What are top notes?
Top notes are the first impression of an aroma. They are usually light and sharp, and evaporate quickly, sometimes within 5 to 10 minutes. To help you pick you signature scent, and compliment each other see below details.
You'll be able to smell a top note right away. Some essential oils that are considered top notes are: citrus oils
Orange, Lemon, peppermint and eucalyptus.
What are middle notes?
The next aroma that you will experience is the middle note or the body of the oil/blend. These notes are the main part of the aroma and may last up to 2 hours. Our popular middle note essential oils are tea tree and geranium.
What are base notes?
The final note to an aroma is the base note. Sometimes referred to as the dry out note, fixative note, or bottom of the aroma. These will start to appear within a couple of hours of putting the oil on, and can sometimes last for up to a day. Our classic base note is Frankincense. The King of essential oils.
Every aroma combination or single essential oil has elements of all three notes (top, middle, and base). A particular oil may be classified as a top note, but will still contain some characteristics of the other two, all working together in harmony. Hopefully this will help you blend some amazing scent magic to suit your mood and enhance your health too!
