Each “note” in a perfume or cologne is unique. These notes determine the overall smell of the perfume. These notes are made up of three layers: base, top, and middle or heart notes, and they all combine to create a particular scent. For instance, some fragrances with distinct scent notes, like rose, gardenia, or geranium, would be categorized as floral. Others could be a little fruitier, with hints of apple or citrus. Spicy notes like star anise or even cinnamon can be found in exotic perfumes.
Men’s Perfumes also have notes.
For men, musky scents have more masculine and heavier notes, while many prefer pine and leathery-based notes. Before buying, consider the type of notes that resonates with your personality.
