History of oriental perfumes
Evoking the history of oriental perfumes means going back to the history of perfume and going back to the beginnings of the first civilisations, in 1700 BC. The Egyptians, the princesses of the Orient, the oriental dancers... perfumed themselves and smeared their bodies. There were very elaborate customs in perfumery and cosmetics. The basis of the products was frankincense, myrrh, oud and oriental woods. Eastern countries, in addition to Egypt, have developed great knowledge through several types of products that are at the origin of perfumery, such as benzoin, Tolu balms...
Oriental fragrances belong to the amber fragrance family. The origin of amber is found in the sea. Sperm whales expel a viscous, greyish to black liquid which, once dried, delivers the well-known scents of wood, marine musk , warm and voluptuous.
The fragrances of the Orient make you travel, dream of the land of the Thousand and One Nights. It is easy to match an oriental water with the olfactory notes of our most gourmet dishes and spices such as honey, cinnamon, Tonka bean or vanilla.
It was in the 20th century that the fragrance of oriental perfume became all the rage in Europe, then in France in the world of fashion and perfumery. It reveals the woman of passion, of character and brings her a wild dimension.
