When combining scents, it is best to include a range of scents (perfumery notes) for the most impactful fragrances. Top (head) notes tend to be light, dissipate quickly, and are often citrusy. The middle (heart) and bottom (base) notes of a fragrance are deeper, longer-lasting aromas and could be depicted as earthy or woodsy. The most impactful and enduring fragrances generally combine notes from all three categories .
