History Of Perfume, Cologne, And Fragrances

Perfume is an accessory that some people consider as a need. Some people see perfume as a luxury because of the high prices on the more popular brands.

It is not known to many that the use of perfume can be traced back to the ancient times. The word 'perfume' came from the Latin word 'per fumus' which means 'through smoke'. It was the early Egyptians that started the art of making perfumes called perfumery. It was used as part of religious ceremonies and even in love-making preparations. Plants like rose and peppermint were used and the perfume was rubbed into the skin. The art was further developed by the Romans and Arabs. The first few perfumes were made from fragrance oils. This technique is still being used today.
