Soap and glory fragrance notes and families explained

Our Fragrance Families Explained

27 April 2021

Soap & Glory fans know that our products come in an oh-so-sensual suite of seven house fragrances which have been specially crafted to indulge your senses. However, as simply scent-sational as they are, we also know that fragrance can sometimes be hard to get your head (or nose) around.

With top notes, bottom notes and everything-in-the-middle notes, understanding something as effortless as smelling good can feel a little strenuous. So, we’ve taken the hard work out of it, and put together this handy fragrance guide – all you have to do is decide on the one (or three) you want to stock up on!

What are ‘fragrance notes’?

Before we get started, a quick (smelly) lesson on ‘notes’. Fragrances are described by three layers of ‘notes’; a fancy word for the individual ‘scents’ that reach your nose at different times. Here’s why they’re important:

Top notes:

These are the fragrances that hit you on the first spritz. They last between five and 15 minutes and will deliver your first impression of the fragrance.

Heart notes:

When the top notes have faded away, you’ll be able to identify the heart notes. They make up most of the fragrance so it’s worth giving them time to warm up before you make up your mind about a perfume. (This is why it’s advised you try on a fragrance and wait 15 minutes before you can smell it’s true scent.) The heart notes stay with you for between 20 to 60 minutes.

Base notes:

And finally, base notes are the big hitter, the foundation of a fragrance. Rich, heavy and long-lasting, they can stay on your skin for up to six hours.

OK, so now you know why we obsess so deeply about our fragrance layers, here’s a guide to our signature scents.

Original Pink™

Our signature fruity ‘chypre’ fragrance Original Pink™ has been a firm favourite since we launched.

    Wish you would make body mist and renewable fragrance mist in the grapefruit-rhubarb Uplifting scent. I LOVE that scent. I have the Original Scent Body mist and like it well enough, but would have preferred the Uplifting scent if available. Maybe do a once or twice a year making of it so I can stock up??

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him +15068001647
    you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS

    I am very happy to recommend Dr. Wale to everyone that truly needs help to fix his or her broken relationship and marriage. I found Dr. Wale online I was desperately  in need of help to bring my ex Wife back. She left me for another man. It all happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. She just left me after 3 years of our marriage without any explanation. I was very worried and could not eat till I went online and I found testimonies on DR. Wale so I decided to contact Dr. Wale through his whatsApp and I explain everything to him so he helps me cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did the spell, my wife started texting and calling me again. She said that she was sorry and said that I was the most important person in her life and she knows that now. you can also contact him now for urgent help.

    GET YOUR EX LOVER BACK NOW
    I’m just upset that I have been in pain and crying for so long and many times. Thank you drmikpolo@gmail.com I wished I would have found you earlier, you would have saved me from a lot of pain for the past five years my ex lover left me for another woman
    I have tried many spell casters, white magic, energy healers you name it I have tried none of them worked. They promised me the moon and that I would get my ex boyfriend back, I didn’t because he is now engaged to another woman. I spent a small fortune enough to take my dream trip to South Carolina but what’s the point in taking a dream trip without the love of my life. Dr Mikpolo has given me hope and her honesty is a breath of fresh air, I feel so good and heavy happiness in my heart to get my ex lover back. Who I thought he was gone forever. We are getting married as I share my testimony with you guys you can add him up on hangout:  drmikpolo@gmail.com

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR.
