English term or phrase: top note, middle note, base note
When you take a whiff from a bottle of perfume, the first odor you detect is called the top note. The middle note, or modifier, adds a different character to the odor of the top note. The base note, or end note, is the odor that lasts the longest.

impresion


Explanation:
In this context, I would say you can translate the term as "impresion"
top note=impresion inicial o primera
middle note= impresion central
base note=impresion de base o impresion permanente.

Just a guess.

Happy translating! ;o)

Explanation:
It depends on Regional marketing strategy.
In South America, they'll say notas, i.e., nota inicial, nota final...
You've already got some input about Spain's marketing.
In Mexico, both expressions sound alien, the word is just 'impresion', -inicial, final and 'corazon de la fragancia'. If you are translating for the Chilean market, I'd advise you to use 'notas'.
