Perfume Bottles

There are lots of people that collect perfume bottles, myself included. I have kept every perfume bottle of every perfume that I have owned. I wouldn’t necessarily say that I collect them, but I do like to keep them. There are sites out there that are devoted to people who like to collect and they sell for a couple hundred bucks.

Perfume Print Ads

Almost all magazine and print ads for perfume have a famous person as their spokesperson, or the perfume is actually created by them. I’m not sure if this is supposed to entice the consumer to buy these products but I have noticed the huge similarities that all perfumes have. Continue reading

The Making of Perfume

13 Oct

The Perfume Maker by Ernst Rodolphe

Perfume used to be made from only natural ingredients such as flowers, grasses and spices as well as animal products and oils that make the scent last longer by emitting the scent more slowly. Today there are a lot of synthetic perfumes that use chemicals made up in a lab to substitute for example the animal products. Continue reading

Purchasing Perfume as a Gift

25 Sep

Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to fragrances. Never purchase a perfume just because you like it. Just because you are more drawn to a fragrance, doesn’t mean your loved ones are too. If you know the type of perfume your loved one wears, the easier your purchase will be. Pay attention in case they have mentioned a certain perfume in the past. Also make sure what perfume category she likes. Does she like floral scents or muskier scents? Continue reading

History of Perfume

19 Sep

Definition of Perfume- A pleasing, agreeable scent or odor.

The word perfume comes from the Latin word ‘Parfumare’- to fill with smoke. In the old days people would light incense and aromatic herbs for a pleasant scent during religious rituals.

Ancient Egyptian Perfume Bottle

The Egyptians were the first to use perfume for personal uses by wearing hats with wax on top with perfume inside, and the wax would melt during the day because of the heat and would make a woman smell good all day long. They were also the first people to invent glass and later on perfume bottles. When the Greeks fell in love with the Egyptian fragrances, they invented the first liquid perfume made out of fragrant powder and heavy oils. The Romans bathed up to three times a day in fragrant oils and even bathed their dogs and horses in them. After the Roman Empire fell and Christianity rose, the use of perfume decreased dramatically.

Attract Men & Look Younger

6 Sep

According to the “Early Show” there is a perfume out there that is clinically-proven to attract men and make them flirt with you. The name of the perfume? Eau Flirt by Harvey Prince. They have used scientific proven key scents, such as pumpkin and lavender to lure men in. A smell test conducted by CBS said that it beat Chanel No. 5. And while doing a product search on Google, the description reads that this is the first anti-aging perfume for women. So using this perfume will not only make you appear younger but it will also make men flirt with you. I say nice advertising campaign.

Smell, Memory and Perfume

31 Aug


Certain smells can bring up different kinds of memories of the past and can even trigger your mood. When you first encounter a new smell your brain links it to specific person, place or event. So when you cross paths with that same smell again your brain automatically links it back to the first encounter, whether good or bad. Since you form your own links to different smells, not every smell might bring up a pleasant memory, which is why not everyone likes the same smells. Continue reading
