A Brief History of Fragrance:

 

Since the beginning of time, fragrance has succeeded in enchanting and capturing the imagination of men and women. So where exactly does fragrance originate from? Fragrance dates back to the ancient world- Egyptians used fragrances as part of their religous cermonies in the belief they could communicate with higher gods through scented smoke-this ritual is responsible for the word perfume-per fumum, Latin for through smoke.

Thousands of years later, fragrance has travelled the path of humankind. Today, in the year 2015, fragrance is still sought by people throughout the world. Fragrance is a tool which transcends all barriers - it communicates regardless of race, language or age.

Finding the right fragrance for you can be a tedious exercise- the avalanche of fragrance products available on the market can make choosing a fragrance a debilitating task. Choosing your fragrance is a personal journey, a journey to be enjoyed, not endured. Your choice of fragrance is a choice personal to you.

Fragrance is a powerful tool, capable of creating a memory. The sense of smell is closely linked to memory, more than any other of our senses. You may wear a fragrance the first time you meet your future husband or wife, your wedding day, the day your first child enters the world- each time you smell this scent again, it will succeed in reigniting the memory of the most special days of your life. Fragrance creates a memory of a person like no other - we can all associate certain scents with our loved ones.

 

Fragrance categories

Fragrances may be differentiated according to the concentration - the intensity of a fragrance is dependent on the concentration of essential oils or perfume oils contained in it.

 
Parfum:
  • highest concentration of perfume oils - 15 - 30%
  • strong scent
  • contains least amount of alcohol - less dehydrating on the skin
  • lasts for up to 6 - 8 hours

 

Eau de Parfum
  • weaker in concentration than pure perfume
  • 15% essential oils and perfumes
  • lasts 4-8 hours

 

Eau de Toilette
  • contains 5 to 8% of perfume oil in solvent
  • carries lighter fragrance
  • lasts for a shorter duration
  • requires reapplication after 2 - 4 hours

Tips for long-lasting fragrance sensation

 

  • Do not rub the fragrance into the skin- this can spoil the head notes and disrupt the scent of the fragrance

 

  • Spray the perfume on the pulse points of your body- behind your ears, at the base of your throat, inside your wrist, inside your elbow, behind your knee.

 

  • Moisturise your skin before applying the perfume - Fragrance will longer on well-moisturised skin as oils on the surface of the skin trap the fragrance notes and cause them to last longer.

 

  • Spray some perfume on your hairbrush - spraying an alcohol- based fragrance directly onto your hair will cause it to dry out.

 

  • Store your perfume in the correct places - ensure your fragrance is kept in a cool and dry place and out of sight of direct sunlight. Avoid storing perfume in the bathroom- this warm and moist area can cause degradation of the aroma of the fragrance.
