Notes and ingredients are different things.
The notes are often subjective descriptions of an effect which the perfumer is seeking to convey. Different people may perceive and describe them differently.The actual ingredients are likely to read more like a chemistry text.
The notes are attempts to describe how it smells, the ingredients are the substances used to make those smells.
Listings of notes often vary from place to place. Ingredients are secret formulae patented by perfume companies.
