Perfume, in the sense of ascent for wearing, originated in the Middle Ages. It was partly a luxury product and much cheaper to buy than (for example) incense, which was an ingredient of religious rituals. The recognizable forms into which perfumes are today cut take their contemporary forms in the 1800s, though their aroma-chemical composition has not changed. Although perfume oils and waters may be taken for granted by some people, the use of scents is an important part of many religious ceremonies.
What is perfume?
Perfume is an art form. It’s about blending raw ingredients to create something new, something that smells good and evokes a feeling.
Perfume is made from essences extracted from flowers or other aromatic sources. The most common raw materials are petals and citrus peels. Other materials include jasmine, rose, lavender, ylang-ylang, and patchouli.
Essential oils can be extracted from these materials by distillation or expression (forcing the plant material through a sieve under pressure). The result is an oily liquid called an absolute. Almond oil is one example of an absolute oil.
Why do people use perfume?
There are many reasons why people use perfume. Here are some of the most popular:
Make a good impression on others.
To feel more confident and attractive.
To cover up bad odors, such as body odor or cigarette smoke.
Enjoy the fragrance of your favorite scent.
To express your personality through scent.
The history o Perfume?
The history of perfume is as long as the history of civilization itself. In fact, perfumes and scents have been around for so long that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when they first came into being. It’s believed that scents were used in ancient Egypt to mask the smell of decaying bodies during burial ceremonies. And the ancient Greeks and Romans used incense to purify their homes and temples and to mask unpleasant odors during religious ceremonies.
But it wasn’t until the Middle Ages that perfume became a luxury item associated with wealth, power, and status. During this time period, European nobles would wear perfumes made from rare spices imported from faraway lands such as India and China. These fragrant concoctions were often made into ointments or balms that were then applied directly onto the skin where they could be absorbed through the pores
Between men and women who people like most perfume?
According to a survey conducted by the Huffington Post, men are more likely to admit their love for perfume than women.
Men were found to be more open to discussing their love of perfume and wearing it in public compared with women.
The survey included 2,000 men and women between the ages of 21 and 45 who have used fragrance products in the past month. The results showed that while 58 percent of men wear fragrances every day, only 40 percent of women do so. In addition, 73 percent of men admitted they use fragrances on a daily basis versus only 57 percent of women who said the same thing.
