Fragrances are an integral part of many men’s and women’s lives, but a quality fragrance does more than smell good -perfumes and colognes have been shown to boost people’s mood and confidence and are often associated with pleasant memories. Some fine fragrances even interact with body chemistry, releasing pheromones that reportedly attract the opposite sex. Regardless of the reason you wear perfume, the ingredients are an important part of creating and choosing a high-quality fragrance.
The Harmonist is a fragrance line that has blended the power of scent with the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui. It offers a precious collection of elixirs to empower and create balance in the lives of men and women. Each fragrance is an embodiment of the 5 elements of Feng Shui: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each fragrance is intricately created with a variety of natural ingredients that blossom beautifully with the warmth of skin.
Top notes are sometimes called head notes and are usually the lightest notes in a fragrance; they are the most prominent aspect of the scent when a perfume is first applied. Middle notes, also called heart notes, usually consist of fruity or floral tones and are more apparent over time and are usually only noticed once the top notes begin to dissipate. And finally, base notes appear after all of the top notes have evaporated. Base notes linger for a long time after application and are usually only apparent during what is called the dry-down period.
Top, middle, and base notes are essential for multi-dimensional fragrances that leave a lasting impression. Here is a discovery of ingredients in some of our elemental fragrances, and more can be found on theharmonist.com.
