Perfume is described in a musical metaphor as having three 'notes' (Top, Middle and Base), making the harmonious chord of the scent. These notes are created carefully with knowledge of the evaporation process of the perfume.

The first thing you smell when you open the bottle is the first 'note'.. when it goes away a little bit, you can feel second weaker smell there, which is the middle note. The last that remains on your skin or cloth for a very long time is the base. There are very few bases in the world of perfume. Most perfumes share three or four bases. The differences is usually in the blends and the notes (different smells) you get from there.
Good luck.
