To feel good and smell good, you can use perfume after grooming yourself properly. Perfumes, and body sprays have become a part of today’s youth’s attire.
Perfume compounds go hand in hand with the party wear. In Persian language, perfumes are known as Attars.
Arabs and Persians popularized attars largely, apart from herbal, fragrant materials and spices.
They perfected in preparing attars through steam distillation, and also prepared new perfumes by introducing new ingredients, and removing few of them. Different types of attars are available in the market.
They are attar champa, attar gulab, attar kewra, attar mitti, attar motia, attar shamama, and so on. In all these perfume compounds, sandalwood is distilled along with natural fragrant materials like champaca, rose, pandanus, baked Kannauj earth, jasmine sambac, saffron, agarwood, and so on. Plants are the main source in the preparation of perfume compounds.
Essential oils, fixatives, aroma compounds, and solvents are mixed together to form a perfume. Depending upon the aroma compounds we use, we get such flavor.
To consider a perfume as perfume extract, you need to consider the amount and type of solvent mixed with the fragrance oil.
The solvent for the aromatics is a mixture of alcohol and water. When you apply the perfume on your body, the solvent vanishes fast due to heat, while the fragrance on your body fills the atmosphere.
Based on the quickness with which the scent emerges when the perfume is applied, the perfumes are classified into notes.
The scent, that appears immediately after the perfume is applied, it is the top note. The scent that appears after the dissipation of top note is known as heart or middle note. Base note is the scent that appears after the top note disappears completely.
Both base & heart notes form the perfume’s theme. We use perfumes, not only on our clothes, but also on objects and living space, so that the atmosphere is fragrant and pleasant. For longer life of fragrance compounds in the perfume, make sure that you don’t expose it to heat, light, oxygen, or any other organic material.
