Frequently Asked Questions 

  • What are the different notes of a perfume?

Every perfume has typically three classes of notes that determine its fragrance. Each class has a distinctive group of scents and staying power.

  1. Top Notes make the opening scent and stay for 5-15 minutes
  2. Heart Notes make 70% of the perfume and stay for 30-60 minutes
  3. Base Notes determine the perfume’s holding power and can stay for 5-10 hours
  • How to choose a perfume?

When you are at a store to buy a perfume, sample test a few on the testing strips to see what connects with you. Then, apply your most favourite one on your pulse points and wait for a few moments to see how the fragrance smells on your skin. 

  • What are pulse points?

Pulse points are specific spots on your body where the skin is warmer like inside of your wrists and elbows, behind your ears. Spritzing perfume on these points helps it to diffuse faster and last longer.
