What is perfume?
Perfume is a liquid that is applied to the body to make it smell better. The first perfumes were made in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, where they were used in religious ceremonies. In modern times, perfume is produced by a wide variety of companies and often comes in different forms, such as cologne and eau de perfume.
Perfume and fragrance are terms used interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same thing. A fragrance can be made up of many ingredients and can include essential oils, synthetic materials, or both. Perfume is a mixture of fragrances with alcohol added to preserve it.
The main types of perfumes include:
Eau de Cologne —
Cologne water was invented by Johann Maria Farina in 1709 in Cologne, Germany. Cologne water is usually classified as an alcohol-based fragrance because it doesn’t contain any essential oils; instead, it uses a base formula that gives off a fruity smell with citrus notes like orange blossom or lemon verbena.
Eau de Parfum —
Also known as “extrait,” “perfume extract” or “pure perfume,” this type of perfume has the highest concentration of aromatic compounds compared with other types of fragrances due to perfume.
Scent notes – woodsy
There are ten main categories of scents, listed below. Of course, there are many more individual scents, but these are the major groupings.
Floral notes include rose, jasmine, violet, and honeysuckle. They are usually very sweet and soft but can be strong and overpowering if used in excess.
Oriental notes include vanilla, amber, musk, and patchouli. These scents tend to be rich and warm with a slight animalic undertone.
Fresh notes include citrus-like bergamot or orange blossom as well as floral-like lilac or lily of the valley. They are light and fresh with little to no sweetness or muskiness associated with them.
Spicy notes include cinnamon, clove, and ginger which can be used in both masculine or feminine fragrances depending on their strength in relation to other ingredients (i.e. if they’re used sparingly).
Woodsy notes include woods such as sandalwood or cedarwood or tree bark like birch tar which gives off a smoky-campfire type scent when burned; smokey scents are often found in men’s frag
