ime natural perfumes are the perfect marriage of the finest botanical ingredients – flowers, grasses, herbs, spices, bark, buds and more.
They are a carefully constructed set of layers known as notes.
Top (head) notes
are your initial impression of a perfume, they dissipate quickly and are usually made of light, fresh and uplifting ingredients.
Middle (heart) notes
make up the body of the fragrance, these notes emerge as the top notes fade and are usually floral, warm and soft notes. They also soften the first impression of the base notes as they emerge.
Base (bottom) notes
are rich and deep and form a strong foundation for the perfume layers to be built upon. They last the longest and help ‘fix’ the lighter notes, extending their evaporation process. The middle and base notes form the main fragrance of each perfume. These notes are integral to the longevity of a fragrance.
A common misconception is that anything natural must mean it is safe, however, all natural ingredients are still chemicals, some can be toxic in their natural form, therefore each need to be used in correct amounts in order to be safe for use.
ime natural perfume ingredients have been assessed and comply with Australian cosmetic regulations according to the below industry standards:
- NICNAS– National Industrial Chemicals Notification & Assessment Scheme of Australia.
NICNAS aids in the protection of the Australian people and the environment by assessing the risks of industrial chemicals and providing information to promote their safe use.
IFRA – International Fragrance Association.
The IFRA Standards form the basis for the globally accepted and recognised risk management system for the safe use of fragrance ingredients and are part of the IFRA Code of Practice.
