Let’s Get Technical.
Education has always been important to us, and as part of our ongoing effort to keep you informed, we’re introducing this new series. Each week, we will define a term on our site that’s not as commonly known outside of the fragrance world.
TODAY’S WORD: ACCORD
What’s an accord? And why do I see it everywhere on Clean Beauty Collective’s site?
Think of an accord as a balanced blend of notes—and the building block for a fragrance. It’s a composite of two or three notes (sometimes, even more!) that are joined together so completely that you can’t smell one note of the other. They become a unique scent. If the accord satisfies how we want it to smell, we will continue to use it as a base.From there, we can add in more notes or even more accords for a harmonious symphony of scents. Because accords are flexible, they can shift dramatically depending on which notes are added.
