Barclay Crocker started 21 years ago with its own line of creames, lotions, oils and fragrances. From our location in Silver Lake, NH, and on our website, we have a loyal following for these special blends selected by our founder Tony Barclay. Our labels read "not tested on animals". Perhaps they should read "Tested on Customers ".

The Oils that you select form the basis of the scent, often called 'notes'

For a Blend to be most succcessful, it must have a combination of all 3 notes

TOP NOTES:

The top note, sometimes called the head or outgoing note, is the part of the perfume that you smell immediately as it is applied to the skin. It consists of light, volatile fragrances, to give a good, and sometimes striking, first impression, although they quickly evaporate. It may last only for a few minutes. Added to the mixture after the middle notes, and may then be followed by some other substance which will help to bridge the scents together.

It is usually the selling point for the perfume as well as the first name listed.

Recommended Top Notes include :Chamomile, Peppermint, Orange, Lime.Lemon, Bergamot, Lavender, Rosewood. Ginger Cedarwood..

MIDDLE NOTE

The Middle Note Scent often evaporates after a short time, It usually consists of floral, spicy or woody components which determine the basic character & inspiration of the perfume, it will influence the smell - but not as long as BASE NOTE

The middle note, also called the medium note or heart, is the main section of the perfume, which becomes dominant after the top note has faded away, It is generally considered as the heart of the perfume and often server to cover up any unpleasant scents that may come from the base notes.

Recommended Middle Notes :Spicy/ Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg. Florals: Lavender, Rose,Gardenia, Lily of Valley, Jasmine,Ylang Ylang,Violet..

BASE NOTES - have a profound influence on the eventual scent result.

Base notes are the scents that last the longest in a perfume. Becoming more discernable within 20 min to over 2 hours after application.and can often remain for up to a day or two. Base notes 'fix' other essences to give staying power and are usually added first to a mixture, usually consisting of animalic, woody, resinous or crystalline components.

Recommended Base notes are Almond ,Amber, Bay Rum, Carnation,Cedar,Chypre, Fern, Frankincense, Lavender, Musk, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Sandalwood , Spiced Rum, Vanilla & Vetyver.

Chypre, Citrus, Floral, Fruity /Foody Green, Oriental or Woodsy

Woodsy perfumes have a perfume personality which revolves around the natural earthy feel. With huge amounts of sandalwood and patchouli, woody perfumes are not only appealing but also refreshing. Other ingredients like vetiver make these perfumes drier, whereas a bit of citrus gives it an exotic touch. This is yet another scent for those who love Mother Nature! Woody fragrance are very natural. Woody scents are pine aromas, earthy, rich, mossy, and flowery, sometimes with leather, fruits, or spices, with amber and a touch of patchouli. The stronger woody fragrance are seductive while the lighter ones are subtle
 
Floral scents

Citrus a close relative to floral fragrances due to their core of fresh ingredients taken from nature, Citrus perfumes and aftershaves are slightly sharper than floral fragrances. As the name suggests citrus fragrances are mainly based around citrus fruits with popular ingredients including Lemons, Mandarins, Oranges and Grapefruit which are used to create tangy scents filled with energy. Citrus perfumes have a light, fresh character, infused with the tangy essence of citrus fruits, these perfumes are lively and energetic. They are best enjoyed as a daytime delight, just the thing to wake you up in the morning and are composed of citrus oils to which herby, spice or floral oils can be added. This fragrance type is very popular with men but also pleasing to women.
 
Oriental fragrances are warm with musks, amber, and strong spicy scents such as vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, and blended with flowers such as rose or orchid.
 
HOW TO TEST A FRAGRANCE Do not smell the top of the bottle or its cap as is usually done in a variety store. In a perfumery or store that specializes in perfumes, they will do it the right way which is to always try the perfume or fragrance on your skin. The scent on the bottle cap may smell of alcohol instead of smelling accurately like the perfume. Another point is that Chemical reactions between your skin and the perfume may not change the scent much, or may drastically change the scent of the perfume. When you spray the fragrance on your skin for the first time, wait for about thirty seconds until alcohol evaporates. The most accurate fragrance of the perfume mixed with your body chemistry will emerge after about 10 minutes. Then you will be able to find out what the top notes of perfume are.
