Perfect sense: With top, middle and base

Well-balanced fragrance compositions

A fragrance is recognized as a harmonious ensemble if three different scent profiles – the top-, middleand base note – blend perfectly with each other. These can vary widely, not only in the length of the effect but each of them also plays a distinct role in the complete concept of the fragrance composition.

Top note
The first thing perceived when a fragrance is tested is the top note. Its role is, to attract interest in total for the fragrance. Naturally, the top note is defined by refreshing, lively and high volatile aromatic substances. Examples for top note essential oils are citrus notes, mint, eucalyptus and basil. Their intensity already evaporates after 10 min, since at that time the middle note of the perfume develops.

Middle note
The middle notes are semivolatile, and secure a smooth and sensitive transition from the first to the third phase. Within the fragrance progress they guide to the flowery, fruitysweet notes and are mainly characterized by floral, spicy and also woody elements. Examples of essential oils for middle notes are: Attar of roses, jasmine, lavender, chamomile, balm, resinous notes, ylang-ylang. This phase shapes the character of the fragrance; therefore the second phase is also referred to as core element.

Base note
The slow volatilizing base notes are the last part of a fragrance procedure of a fragrance composition and still perceptible after hours. Hence they are responsible for the lasting impression in the room, and – depending on the fragrance – very individual. Examples for essential oils for base notes are: Woody notes, resinous notes, vanilla, honey essence, cocoa, patchouli, thyme.

We are always surprised and touched by fragrances, if they are – like a perfume – composed of a top-, middle- and a base note. Not for nothing the fragrance compositions of Kemitron comprise of several odoriferous substances. Thus fragrances are not only perceived but consciously experienced because they can be sensed very long.

We complement this assortment with seasonally available fragrances.

Conserving resources & special attention on fragrance development

The name Kemitron represents the highest level of quality

Due to the causal network, the quality of the odoriferous substances is of vital importance. Kemitron is well aware of its responsibilities and puts major attention to keep the entire value-creation chain from the finest selection of the odoriferous substance, to the development, through to production in our own hands. Our corporate philosophy obliges us to sustainably protect nature and the environment by handling resources carefully – namely in a holistic way, with the purchase of raw materials as well as the use of our products.

We know that only high-quality oils create a long-lasting fragrance experience and therefore ensure a healthy relaxation. This is why at Kemitron we use a high concentration of natural essential oils. Because only they achieve the wide variety in modes of action on both body and senses. They are only supplemented with nature-identical oils, if natural raw materials are banned or difficult to acquire for reasons of natural conservation or the protection of endangered species, or are too expensive as natural oils that the end product cannot be marketed at a reasonable price.

Sustainability on principle

All odoriferous substances and fragrances we purchase and use in manufacturing our products, are subject to the IFRA standard codex, which is based on scientific analyses of the RIFM. This sophisticated composition is one fundamental reason for the fact, that Kemitron fragrances remain stable in their intensity, even if the container has been in use for a while. We see this also as an essential contribution to a considerate handling of nature. Furthermore our Aromee products are remarkable for their high yield, efficiency and therefore for their cost-effectiveness.

We have taken a conscious decision not to use water- based emulsions as well as emulsified fragrance compounds and the associated addition of preservatives. On this account we have not been informed of any health impairing effects or other reactions resulting from Kemitron Aromee products. A confirmation will only be valid to the extent, that it can be verified that original Kemitron products were used and the dosage recommendations complied with.

Fragrances are effective

Many fragrances have a very intensive effect on the human psyche. For example bergamot cheers up and encourages people, jasmine calms them down.

This is primarily due to the fact, that aroma sensations are closely linked to our feelings. Receptors that analyze the fragrance components and forward them via electrochemical impulse directly to the brain are located in the nose.

The signals of the olfactory nerve reach the brain center and affect the vegetative nervous system that controls heartbeat, respiration, body temperature, digestion, sleep rhythm and hormone release. They also affect directly the actual emotional center – the limbic system – which processes emotions and direct instincts. As a part of the limbic system, the hippocampus is responsible for establishment and structuring of long-term memory. This explains also, why fragrances cause spontaneous images and memories in our subconscious mind.
