World’s Most Expensive Perfumes

Gods create the odours, the men manufacture the perfumes. Good fragrance lingers in memory and sometimes memory lingers with fragrance. A perfume is like a piece of clothing, a message, a way of presenting oneself, a costume that differs according to the one who wears it.

Just like a musical chord, a perfume chord contains four essences, or notes, carefully selected for their harmonic affinity.  The head chord contains the first impression, lasting a few minutes before giving way to the heart chord, the theme of the perfume, lasting several hours. Finally, the base chord, the trail of the perfume, lasts several days.

Until the beginning of Egypt’s Golden Age, perfumes were used only in ritual for gods or pharaohs. Many Egyptians put perfumes in their tombs. Two talented Arabian chemists: Jabir ibn Hayyan, born 722 and Al-Kindi who established the perfume industry. Al-Kindi, was the real founder of perfume industry as he carried out extensive research and experiments in combining various plants and other sources to produce a variety of scent products.
