flavor terminology

The classic way is to talk about three types of flavor "notes". [2] These are very similar to the top / middle / base notes in perfumery.

Flavor combinations can described as 'fullness' or 'roundness'. This means there's several different notes present, that fit together well.

TODO, explore this: Some people organize their spice rack by high, mid, and base flavors.
