The mysterious world of fragrance revolves around the magic of olfactory notes. At GEODORA, we firmly believe that each fragrance tells a unique story, shaped by top, middle and base notes. If you’d like to hear from us about the creation of a perfume and the secrets behind each bottle, this article is for you. Let’s dive into the fascinating world of perfumery!
1. Top notes: First impressions
Top notes, also known as opening notes, are the first to be felt when a fragrance is sprayed. They are often fresh, lively and volatile. Thanks to their lightness, they are immediately seductive, but usually last only a few minutes to an hour. At GEODORA, we meticulously select our raw materials to create radiant departures that feature natural ingredients. Citrus fruits, such as mandarin, orange, grapefruit, bigarade… Or fresh spices such as ginger, pink berry, coriander, elemi…
2. Heart notes: The soul of the fragrance
Once the top notes have disappeared, it’s time for the heart notes. They give each GEODORA fragrance its distinctive identity. They generally last several hours on the skin. These notes are often floral, fruity or spicy, like rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang, lavender, cinnamon and many others. They mediate between the light top notes and the deep base notes.
3. Background notes: Sustainable footprint
Base notes are those that last the longest on the skin, often more than a day. These deep notes, such as musk, vanilla or sandalwood, anchor and extend the fragrance’s longevity. At GEODORA, we pay particular attention to these notes, as they are the ones that bring the most sensuality and remain on the skin when all the others have dissipated…
The science and art behind every GEODORA bottle
Creating a perfume is a delicate balance between science and art. Perfumers, often referred to as “noses”, need an in-depth knowledge of chemistry to understand the interactions between different ingredients, but beyond science, it’s art, intuition and passion that guide the creation of a fragrance.
At GEODORA, we combine this balance with love, selecting the finest raw materials to offer our customers an unforgettable olfactory experience. Each fragrance is a masterpiece, designed to evoke memories, emotions and dreams.
The world of perfumery is vast and fascinating. By understanding the importance of top, middle and base notes, you can not only better choose your favorite GEODORA fragrance, but also appreciate the story it tells. After all, every fragrance is a journey, and we’re delighted to accompany you on this olfactory adventure.
