READ ANY PERFUME: THE OLFACTORY PYRAMID
As magic and chemistry comes to hold one another, the spark of fragrance evolves from dozens of ingredients beautifully orchestrated to form an illusion of perfection. With three levels of presentation, every fragrance is discovered at every layer poising its vitality and sillages. Revealing of every personality through its jurisdiction is often torn at different evaporation rates unmasking facets of various scents that keep the harmony in place. The strata of ingredients and their time appearance and persistence is calculated and placed in an olfactory pyramid that builds the evolution and design of every perfume.
To describe your favourite scent that intoxicates you and to read a perfume on the cabinet, the olfactory pyramid going the top notes to the base notes can enlighten our knowledge on perfumery and perception of odours.
TOP NOTE/HEAD NOTE
The first scent that enters your sensory at the first spray is the top note ingredients, often light to the nose and most volatile of all evaporating fast, setting up the base for the flight of fragrances that follow. Mostly bright of citrusy scents like lemon, bergamot, mandarin, aromatic notes of ginger, eucalyptus or lavender, or even extracts of essential oil herbs like thyme, rosemary, and sage, from green to azonic, the top layer often convolutes into a deeper core that stay for a longer time, and has to be given time to distinguish the identity while choosing any perfume!
MIDDLE NOTE/HEART NOTE
Forming the heart essence and intensity core of every perfume, this would be the scent that you choose carefully being the one that stays for a longer period joining hands with the former note, and slightly dominating it. The heart notes can range from being fruity of peach, strawberry, or raspberry to being floral of rose, jasmine, or lily. This epicentre can be heavily spiced up with cardamom, cloves, pepper, and cinnamon making the odour elaborates in harmony. Wriggling the signature of the perfume, this is an olfactory responsive arena jotting down the value and character of a scent in general.
BASE NOTE/DRY-DOWN NOTE
Good things stay, persistent reaching your roots and deeply flurried into your existence, just as how the base notes contribute to any elixir of fragrance. Captivating and generously poured in to the chemical mixture, these ingredients often remain intact for as long as days, lingering around the corner. From balms and woody scents to moss for Chypre origins, from amber to vanilla, from oaky scents of musk to patchouli, from caramel and coffee to cocoa and leather, the base notes are here to pave a way into deep caskets! Fidelity it offers, making the fragrance stay longer more than the value added to the potion.
IS THAT IT?
Well, though the perfumery is a vast sea of interest and passionate peculiarities, a little insight into these tiny bottles of magic on your dressing table can offer you stakes at your next purchase. You and I, we all have different skin compositions, and perfumes act differently on everyone, and slight variations make it unique an accessory!
When the perfume moulds you, you mould your fragrance too!
