A SUBTLE COMPLEXITY
Healthy Scented Solutions
Hotel Scents is continuously raising the bar for healthy scenting solutions in the industry. This has been accomplished through years of Aromachology research and application that is used when developing each scent in our exclusive scent library. While most other scenting companies use synthetic cartridges and plug-ins, Hotel Scents uses only the highest quality essential oil blends, with a great deal of time and consideration going into choosing which ingredients to use for each scent.
When looking to find the perfect scent or scents, keep in mind that there are three notes of any oil; Top, Middle, and Base.
This is the lightest of the notes, and it is the first scent you encounter in a fragrance. It is the initial impression of the scent. Since Top notes are the first impression, they are very important for the selling of a perfume or fragrance. They are best described as “fresh” or “sharp.” These notes are the most volatile, as they dissipate the quickest.
Common fragrance top notes include citrus (lemon, orange zest, bergamot), light fruits (grapefruit, berries), and herbs (clary sage, lavender).
These are the notes that begin to develop as the fragrance begins to react with its environment. Frequently referred to as “the heart” of the scent, they are often used to mask out the first impressions of an unpleasant base note. This is typically comprised of a scent that is mellow or well-rounded. Scents that are classified as Middle notes usually appear within two to sixty minutes after the initial application.
Common fragrance middle notes include lavender, geranium, rose, lemongrass, ylang ylang, coriander, nutmeg, and neroli.
This is the scent that carries the highest molecular weight and emerges last. Typically, this scent will appear after the disappearance of the Top notes. Base notes bring the scent together, forming a solid foundation to the fragrance. They are used to boost the lighter notes of both the Top and Middle oils. The base note aromas usually do not appear until at least 30 minutes after the initial application of a scent.
Common fragrance base notes include jasmine, cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla, amber, patchouli, oakmoss, and musk.
