COLOGNE SCENT TYPES AND FRAGRANCE NOTES EXPLAINED

What Are Perfume Notes?

Let’s refer to the perfume notes as ‘ingredients’ to understand the structure of a fragrance. There is a range of notes that famous luxury brands and perfumers experiment with. They create any scent you like, including coffee, baby powder, and even freshly-cut grass. Although there are no restrictions on the number of notes that can be used to create a fragrance, all scents (even the most basic) must contain at least three notes. The uniqueness of each scent is created by the individual arrangement of these notes, also known as the fragrance pyramid.

Top Notes:

The top notes are apparent the moment you spray the perfume on a card or onto your skin which will be your first impression of the fragrance. It usually contains bold and fresh notes from citrus, fresh herb, or fruit families. They quickly evaporate and last for about 10-15 minutes once you inhale. Of course, they don’t stay around, but they do give you the ‘love-at-first spray’ feeling that sets the tone for everything to come.

Typical top notes: Citrus element, light fruits, fresh herbs

You can find such prominent notes in the following perfumes,

  1. Kdj Inspired – Unisex (0370C) having similar notes of Tom Ford’s Mandarino Di Amalfi.

Top notes: Lemon, Grapefruit and Black Currant 

  1. Kdj Inspired – Women’s (0741S) having similar notes of Jo Malone’s Grapefriut. 

Top notes: Grapefruit and Tangerine

  1. Kdj Inspired – Womens 069C having similar notes of Marc Jacob’s Daisy.

Top notes: Wild Berries and Thyme

Heart Notes

The heart notes, or middle notes, emerge once the top notes have faded. These notes are typically floral and full-bodied. They are more lasting than the top notes but less than the base notes. These notes are the heart of the fragrance, and your catchy chorus you can’t stop singing!

Typical heart notes: Floral notes apart from spring flowers and fruity notes except watery and juicy fruits.

You can find such prominent notes in the following perfumes,

  1. Kdj Inspired – Women’s 159C having similar notes of Dior’s Miss Dior.

Middle notes: Centefolia Rose and Egyptian Jasmine

  1. Kdj Inspired – Women’s 013C having similar notes of Mugler’s Angel

Middle notes: Red berries, Plum and Peach

Base Notes

The base (or bottom) notes of a fragrance are what remain after it has settled for about an hour. These notes have a long-lasting staying power. You may find that many fragrances use the same base notes. This is because there are fewer notes that can be used on the skin to last hours. These notes can double up to increase top and heart notes’ staying power and complexity or a zesty scent with a woody base.

Typical base notes: Amber, sandal and cedar, oakmoss, patchouli

You can find such prominent notes in the following perfumes,

  1. Kdj Inspired – Men’s (0707S) having similar notes of Prada’s Amber

Base notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Patchouli

  1. Kdj Inspired – Men’s 025C having similar notes of Creed’s Aventus.

Base notes: Amber, Cedarwood, Oakmoss
