Fragrance Descriptions
Ever wonder what those detailed fragrance descriptions actually mean?  What exactly is a top note, middle note and an accord?  Here are a few definitions that might be helpful.
 
What is a Top Note?
This is the part of the fragrance that is created to attract you.  It's the first impression when you smell the fragrance for the first time at the opening of the bottle.  The top note doesn't last long.
 
What is a Middle Note?
This is the heart of the fragrance.  The character and personality of the fragrance.  It follows the top note and brings the accord of the fragrance.  The accord being the part of a fragrance that makes it different from the other fragrances.  Usually made by a fine blend of several specific raw materials.
 
What is a Bottom Note?
This is the part of the fragrance that determines the longevity of the blend.  It is responsible for the lasting effect.
 
What is an Accord?
The accord of a fragrance is the characteristic smell that makes it recognizable and different.  A well-balanced blend of a few raw materials, natural or synthetic, that acts like a logo or signature.  You always remember it!
