Some of the most memorable birthday and Christmas presents to come my way have included scent, body products etc. There is something very satisfying about opening a beautifully packaged carton and seeing the choice that this person has made for me. I must admit that I have never been very knowledgable about perfumes or how they are manufactured and it was only when a young acquaintance of mine started a perfume based party scheme that all this wonderful science came to my attention.
I was handed leaflets that explained the make up of the scents – there being head notes, or high notes and conversely, low or base notes. In the middle are the heart notes and various other factors . Many different flowers and aroma poducts are blended to a truly acute degree to bring sensory delights every year. Though it has to be said that the old favourites are still out there to be enjoyed for ever!
