Every perfume consists of 3 scent levels, or “notes” which support each other and create the overall scent. Essential oils, classified as either top, middle or base notes, give each perfume its own special character. Here are a few of the basic terms:
Top note: This is the scent you notice first, but it doesn’t last long because it evaporates quickest. Top notes are a small portion of the final blend and include fresh, light citrus scents using such oils as neroli, grapefruit, lemongrass and lemon.
Middle note: This links the base and top scents and determines the fragrance family. Middle notes include benzoin essential oils in this recipe.
Base note or fixative: This scent lasts the longest, adds fullness and carries the other scents. Derived from balsams, roots, resins and wood, bases include such oils as cedarwood and cypress and verbina and tend to be dark, heavy and sweet.
