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
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.
