A fragrance is a complex mixture of what people in the perfume industry refer to as raw materials. These raw materials can be extracted from natural sources or synthetic raw materials.
Perfumed oils are dissolved in a solvent to preserve a pleasant concoction of scents. A higher concentration of oils usually means a stronger fragrance. The strength of the fragrance determines how long an application lasts on your skin.
Fragrances can be categorised by their level of aromatic concentration. Parfum is the strongest and most concentrated type of fragrance whilst fragrances that are labelled as colognes, aftershaves, and eau de toilette are less concentrated.
Convoy, only uses the highest parfum concentration levels, which enables them to produce fragrances which are more intense, last longer and only require a small amount to be applied.
Fragrances have a three-part life cycle. Each of the three sections contain individual scents, or notes, that are belted together into what you smell.
There are three different types of notes that comprise the scent of most fragrances: top, medium, and base notes:
Topnote. The top note is the initial, lighter smell of the fragrance that hits the nose immediately after application to the skin. The top note lasts from 15 minutes to 2 hours. Typical top notes are various light floral scents, citrus, fruity scents, powdery scents, marines and aquatics, and spices such as cinnamon.
Mediumnote. Also referred to as the middle or heart notes. The middle note showcases the main element of the fragrance. Middle notes develop after the top note clears and can last 3-5 hours after being applied. This is in addition to the top note; they build off each other. Heart notes most often include heavier floral scents such as jasmine, or green scents such as grass or stone. Spice scents such as cinnamon and clove can appear here, along with fruity scents as well.
Basenote. The last to develop, these scents are often the bolder notes of the scent which become more noticeable later in the day. Base notes lay the foundation and will determine how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. They tend to last from 5 to 10 hours. Typical base notes are sandalwood, moss, vetiver, vanilla, tar, leather, smoke, tobacco, and musk.
It’s important to note that every fragrance smells different on every person. It’s this uncertainty and complexity that leads you into a journey of discovery.
