The Stages of Fragrance Evaporation

In many of the fragrances we offer here at Lee Naturals you may notice we provide details of the Top, Middle and Base note scents. We do this to provide you details on how the candle or wax melt fragrance you purchase will smell throughout the life of the product. Below is more details on what each of the scent stages means.


Top Notes: The first scent impressions; the most volatile ingredients. They evaporate quickly, leading to the middle notes.

Middle Notes: Evolving scents which develop over a bit more time; the heart of the fragrance.

Base Notes: Underlying notes, which gradually come through, the strongest and longest lasting.
