Perfumes started as a mixture of different oils and aromas that were first made in ancient Egypt. Although ingredients vary from which part of the world it was created, the main purpose for it in the old times was to cast away evil spirits. Modern perfumery began in the early 19th century and they used synthetic materials to make it less expensive. One of the most timeless scents and is a great example of classic perfumes is Coco Chanel’s Chanel no. 5. It is still the most demanded perfume since it was sold in 1921. The inventor, the legendary fashion icon, Coco Chanel created her own perfume because she was so bored with the perfume back in the early 1920’s. The perfumes back then were so dull that she thought it doesn’t fit the essence of being a true woman. Thus, she made her own scent made from different kinds of flower extracts and ignited the entire world that a great perfume doesn’t need a fancy packaging. The next timeless perfume is Miss Dior created by no less than the fashion mogul, Christian Dior. Putting on this scent is like wearing a haute couture gown with its sophistication and everlasting scent. Miss Dior was launched after his remarkable New Look collection in 1947 and had brought back Paris as one of the fashion capital of the world after World War 2. And the last perfume would be No. 1 by Clive Christian. Crown Perfumery which was named after Queen Victoria herself, was bought by Clive Christian in 1999. He was inspired to make a perfume that would best describe royalty. His perfume was made by the world’s most expensive and luxurious ingredients thus making it the world’s most expensive perfume. It has a versatile scent that suits both men and women making it the most luxurious perfume to have.
Perfumes are nostalgic. Whenever you smell a scent it brings back so many memories that were trapped in the time capsule. A classic perfume will not only make you smell good but it will take you back to that moment where you first smelled it and once again relive that memory.
