Video: ❶ Lavender Note, Patchouli Note: How Fragrances Are Created
In order for admiring fans to inhale the scent trail that spreads after a charming girl, perfumers have to work hard. The creation of a new scent is akin to the work of a composer, when a work of art is born from notes. No wonder the elements of the fragrance are called notes. Location: Location: When creating a perfume, a perfume designer sees a certain image in front of him that needs to be embodied in the form of a fragrance. The perfumer creates mixtures, he is in constant search for new shades of aroma.
The most difficult thing is to create a scent that has no more than 30 constituents. This is a difficult task. A fragrance with a huge number of "notes" is created faster, but it can no longer be called a masterpiece. A real piece of perfumery consists of just a small amount of ingredients. Every note sounds in such a scent.
When a perfumer has created an image in his head, he begins to compose a bouquet based on the olfactory experience. In the laboratory for this there are sets of alcohol solutions of one or another ingredient. If it is necessary to come up with a new interpretation of an already well-known fragrance, then it is taken as a basis, and then new notes are added to it during the experiment. For example, if the notes of patchouli and amber dominate in the aroma, then freshness will prevail in the aroma. Cinnamon and musk add astringency. And if you add Turkish rose extract to it, then the initially fresh scent will become oriental. It is also important where the notes "stand". There is a concept of "top" and "bottom" notes - there are notes that are "heard" in the fragrance immediately, and there are those that represent the "trail". Rearranging notes in places gives new scents.
But this does not mean at all that the same type of works is born from the same notes. Each designer has his own "kitchen" for the preparation of aromas. The readiness of the aroma is determined solely by the taste of the creator. This is almost an intuitive feeling based on knowledge of the canons.
Modern designers tend to believe that there are no absolutely masculine and feminine fragrances. After all, there may be a lady with a strong character and a man with female character traits. Here everyone chooses for himself. An important detail is that the scent must be combined with the body odor. Only then will it perfectly suit the owner.
Sometimes aromas can reveal a particular character trait. For example, if an insecure girl starts to "wear" a scent with notes of rose, it can help her gain confidence in herself and reveal qualities that she was embarrassed to demonstrate to others.
Fragrances are not frozen matter. It is a kind of living substance that endows the owner with a certain charm and allows you to look at yourself differently.
