Perfume is what makes us recognizable, it certainly involves the sense of smell but not only that, a fragrance is able to open our memory drawers and unlock memories, memories, experiences, just touch the taut thread of a perfume that memories resonate immediately.
This is why psychologists recommend, for example, to change your perfume when you have a sad and painful experience, so as not to mentally chain that particular aroma to something that has deeply hurt us.
How do they differ? Based on the degree of volatility of each of the essential oils that make up a particular perfume.
The olfactory pyramid is made up of 3 levels which, examined from top to bottom, illustrate the way in which the fragrance evolves over time, a sort of meter that takes into account the time that passes from its first application.
The HEAD notes correspond to the “flight of perfume”, that olfactory sensation that is felt in the 5 minutes following the first application. These are light and volatile essences that mainly serve to capture attention and stimulate the senses before the others and which therefore help to create the first impression of a perfume, something we like and immediately stimulates us.
They lead back to the masculine on an esoteric level and lead back to doing, to what stimulates “DOING”.
The raw materials that create the most volatile profile of a fragrance, and therefore the top notes, are of weak persistence, such as citrus fruits or aromatic plants.
Among the most common top notes, citrus or “hesperidium” notes, such as that of orange, lemon, grapefruit and citrus fruits in general, eucalyptus and lavender or aquatic notes, reminiscent of the sea.
The HEART or body notes correspond to the “scent trail“, and are much more powerful and consistent than the top notes. These are essences that are linked to both the feminine and the masculine. They are enveloping and sensual notes that contribute on an emotional level to awaken deep sensations, resilience and the ability to cope with adversity. They have a good persistence and are felt above all between 5 and 20 minutes after the first application of the fragrance.
Among the most common heart notes we can find floral notes, such as lily of the valley, jasmine, rose and tuberose, green notes, which recall elements closer to the earth such as benzoin, leaves or grass (of which our fragrances are rich!), fruity notes, such as peach, pear and apricot.
The BASE notes correspond to the “personality of the perfume“, are purely attributable to the female universe and are warm and persistent. These are olfactory aspects that are not immediately perceived, but which derive from elements that evaporate slowly and can resist even for several hours from the first application. Welcoming, conciliatory like a mother.
The raw materials that create the deepest part of a fragrance, and therefore the base notes, are very persistent, such as woods and musks, elemi or the Indian hemp oil so dear to us at Lagalene.
Among the most common base notes we can also find woody notes, such as cedar and sandalwood, musky notes, oriental and amber notes, such as vanilla, patchouli and cinnamon.
We need to express the perfume contained in our souls and the right fragrance can help us express who we are. Lagalene embraces this philosophy and with our products we have studied a perfect balance to stimulate the mind, body and above all our soul.
