Perfume History

Perfume history goes back to the Cleopatra, Rome, Greece and the Far East. Francis I brought back Italian customs of wearing scent (1525) and Catherine de Medici brought her own perfumer to France. In the time of Louis XIV (1638-1715), France entered the competition and vied for control the trade with the East for spices and aromatics. They planted aromatics and under royal protection the French perfume industry was born and nurtured. His personal perfumer made a special scent for him each day. In Grasse, perfume existed since the Middle Ages to cover the odor of leather gloves, and was extended to soap made from olive oil produced there. Soon even wigs were powdered with fragrance. The 18th century popularized potpourri in Sèvres porcelain; eau de cologne (originally scented spirits brought back from Cologne during the Seven Years War); blending for more complex fragrances; and crystal perfume bottles. The industry declined during the French Revolution, but was enhanced by Napoleon both through organic chemistry and his own use of several bottles a day!
