The olfactory pyramid is a model used to describe the structure of a fragrance. The olfactory pyramid consists of three levels: top notes, heart notes, and base notes.
Top notes are the first olfactory sensations perceived when smelling a perfume. They are generally fresh and light, and are only felt for a few minutes after the perfume is applied. Top notes may include fruits, herbs, spices and other light fragrances.
Heart notes are the fragrances that are perceived after the top notes have dissipated. They are more persistent and last for a longer period of time. Heart notes may include flowers, berries, plants, and other more complex fragrances.
Base notes are the fragrances that remain on the skin for a long time after the top and heart notes have dissipated. They are often more intense and may include woods, moss, amber and other deeper fragrances.
The olfactory pyramid is used to describe how a fragrance develops and changes over time when it is worn. The top, heart and base notes work together to create a unique olfactory experience. The olfactory pyramid helps perfume developers create balanced and complex fragrances, and helps consumers better understand what they are smelling when they wear a fragrance.
Like all cosmetics, fragrances are also regulated by specific rules that guarantee their safety. Perfume is in fact a cosmetic product as defined by Regulation (EC) n. 1223/2009 and is therefore subject to a whole series of obligations relating to the content, the packaging in which it is placed on the market, the documentation that must be available to the Authorities in the form of a Product Information File (PIF). Regulation (EC) no. 1223/2009 also provides for the Responsible Person to declare 26 ingredients of the fragrance compositions in the ingredients list if their concentration exceeds certain values.
Other guarantees on the safety of perfume derive from the IFRA (International Fragrance Association) code and standards, which participating perfumers must comply with: for example, the IFRA code establishes the maximum admissible quantity in a cosmetic for a given component). Another fundamental document for the safety of perfume is the FSE (Fragrance Safety Evaluation), introduced in 1997 with the VI amendment to directive 76/768. The FSE is the main tool available to the safety assessor in order to evaluate the toxicological profile of the fragrance itself, therefore it constitutes an essential part of the PIF.
