If you're about to get married, why not create an amazing fragrance just for your wedding day?
When you have finished creating, your perfume will be produced so everyone member of the group goes away with their creation. Then all you have to do is think of a fabulous name and then a couple of weeks later you will receive a certificate!
The History of Perfume
We know from ancient texts, Egyptian hieroglyphics and archaeological digs that perfumes existed in some of the earliest human civilisations. In 2005, archaeologists uncovered what are believed to be the world’s oldest existing perfumes in Pyrgos, Cyprus. The perfumes date back more than 4,000 years. Not sure these would have been very sweet-smelling!
The word perfume used today derives from the Latin “per fumus”, meaning “through smoke”. Perfumery, or the art of making perfumes, began in ancient Egypt and was further refined by the Romans and Persians. Perfume reached its peak in England during the reigns of Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. All public places were scented during Queen Elizabeth’s rule since she simply could not tolerate bad smells.
