As I said on my first blog that you will come to know about me leisurely. There are lot of things I like but perfumes are my weakness, my love , my lust , my flame & my passion . I examined , polished & studied a lot about perfumes over the last few years. Perfumes has its own dope effect if you come to know about its inside story, an absolute different science & theory all-together .

I would like to enlighten you with the self schooling I did to educate myself about perfumes .

Let's go point wise

Tenacity - The prolongation for any perfume is between 2 to 8 hrs. Fragrance Oil - Higher the condensation of fragrance oil , higher the price . The concentration level differ from perfume to perfume. It can be 20-40% , 7-15%, also 1-3% . Smelly Notes - Perfume do have "NOTES" like music. Top Notes- Strong smell.You get the smell immediately after applying but it evaporates quickly . Middle Notes - Also called heart notes. Slowly the smell beholds you & stays for a longer period. Base Notes - The notes are richer & it stays for several hours .The Essence Category

There are basic 4 subdivisions

Places to Apply

For Men - Lower Jaw, Neck , Shoulder, Chest, Inner Elbow , Forearm & Wrist .

For Woman - Behind the ears, Neck , Shoulder, Chest , Inner Elbow , Below the Midriff, Wrist , Behind your Knees Calves & Ankles.

There are many ways you can make all natural solid perfumes with high , middle or lower notes as you wish .

There are few Perfumes which I apply , and I simply love them. I will try & describe the smell to you .
