For centuries, perfumes have been an integral part of people’s lives. The early Egyptians used perfumed balms to spice up lovemaking, as well as to fill the air with fragrance during religious ceremonies and other special occasions.
The early Europeans used plants like peppermint and rose, which were steeped in oils, and exuded a unique scent. People use perfumes differently; some use it to smell uniquely fresh and sweet, especially when they’re in a date, a romantic dinner, or a black-tie party, and even when in a disco.
The perfume and fragrance industry now has become a $1 billion dollar industry, and it’s believed that on average, women will have at their collection at least 6 different types of perfume, rather than maintain a single fragrance, as they’ll want to use different scents for different occasions.

The fragrance’s top layer will then blend to give a soothing and soft woddy or citrus-like scent. The middle layer meshes a blend of paper whites, orchids and patchouli, which combine to create subtle and softly overpowering floral air.
