Most of people take their nose for granted.

Without doubt, the sense of smell is one of the most important sense in human body.

Also, your sense of smell is directly associated with poor memory.

As a matter of fact, without the sense of smell, even our memories become much poorer.

When it comes to the smell, perfume is the first thing that comes to the mind.

Enjoying perfume is only one facet of being fragrance obsessed.

After all, wearing a beautiful perfume is such a great adventure. 

The perfume you wear has the power to make you feel energetic, elegant and special.  

The right fragrance can indulge you into your fantasies and rekindle the romantic-self within you.

However, wrong perfume or fragrance can make you feel dizzy or worse, can harm your skin thanks to the toxic compounds used in the formation of that perfume.

Hence, buying your signature fragrance is not easy task.

Especially, when you’re browsing through perfume websites or standing in front of a perfume counter – in both cases, it’s tough to find your signature fragrance easily.

How do you choose your signature fragrance?

Where do you start?

What do you smell?

If you understand the true essence of your persona, then choosing the right perfume or fragrance is easy.

Focus on smelling different fragrances and see their effect on your nose and overall mood.

Idea is to find out what suits your style, sense of smell and your mood.

Now, it may seem too simplistic but it’s true that many of us really don’t understand what exactly will please us.

Hence, listen to your instincts.

That’s where your subconscious mind, your instincts will help you.  

The right fragrance will be like adrenaline rush or like butterflies in your stomach.

Keep in mind that while judging a fragrance, focus on the underlying notes of a fragrance/perfume.

Notes in perfumery are descriptors of fragrances that can be sensed upon the application of a perfume. 

Notes are separated into three classes:

Top/head notes

Perceived immediately upon 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 the product.

The scents of this note class are usually described as “fresh”, “assertive” or “sharp”.

The compounds that contribute to top notes are strong in scent, very volatile, and evaporate quickly.

Although not as saliently perceived, the heart and base-notes contribute much to the scent in the top notes.

Citrus and ginger scents are common top notes.

Middle/heart notes

They are also called the “heart notes”.

The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to when the top notes dissipate.

The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and emerge in the middle of the perfume’s dispersion process.

They serve to mask the often-unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time.

Not surprisingly, the scent of middle note compounds is usually more mellow and “rounded”. Scents from this note class appear anywhere from twenty minutes to one hour after the application of a perfume.

Lavender and rose scents are typical middle notes.

Base 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 are often the fixatives used to hold and boost the strength of the lighter top and middle notes.

Consisting of large, heavy molecules that evaporate slowly, compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after the application of the perfume or during the period of perfume dry-down.

Some base notes can still be detectable in excess of twenty-four hours after application, particularly the animalic and musk notes.

The presence of one note may alter the perception of another—for instance, the presence of certain base or heart notes will alter the scent perceived when the top notes are strongest, and likewise the scent of base notes in the dry-down will often be altered depending on the smells of the heart notes.

To understand how notes function in a perfume blend, think of them in terms of which scent you smell first.

Those are the top notes.

Let a bit of time pass, and a secondary scent appears. These are the mid or middle notes.

And finally, after the mid notes seem to settle, a final scent emerges.

These are the base notes, or a mix of the base and mid notes that remain as your main scent.

The basic science behind it is the size of the molecules and the rate at which they evaporate. The faster they evaporate, the quicker we can smell them.

For example, a romantic perfume notes should set the mood for a romantic day or night.

After all, your perfume must make you feel attractive and sexy.
