Your favorite flavor. What notes and chords does it consist of?

It is no secret that the aroma of almost any perfume consists of a certain composition, verified over the years. In fact, the composition of the fragrance is a mixture of natural and fragrant substances that make up its composition, a harmonious fusion of individual odors. They can be both animal (musk and beaver stream) and vegetable (flowers, fruits, resins) origin.

The main element of the composition is the notes. But not musical,and storing a certain shade of smell. For example, a rose note or a Jasmine note. In perfumery, notes determine the complexity and harmony of the composition, the General direction of the smell.

As in a piece of music, in perfumery, several notes create chords. First it is elementary, primary chords, then, after applying more notes, — complex, developed, representing the melody of the fragrance.

The composition of fragrant substances of the floral perfume or Cologne needs to be overlaid on an appropriate background. It should be in harmony with the smell of the composition, give it completeness, completeness, integrity. While a piece of music can be listened to, a perfume can be sniffed at. And if the fragrance has the name of one plant, it does not mean that it consists only of this fragrant substance.

So, ionon has the smell of violets, but it is too simple, and the smell is not complete without notes of other components: iris oil, benzyl acetate, geraniol, vanillin and many others. To create a composition with the smell of violets, you need 14 components. This complex structure of the fragrance is due to the different volatility of the individual ingredients of the composition — therefore, different smells are perceived by our body faster or slower.

To increase the smell resistance, fixatives or fixers are added to the composition: all kinds of resins and balms (benzoin resin, toluene balsam), synthetic and crystalline compounds (heliotropin, artificial musk).

The full development and disclosure of the smell of the fragrance is achieved by contact with the human skin, at body temperature.

Any fragrance has a structure consisting of three stages or phases:

— the opening notes of the composition (we feel them as soon as the fragrance begins to spread around);
— heart notes (we start to feel 30 minutes after applying perfume);
— the final or base notes (we can feel at the very end, the aroma is almost not felt by our sense of smell).

It is worth noting that we are often dissatisfied with the fact that spirits quickly “fade”. In fact, we just don’t always feel the final notes of the fragrance. Compared to the bright initial notes, they are calmer and muted. Sometimes barely perceptible to our sense of smell.

The top notes are usually citrus and fruit. This can be the smell of grapefruit or Mandarin, Apple or melon. Heart notes are mostly floral-rose, Lily of the valley, Mimosa, Jasmine. As the final notes, woody scents are used — the smell of cedar, sandalwood.

Try to smell your favorite flavor. It will play for you a great melody, woven from your favorite smells!
