Surely you’ve experienced the following situation: you’re on the subway, and suddenly you percieve a seductive fragrance.

This way an expert can use more than 32.000 substances from which he can recognize more than 3.000. Do you know that a perfume can contain 300 different scents? So it is not surprising that the creation of a perfume can last months or even years.

Experts also talk about head and heart notes of which are related to the duration of olfactory perception. The term “perfume” comes from the Latin “per fumum” and means, literally translated, “for the smoke”. It comes from a very old pagan custom: they thought the burned essences will guide the Gods through the smoke towards humans. Today, perfume has not much to do with customs or gods, but rather with business and other profits. The world’s most expensive perfume “only” costs around €136.000.
