Perfume products are substances that emit pleasant aromas. While fragrant liquids used for the body are generally referred to as perfumes, the product may actually be a perfume, a perfume oil mixture or blend, a cologne or toilet water. Perfumes are classified based on the ratio of aroma to alcohol and water. Regardless of how they are classed, all perfumes are characterized by their top notes, heart notes, and base notes.
Perfumes have been used for thousands of years. The word perfume comes from the Latin words for through smoke, per fume. Many of the early uses of perfumes were connected to religious ceremonies and involved burning incense or herbs. The pleasant smell of citrus oil squeezed from the rind of a fruit onto the skin was an early form of body perfume. The nineteenth and twentieth centuries were a turning point in perfume manufacturing. Coty, now the top U.S. perfume manufacturer, was established in Paris in 1904 and is considered to be the founder of the modern perfume industry. Perfume making was influenced, like all manufacturing, by the spread of automation, the development of mass production, and advancements in chemistry. Modern chemistry laid the foundations of perfumery as we know it today.
