“Knowledge by RUB” from the perfumer’s perspective

As different scents evaporate at different rates, a perfume doesn’t smell the same seconds, hours or days after being applied. Perfumers distinguish between head note, heart note, and base note to characterise this progression. “Knowledge by RUB” is made up of approx. 40 components. Several characteristic scents are listed in the head, heart, and base note categories below. However, a perfume is more than merely a sum of its components. This is because the substances affect each other, thus creating a sophisticated blend.

Head note

Substances that evaporate quickly, forming a person’s first impression

  • Citrus
  • Orange
  • Bergamot
  • Lavender (optional)

Heart note

The heart of the scent, which emerges hours after the head note has evaporated

  • Lavender
  • Maté tea
  • Myrrh
  • Rose
  • Hedione, mellow scent of jasmine and magnolia (optional)

Base note

Heavy, long-lasting components that are perceived by the end of the scent period

  • Musk
