Full Answer

Perfumes are blended according to three basic fragrance notes, which are top, middle and base notes. While the middle notes are observed after the top notes of the fragrance start to evaporate, the base notes are associated with the scent that remains after the complete evaporation of the top notes.

Although Princess Diana wore 24 Faubourg in later years, she wore the perfume Quelques Fleur on her wedding day. Princess Diana was born in 1961. After marrying Prince Charles in 1981, she became the Princess of Wales. She died in 1997 in Paris, France.
