  1. TOP NOTES- They represent the first impression of the fragrances. This is the initial scent that is light and disappears quickly. They may include light citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, herbs, etc.
  2. MIDDLE NOTES- Middle notes are those in which the scent appears once the top notes disappear. They last longer as compared to top notes. For example- rose, lavender, etc.
  3. BASE NOTES- These are the final fragrance notes. They last the longest and are the base of the perfume. For example- sandalwood, vanilla, etc.
