Welcome to our guide on perfumes and their magical recipes!

What Is Perfume Made Of?

Perfume is a blend of fragrant oils, alcohol, and water. It makes us smell nice.

There are three “notes” or layers in a perfume:

  • Top notes: The first scent you smell.
  • Middle notes: The heart of the perfume.
  • Base notes: The final scent that lasts.

These notes together make a unique smell.

Understanding Notes and Ratios

In perfumes, we use a special kind of recipe.

We call it a formula.

Top notes should be light, middle notes full, and base notes rich.

Here’s how a simple formula can look:

Note Type Percentage of Total Example Scents
Top Notes 20% Lemon, Lavender
Middle Notes 50% Rose, Jasmine
Base Notes 30% Vanilla, Musk
