Perfume is a mixture of natural essences and aromatic products. These are combined in a harmonious way to create a pleasurable sensation due to the volatile character of the components as they evaporate into the air we breathe.

The creator of a scent combines simple scents –essences- to obtain complex fragrances.

"Perfume is the expression of beauty in the olfactory's area

The aromatic composition of a perfume is ruled by some basic norms whose function is to structure the form in which the fragrances are perceived by the nose. The perception of the scents should be both ordered and balanced in such a way that the sensations we receive are aesthetically pleasing.

Volatility is an indispensable physical characteristic for any substance which gives off an odour.  Perfumes have odour because they are volatile. The volatility of the components of a perfume is never uniform but rather very different from each other. The sensory receptors of the nose first receive the odour impulses of the most volatile notes. That is to say that there is a clear order of perception in scents from the most to the least volatile.

In view of this a perfume is formed in three structural parts: top note, heart note and base note.

The top notes are the most volatile and consequently are the first to be detected.

They are mostly composed of citrus, white flowers and green notes. Usually their effect is fresh and ethereal.

The heart notes constitute the center of a perfume, adding volume, richness and exoticism. They are composed of flowers, fruits and aromatic notes.

The base notes are the most unrelenting. They give persistence and character to the perfume. They are comprised principally of woods, spices, ambers and animal products.
