Fragrance notes, also called perfume notes, are terms used to describe perfume scents depending on how long they are sensed after being applied. This basis of these grouping is on how volatile the perfumes are, and are classified as top notes, heart notes, and base notes.

They are also called headnotes, and these groups of perfumes notes are the most volatile of the three groups. Hence, they are perceived earliest. This makes top notes important when it comes to making a first impression and is usually fresh or active. But then, these scents also have the shortest duration. Examples of top notes are: Orange zest and lemon scents found in the zuofun perfume supplier Dancer Men Black and Dancer Noir Spray.

Heart notes are also called middle notes, and these groups of perfume notes are next in line. Their scent usually emerges before the Top Notes disappear, but before the base notes appear, you can say they are the in-between of Top Notes and Base Notes. They usually take roughly twenty minutes to one hour after the application of the perfume to appear. Rose and jasmine scent are in this category of fragrance notes.
