A STORY OF SCENTS

FRAGRANCE NOTES

A “note” is a fancy word for descriptors of scents that you smell when you burn a candle. Fragrance notes fall into one of three groups, top/head notes, middle or heart notes, and base/dry down/bottom notes. Every candle you experience is created using a carefully crafted combination of top, middle, and bottom notes.

Top Notes – These are the first notes you sense when you smell a candle. These notes “introduce” the candle fragrance, and are typically fresh, light, and citrusy.  These notes are the first experience of a candle’s cold throw, but don’t necessarily fade away over time.

 

Middle (Heart) Notes – Often called “heart notes”, the middle notes of a fragrance are a bit more complex and fuller-bodied than top notes. They are often the superstar of a fragrance blend, providing balance and harmony to enhance the top or bottom notes. Some popular middle notes are classic florals, berries and spicy or herbaceous notes.

 

Bottom Notes – Bottom notes are the heavier, longer-lasting notes that are often made of larger molecules.  Notes such as vanilla, amber, wood or musk bring balance to a blend by weighing it down and rounding out the experience.

Our Concentrated Performance Range offer a more premium grade of fragrance oil compared to our standard fragrances.  These fragrances have been specially formulated using more natural ingredients to promote longevity, strength and additional quality to the finished product and provide a stronger scent throw from our candles, diffusers and wax bars.
