What are Fragrance Notes?

All fragrance sold by NICCO are described by their fragrance notes. Understanding these notes doesn’t have to be complex, and will help you better determine which scent is right for you. Knowing the fragrance notes allows you to match a perfume with your personal preference and personality.  Besides that, which is a pretty important part of selecting a new fragrance, you will feel more informed and comfortable explaining the notes to other people yourself.

Understanding Different Fragrance Notes 

All fragrances have three types of note, a top note, a middle note, and a base note.  A top note is the first scent you ‘experience’ when you first apply the fragrance. This scent evaporates quickly, so these are important when making an initial impression. Top notes include and can be referred to as citrusy, summery, woody, spicy, or floral.

Why not try NICCO 186 - a rich woody fragrance inspired by Halfeti.

After the top notes, you then smell the middle notes, also known as heart notes. This is the scent you experience after the top note has faded a little.  These form the main body of the perfume. They are usually a little more mellow and stick around for longer.

Popular heart notes include Patchouli which gives a rich sweet yet musky earthy aroma such as that found in NICCO 200 a fragrance for men similar to Aventus.

Finally, you then have the base note, which are the scents that reveal itself as the perfume sits on your skin and warms up to your body temperature.  It can take up to an hour or so for this to occur, but the scent can last all day if using Eau de Parfum, just like all fragrances at NICCO 

Now you know what it means when we describe our fragrance in terms of base notes, top notes, and middle notes of a scent. This should help you when choosing a new scent for yourself. Remember that it does take up to an hour for that true scent of a fragrance to adjust on your body, so before making any quick decisions about a scent, be patient and wait for the luxurious scent of a fragrance from NICCO get to work.
