Perfumes are poetic, natural and sometimes quite soothing. They are here since the earliest of civilizations and their production hinges on essential oils, compounds and solvents that are all derived from plant and animal sources. In the late 1800s, modern perfumes were introduced once man developed the capacity to synthesize compounds in lab. Manufacturers have come up with different scents over time according to need.
