As everyone knows, genuine perfume is an indispensable cosmetic item in everyday life for both men and women. However, in the world of these magical scents, there are so many things that are more interesting and complex than we thought and we’d better learn a little more about them.
Perfume appeared very early
In an accidental book that Huong has read, archaeologists have noted that since ancient civilizations such as Egypt and Greece have always valued fragrant precious liquids and they gave to know that they are born with a history of up to 4000 years old.
The scent of the outer sheath with perfumes
In the history of perfumery, mainly the inventors initially created perfumes for the aristocracy in Europe at that time for the purpose of hiding the unpleasant odors associated with personal hygiene. Many rich people still have an unpleasant body odor. Expensive fragrances are often sought after to conceal skin blemishes and even the aftermath of not showering for a whole month.
The first modern fragrance is produced in the year 1370
The first perfume bottle was born in 1370 called Hungary Water, with properties similar to the ones we use today. Fragrances were primarily aromatic oils but by a Hungarian monk with the idea of adding alcohol to the mixture to create a new experience. This perfume was made for Queen Elisabeth of Hungary and was very popular when used around that time.
You can help perfume last longer when sprayed in the right place
When using a perfume bottle that you want the scent to spread and keep for a long time, we need to know exactly where to store the best scent. You don’t have to waste half a bottle of perfume to make yourself fragrant. Just spray on the chest and the back of the neck is enough to smell great all day. Since those areas are often seen as hot spots, when we are active or excited it causes the blood levels in the body to rise and it is at this point that the spread of the delicate scent really begins.
Classification of common scent groups
On the market today, there are many extremely diverse fragrances. But to choose a suitable bottle for each person according to each type is a very difficult thing. That is why when producing perfumes, experts often have a strong distinction in scents such as woody, leafy, ocean, fruit, and Mysterious oriental scents or a comparison of clear concentration, the mild scent with only 5% essences and the longest-lasting scent 20% – 40% of perfumes.
The primary origin of perfumes
According to some notebooks and notes that Huong read, the word “perfume” is derived from Latin. And one of the first makers of ancient perfumes was a woman.
The information Huong shared above will partly help us to have an overview and understand more about perfume. Always be the best consumer to choose your own perfumes!
What is the difference between Parfum, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, and Cologne?
In the scent world, Parfum is the type that contains the highest concentration of essential oils and aroma. They have very little alcohol or water, and some even contain no water at all.
Behind Parfum is Eau de Parfum. Next is the Eau de Toilette and finally the Eau de Cologne. Eau de Cologne is often mistaken for a men’s fragrance, but it is not. Not only does it not limit the user’s gender, but they also often surprise when possessing a fragrance that is different from the parfum version of the same scent.
Why perfume is always expensive?
The price of a perfume usually depends mostly on the ingredients and the packaging. Parfum perfumes are always more expensive because their ingredients contain super-concentrated essential oils. But sometimes, you have to buy a bottle of perfume at an “exorbitant” price just because the manufacturer has spent too much money on advertising or paid for the appearance of a certain star.
