Basic Perfumes FAQs

Perfumes have three notes of fragrance: the top, middle and base. Top notes are the lightest of all notes which don’t make a lasting impression on you, as they evaporate quickly in about (5- 10 minutes). Middle notes or the heart of the perfume last about 10 to 60 minutes. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. They provide the lasting impression which lingers on skin for hours after the departure of the middle notes.
