The Best Notes for Perfumes This Season

It is not enough to look good, it is also necessary to smell good. In fact, it is part of the first impression we give to others and the treatment we receive could depend on it, regardless of the plane we are talking about.

People who smell bad are generally associated with a lack of hygiene and therefore are discriminated against, left in the background and not taken seriously. For a job or for any other matter.

Hence the importance of good hygiene, in order not to give off bad odors that will repel the people around us and cause a bad impression. However, sometimes good hygiene is not enough. Those whose body pH is too acidic tend to give off a very strong characteristic odor when they perspire. In that case, what can you do?

An excellent strategy is the use of perfume. This is a product, usually liquid, that is applied to the body and that allows the person to give off a good smell, a pleasant one that makes them enjoy its presence.

Of course, there are many types of perfumes. Since we are all different, there will be some that go better with our personality, while others will seem too strong or even smell bad.

Something that will help you makes a good choice when buying a perfume is to know the notes that make it up. But what is a note? It may be that the term has relationships with music. But, in this case, it is not so.

In this post you will not only know what a note is, in terms of perfumery, but you will also know which the ones that are in trend this season are. Let’s see it.

Instructions

The notes of a perfume are related to the olfactory characteristics or marks that can be perceived in the aroma, which can be present from the first moment it is applied until the smell disappears completely.

In some cases, the notes describe the type of scent. But, in others, it is part of a combination, where its presence is very subtle and even almost imperceptible. They are the ones that are in charge of defining a fragrance, depending on the note in which they are found.

In the olfactory pyramid, the notes are present as follows:

  1. Release Notes: These are present at startup. When a fragrance is released, the first notes we perceive are the top notes. They usually only last a few minutes and then fade or fade. They are the ones that open the way for the notes that we will perceive later. In turn, they are the ones in charge of locating a perfume in a certain group of fragrances.
  2. The heart notes: these have a greater weight in the perfume, since they can last for hours. At the same time, they are mixed with the base notes to give the aroma of the perfume greater density and so that it can be perceived more clearly.
  3. Those in the background: although it is true that they cannot be appreciated at first, they are the longest and those that serve as the basis for the aroma. Sometimes they can be noticed when you inhale deeply and they last the longest.

In fact, they can remain impregnated on the skin for a whole day, while, on fabrics, the fragrance lasts for several days.

Now that you are more familiar with what a perfume note is, you need to know what the best notes are for this season.

What do you need

For this season, the notes that are in trend are those that allow the perfume to have certain characteristics, such as freshness, softness and lightness. Some of them are the following:

  • Tonka bean
  •  Jasmine.
  • Berries.
  •  Tuberoses.
  • Votive.
  • Leather.
  •  roses
  • Vanilla.
  • Ginger.
  •  Orange-blossom.
  • Citron.
  • Orange-tree.
  • Chocolates.
  • Kiwi.
  • Pink pepper.
  • watermelons
  • Violets.
  • Sandalwood.
  • Moss.
  • Cedar.
  • Peonies.
  • Teak wood.

Of course, we must remember that a perfume is the result of the combination of three notes, which, in turn, are made up of more than one fragrance. That is, a note can be composed of two or three fragrances, such as jasmine, grapefruit and cinnamon.

Although this is a list of the notes that are most in trend for this season, among the most talked about are the great classics: jasmine, roses and vanilla. Aromas that create an olfactory memory and that transport us to specific dates, places and faces.

In the case of notes for men’s perfumes, the best for this season are those of wood, jasmine, lavender and mandarin. Therefore, if you want to keep up with fashion, in terms of perfumery, you cannot stop buying perfumes that are made up of these notes.

But, in addition to what has been said so far, what else should you know about notes for perfumes? Keeping the following in mind will allow you to make a good choice.

Tips

It is important that you keep in mind that each note is grouped into an olfactory family. There are several ways to do it. But, this time, I will show you two ways to do it. According to Michael Edwards’ wheel:

  • The first section is for fresh notes. In it are the aromas of citrus, water, fruit and herbs. However, the fruity note blends into the next section.
  • The second section. It is composed of a wide range of floral aromas, which give continuity to the next part of the circumference.
  • In the third section are the soft, full and wooden oriental ones and, in turn, they pass to the next section of the wheel.
  • Finally, in the fourth section we find the notes of wood, moss, dry wood, as well as aromatic herbs. These notes are integrated with the first section to give continuity to the wheel and repeat the cycle.

According to the French perfume committee

The notes are grouped into 7 categories, which are the following:

  • Woody: These notes are very intense and deep.
  • Chipper: This category was created in 1917 but has undergone an evolution and has been combined with other notes and fragrances.
  • Citrus: Notes of lemon, orange, tangerine, as well as any other citrus, falls into this category. All of them are responsible for providing freshness to the aromas in which they are included.
  • Leather: it has its own smell and is very strong. For this reason, these notes are used very subtly so that, due to their intensity, they do not distort the good aroma of the perfume.
  • Floral: as its name indicates, in this category are all those notes that are related to flowers and can be used alone, but also combined with other notes.
  • Forger: this category is related to nature and the humidity of the forests. In fact, its name is a French word meaning fern.
