of deodorants or body sprays, It was always either body splashes or perfumes. My obsessions for perfumes is kind of increasing day by day. Im slowly (Very Slowly) trying to add more perfumes to my collection. There is something about them the artistic bottles, all the different Fragrance to suit each mood. So I got down to do my research and thought it would be cool to share some of the information I was able to collect with you all.

notes: The scents you smell immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a
perfume. Also called the head notes.
notes: The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become
more pleasant with time. They are also called the heart notes.
notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application.
