Representing the essence of love, sweet smelling perfumes are the perfect "accessory" that can complete any look. Here are nine of the best scents for the summer that will bring happiness and youthfulness in your life.
Perfumes are described as having three sets of "notes". There
are the top notes, which can be perceived immediately after you
apply the perfume, and they evaporate quickly. These notes form the
first impression of a perfume. Then, there are the middle notes or
the "heart" that emerge after the top notes dissipate. Finally, the
base notes that can not be perceived until 30 minutes after
application, and they are the main part of any perfume.
