 Journey into the world of perfumery

A bit of history

The history of perfumery began in ancient times in Egypt – the country of the pyramids. It is in Egypt that you need to look for the secrets of creating the first incense.
The very first fragrances had not so much aesthetic as religious significance. They were used in various rituals, setting the minds of people to communicate with the gods. In ancient Egypt, there were many local cults dedicated to certain deities, of which there were quite a lot.

1Aromas at that time played a special role, they accompanied a person in life and saw them off to another world. With the help of aromatic oils, they honoured the gods and performed ablutions during prayers. The composition of incense was supposed not only to emphasise the individuality of a person, but also to convey to the gods his thoughts and intentions.

Initially, Egyptian perfumery used natural plant aromas, such as aromas of myrrh, frankincense, cypress, juniper, mastic tree. These fragrances were especially revered in the temples, they were considered the best means for uplifting the soul. In those days, for the production of aromas, technologies such as pomace, digestion of plants were used. The process of steam distillation, which produces the best essential oils, was still unknown to the ancient Egyptians. To flavour the air, fragrant resins, fruits, wood, and spices were used in the form of small balls suspended over a fire source. In the city of the Sun, Heliopolis, rituals were performed dedicated to the god Ra: different incense was used three times a day, at sunrise – amber resin, at noon – myrrh, at sunset – a mixture of several components, including myrrh, saffron, juniper, fenugreek and others incense, this mixture was called “kufi”, which means “welcome to the gods”.

Aromatic oils were also used for medicinal purposes. Pharaoh Amenhotep III
(1405-1367 BC) wrote, “Oil is a medicine for the body.” The smell of myrrh was clearly felt at the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamen. Some recipes for aromatic compositions are carved in hieroglyphs on the walls of ancient perfume laboratories, and some of them are still used today.2

Aromas were used not only for religious purposes and to cure ailments. They were simply enjoyed, with them they experienced a feeling of love, joy, aromas had the properties of aphrodisiacs, they seduced, enchanted and excited. But the desire to like was expensive. One gram of myrrh was equivalent in value to the same weight of gold.

The ancient Egyptians were known for producing luxurious, exotic fragrances. Entire cities specialised in the production of fragrances, in particular Alexandria and Mendes. Perfumes were supplied throughout the Mediterranean.

Ancient Egyptian perfumes were mixtures of fat and incense and were placed on the head at the start of the day. Gradually, the fat melted under the hot sun, the essential oils evaporated, exuding a pleasant aroma. Incense was also applied to the body.

3Queen Cleopatra was a skilled creator of fragrances, who always smelled fragrant with fragrances created by her own hands. It is known from history that the first meeting of Cleopatra and Antony was preceded by her arrival on a ship, the sails of which were saturated with incense and their aroma conquered Anthony’s heart from afar.
Since there was little vegetation in hot Egypt, most of the aromatic substances had to be imported from other countries. For example, myrrh and frankincense – from Arabia, sandalwood – from India or Ceylon, cinnamon and vanilla – from Libya and the Middle East.

Raw materials for modern perfumery

The raw materials for the production of fragrant substances are flower petals, leaves, fruits and roots of ethereal plants. Essential oils are obtained from them by steam distillation. Some of them are used as independent fragrant substances, for example, rose, violet, geranium, sandalwood oil. Some are used as infusions, such as patchouli leaves, coriander seeds. These plant-derived ingredients make up the bulk of the perfume. To fix the aroma, fragrant substances of animal origin are used, which include amber and musk. Although raw materials of animal origin are more expensive than other components, it is its presence (or absence) that determines the quality of perfumes.

Synthetic fragrances are also chemically produced from plant ingredients, which makes it possible to obtain aromas that have no analogues in nature.
Plants from which essences for aromatic compositions are produced are grown on special plantations and cultivated according to ancient technologies, without the use of chemical fertilisers.
4Also, according to ancient technologies, the production of oils takes place.
Modern Egypt continues to use all these unique natural ingredients in its perfume recipes and even exports some of them to Europe.

It is rare that someone who has been in Egypt does not bring with him a few glass bottles with aromas as a souvenir. Many of them have a purely national flavour. The aromas of Egyptian oils are quite persistent, felt on the wrists the next day and even after taking a shower. On clothes, fragrances remain even after washing.

Essences are bottled in glass bottles, simple, elegant and inexpensive, which allows you to buy more fragrances without overpaying for the luxury of bottles.
But for beauty lovers, there are very beautiful crystal and inlaid bottles, as well as unusual handmade glass bottles.

5Essences can be easily turned into perfumes by mixing them with alcohol (96%). Fans of experimentation can even create their own perfume compositions by mixing several aromatic oils and adding an alcohol base to them. For example, you can take amber (or sandalwood) oil and mix it with flower oil or with a ready-made perfume composition.

Here you can find a variety of floral fragrances. Here are some of them:

Lotus symbolises prosperity, rebirth, purity and enlightenment.

6 These essences should be applied to the pulse points of the wrists, crooks of the elbows, temples, neck and behind the ears. You can use them without mixing with each other. You can add fragrant essences to the cream, shampoo, bath.
