THE SCENT BEFORE TIME: Where it all began.

In the land before time, smelling good was not a really a case of vanity for either one of the genders.
Vanity was about make-up alone, for both; YES! I know right!
As a majority of historians rightfully agree that today we cannot really know for sure as to when, how and who exactly invented make-up. It would be correct to say that it was around 12,000 years ago by ancient Egyptians. The Archeologists confirmed that the evidence of makeup lies in a tomb in Karnak.

Starting from the nomadic era, we never really had the liberty to pick our own fragrance, as the choices were too scarce. Today, however, we have reached a stage where we can not only test various perfumes and make our choice but also customize a fragrance to our liking or suitability thanks to the bespoke option,

Today we are flooded with various pools of perfumes and it is safe to say that we have discovered our own individual fragrance.

So, what exactly do we know about perfumes?
Where did it come from?
Who gave this beautiful gift to humankind?
The Latins did! Perfume: this aromatic word is a traveling scented mixture, "Per Fumus," it means, through smoke.

The art and culture of making perfumes began in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. Then marched in the Romans who further refined the scented mixture, followed by the Persians and the Arabs.
East Asia too had the existence of the fragrance, however, it was only incense based.

Without getting into too much history about the perfumes, let’s tell you about the beauty of fragrance today and as they say ‘Live in the present’.

In our happy realization about the beautiful or should I say aromatic past and a bespoke present of the perfume evolution we have Coco Chanel supporting the art and importance of smelling good when she said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”

Well, let’s all agree that Gabrielle Bonheur knew what she was saying.
