Next up, the middle notes will soften the potency of your base notes. Some really popular middle notes are juniper, ylang ylang, and lavender.

Finally, there are your top notes. The top notes are the strongest smelling scents in your perfume that’s going to add the burst of drama that really makes the best perfume stand out. Some of the popular ones include bergamot or peppermint.
