aesthetic aromatic note of the fruit oils. The leading brands
of the perfumes of Iran and France use to use the basic notes
of the lime, oranges, grapes, lemon, and apricots. Many leadung
perfume makers use the predominant notes of peaches as well.

Drywoods bases are strictly for the men. This is a category
where the presence of the wondrous woody fragrance is noticed
when dried up, along with the additional notes of tobacco or
leather or cedar or burnt woods. Sometimes the masculine woody
notes are made lightened by applying some citrus notes, which
gives the fragrance a special effect.

awe-inspiring features of softness. The perfumes falling under
this category are specifically for females. First appeared in
