Perfume is a mixture of fragrant
      essential oils and/or aroma
  compounds, fixatives, and solvents
used to give the human body, animals,
objects, and living spaces "a pleasant
                 scent."
   Perfumes have been known to exist in some of the
    earliest human civilizations, either through ancient
    texts or from archaeological digs. Modern

    commercial synthesis of aroma compounds such
    as vanilla

    Latin per fumus, meaning "through smoke."
    Perfumery, or the art of making perfumes, began in

The new scheme was created in order to simplify fragrance classification and naming scheme, as well as to show the relationships between each of the individual classes
  • 7. Perfume is described in a musical metaphor as having three sets of notes, making the harmonious scent accord. The notes unfold over time, with the immediate impression of the top note leading to the deeper middle notes, and the base notes gradually appearing as the final stage. These notes are created carefully with knowledge of the evaporation process of the perfume.  Top notes: The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. That is initial impression of a perfume and thus is very important in the selling of a perfume. Also called the head notes.  Middle notes: The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to when the top notes dissipate. The middle note compounds form the "heart" or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. They are also called the heart notes.  Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and "deep" and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application.  The scents in the top and middle notes are influenced by the base notes; as well the scents of the base notes will be altered by the type of fragrance materials used as middle notes. Manufacturers of perfumes usually publish perfume notes and typically they present it as fragrance pyramid, with the components listed in imaginative and abstract terms
  • 10. The traditional classification which emerged around 1900 comprised the following categories: Single Floral: Fragrances that are dominated by a scent from one particular flower; in French called a soliflore, most of them are rose Floral Bouquet: Is a combination of fragrance of several flowers in a perfume compound. Ambered or "Oriental": A large fragrance class featuring the sweet slightly animalic scents combined with vanilla, flowers and woods, which bring to mind Victorian era imagery of the Middle East and Far East. Wood: Fragrances that are dominated by woody scents, typically of agar wood, sandalwood and cedar wood. Patchouli is commonly found in these perfumes. Leather: A family of fragrances which features the scents of honey, tobacco, wood and wood tars in its middle or base notes and a scent that alludes to leather. Chypre (IPA: [ʃipʁ]): Meaning Cyprus in French, this includes fragrances built on a similar accord consisting of bergamot, oak moss, patchouli. This family of fragrances is named after a perfume by François Coty Fougère (IPA: [fu.ʒɛʁ]): Meaning Fern in French, built on a base of lavender, and oak moss. Houbigant's Fougère Royale pioneered the use of this base. Many men's fragrances belong to this family of fragrances, which is characterized by its herbaceous and woody scent.
  • 12. Since 1945, due to great advances in the technology of perfume creation as well as the natural development of styles and tastes; new categories have emerged to describe modern scents: Bright Floral: combining the traditional Single Floral & Floral Bouquet categories. Green: a lighter and more modern interpretation of the Chypre type, with pronounced cut grass, crushed green leaf and cucumber-like scents. Aquatic, Oceanic, or Ozonic: the newest category in perfume history, appearing in 1991 with Christian Dior's Dune. A very clean, modern smell leading to many of the modern androgynous perfumes. Generally contains calone, a synthetic scent discovered in 1966. Also used to accent floral, oriental, and woody fragrances. Fruity: featuring the aromas of fruits other than citrus, such as peach, cassis (black currant), mango, passion fruit, and others. Gourmand ]): scents with "edible" or "dessert"-like qualities. These often contain notes like vanilla, tonka bean and coumarin, as well as synthetic components designed to resemble food flavors.
  • 13. Citrus: An old fragrance family that until recently consisted mainly of "freshening" eau de colognes, due to the low tenacity of citrus scents. Development of newer fragrance compounds has allowed for the creation of primarily citrus fragrances.
  • 14. Perfume have been with us for as long as humans have walked the earth, first in the form of herbs and flowers, later in more sophisticated forms such as fragrant oils and incense.  Perfume historians believe that they found evidence of the use of perfume 3,500 years ago when they saw a series of murals in Queen Hatshepsut’s temple in Thebes. These showed an Egyptian fleet sailing off to get myrrh and other exotic aromatics from the Land of Punt.  In the early Middle Ages the Arabs would mix musk with the mortar used to build new mosques and palaces in order to make them scented.  Europe did not use perfume much until the sixteenth century when Catherin de Medici came from Italy to marry the future king. She wore gloves of perfumed leather and suddenly everybody wanted this. The best place to get these gloves was from Grasse (France) which soon became the perfume capital of the world.  The first designer to “marry” clothes with perfume was Paul Poiret. He believed that a well-dressed woman was a fragrant one, perfume adding to her glamour. The couturiers would give their clients little bottles of perfumes as gifts, and then later on they would begin to sell perfume to their clients within their store, some found that they could make more money selling perfume than dresses.
