There are so many different brands and varieties of perfumes in the market today. And with perfumes becoming something that we incorporate into our daily lives, have you ever wondered how perfume came about? And what's the fascinating history behind perfumery?
Perfumes are used many different ways throughout the years, and its usage goes back to thousands of years. In the past, only people of noble status had access to perfume. This is because perfume is expensive and also hard to come by. Perfumes were also used for hygiene and cleanliness purposes,
During olden times, Egyptians made perfumes by distilling natural ingredients with non scented oils. Today however, perfume requires a more complex method of preparation. Desired scents are mixed with ethanol, which acts as a solvent for the perfume.
The ancient Roman and Greek were also greatly into perfumery. They experimented and documented the different perfume making process. Fragrances were used in temples, places of worship and even the public bathroom. Body care items such as balms, oils for hair and skin were also scented with fragrances.
The very first perfume bottles were made of wooden containers. Perfumes were so highly valued that even precious stones were hollowed out to transport the perfumes and fragrances. Today, perfume bottles come in different coloured glass bottles with exquisite designs.
Today, perfumes are not only for the noble and everyone has access to them. Experiment with different perfumes and find out which one truly works for you! Perfumes are a fun and great way to express your personality!
