OUR NATURAL FRAGRANCE
BEAUTIFUL FRESH FLORAL
OUR NATURAL SCENT
We spent 12 months researching and developing the MIMI scent. It had to be natural, using only essential oils. It needed to be uplifting without overpowering and it needed to be unisex as MIMI is for all kids.
The result: a beautiful, fresh uplifting floral with top notes of Orange Peel, Lavender and Geranium extracts. A middle note of delicious Vanilla and a grounding base note of Cedarwood.
The fragrance pyramid is a conceptual framework used in the perfume industry to describe the different notes or components of a fragrance. It is a way of categorising the various scents that contribute to the overall composition of a perfume. The pyramid is typically divided into three main layers or "notes": top notes, middle notes (heart notes), and base notes.
- Top Notes: These are the initial scents that are perceived immediately upon application of the fragrance. They are usually light and volatile, providing the first impression of the perfume. Top notes are fleeting and evaporate relatively quickly. Common top notes include citrus, fruity, and herbal scents.
- Middle Notes (Heart Notes): The middle notes emerge after the top notes have evaporated. They form the main body of the fragrance and are often floral, spicy, or fruity. Middle notes contribute to the overall character and theme of the perfume. They are more stable than top notes but still evaporate over time.
- Base Notes: These are the foundation of the fragrance and provide depth and longevity. Base notes emerge as the top and middle notes dissipate. They are often rich, warm, and persistent, anchoring the scent and giving it a lasting presence. Base notes commonly include woody, musky, or balsamic elements.
The fragrance pyramid helps consumers understand how a perfume evolves over time as different notes unfold on the skin. Perfumers use a combination of these notes to create a complex and harmonious fragrance that develops uniquely on each individual.
Check the Ingredients List:
- Synthetic Fragrances: Look for terms like "fragrance," "parfum," or "perfume." If these terms are listed, it's likely that the fragrance is synthetic. Manufacturers often use these general terms to protect their specific fragrance formulas.
- Natural Fragrances: If a product contains natural fragrances, the ingredients list may specify essential oils, plant extracts, or other natural sources. Look for terms like "lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil" or "citrus grandis (grapefruit) extract."
Proprietary fragrance blends are often used to protect the unique formulation of a synthetic fragrance. If a product lists a proprietary blend without specifying natural sources, it's likely to contain synthetic fragrances.
