    Default Basenotes note pyramid information


    Already posted this one in the forums but didn't get an answer...
    SirSlarty was kind enough to point out that I should ask this question in the community center..

    Can anyone tell me where the basenotes information on a fragrance's notes comes from?
    ( the pyramid that is found just underneath the perfume name in the fragrance directory).

    I bought several mini's to try out and looking up the notes on the internet I've come across a few conflicting note pyramids depending on the website.

    I found great information on perfumes both on and on
    I could imagine a few minor differences, but sometimes these two sites give a completely different pyramid!

    For example the dreamer, but also Guerlain's Vetiver and probably many others:

    The dreamer by versace - on basenotes:
    Top: Juniper, Lily
    Middle: Iris
    Base: Tobacco, Amber, Tarragon

    The dreamer by versace - on
    Top: Clary sage, Lavander, Mandarin, Mace
    Middle:Tobacco, Geranium, Carnation, Rose
    base:Vetiver, cedar, Tonka, Fir

    I regularly consult six sites for pyramid information (,,,,,

    I don't know where they obtain their information and they rarely agree with each other.

    To me, the most reliable site is It is in Estonian. I use two online Estonian/English translation sites and the list compiled by scentemental that was posted in the recent thread: Fragrance Notes?
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost
