Indulging in a luxury perfume is one of the finest pleasures in life. A scent can evoke memories, alter moods and express your personality. When you spray on a ‘La Vie Est Belle’ from Lancôme or any other luxury perfume, you are essentially wearing an olfactory masterpiece, crafted with a variety of fragrance notes. Understanding these notes is key to finding your signature scent. Let’s dive deeper into the world of luxury fragrance notes and explore some of the typical scents that define the best ladies perfumes.
Here we have explained the basic and popular fragrance notes, namely the top, heart or middle, and the base notes.
1. Top Notes: The first impression of a perfume, top notes are usually light and fresh. Luxury perfumes often feature vanilla, citrus fruits, and light floral scents in their top notes. For example, Lancôme’s ‘Miracle’ features fruity top notes of lychee and freesia.
2. Heart/Middle Notes: These are the notes that define the character of the perfume. They start to unfold minutes after the top notes dissipate. Common middle notes in luxury perfumes include rose, lavender, and patchouli. ‘Tresor’ by Lancôme features a heart of rose, peach and apricot blossom.
3. Base Notes: These are the final notes that appear once the top notes have completely evaporated. They are often rich and deep, featuring scents like musk, amber, and sandalwood. The base notes of ‘La Vie Est Belle’ include vanilla, praline and patchouli.
