Let's Breakdown Fragrance Notes So You Know What the Experts Kno

In a previous article I wrote about the importance of knowledge relative to fragrance notes. Some of the synonyms for knowledge are: Facts, Familiarity, Awareness, & Understanding.

There was a famous pop culture expression said by fictional detective Joe Friday (i.e., Dragnet), "Just the facts maam". He wasn't interested in frivolous information he just wanted the facts.

In shopping for a product or service it is important to take the time to get the facts or having a better understanding or awareness about a product or service to minimize the anxiety when making the final decision.

When the product is very personal such as a male or female fragrance, it would be prudent to spend some time and review the information on fragrance families and fragrance notes. Just opening a bottle of cologne and/or perfume and taking a sniff isn't enough. Do yourself a favor and give your olfactory senses some knowledge.


The fragrance notes give any cologne or perfume its unique scent or character. They are carefully blended to cause a pleasant olfactory experience. Imagine the difference between looking at notes on a piece of music or knowing how to read the notes.

The classic scent of Chanel #5 and the more modern ACQUA DI GIO don't just happen... let's take a closer look...

Chanel #5:

Introduced in 1921 combining a classic scent of sparkling florals

Sparking florals sound very appealing but let's add other categories such as scent strength: moderate; recommended age: mature; scent life: 6-10 hours; recommended use: casual; classification: flowery.

Now you've got a better understanding of this classic scent.

ACQUA DI GIO cologne:

Introduced in 1997), by Giorgio Armani

Combinescitrus notes, rosemary spiciness, jasmine, and wood.

Add other categories you learn the following: scent strength: moderate; recommended age: perfect for anyone; scent life: 6-10 hours; recommended use: casual; classification: citrus/fruity.

Now we've learned that Chanel #5 has a floral scent and ACQUA DI GIO is classified citrus/fruity. We know that both have similar scent strength and both can be worn as a casual/everyday scent.

With this information you now havesome facts, familiarity, awareness and a better understanding of Chanel and ACQUA DI GIO.
