Wearing Perfume has Many Health Benefits

Perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils or aroma compounds, fixatives, and solvents to provide a pleasant scent to the human body. Ancient texts and archaeological evidence show the use of perfumes in some of the earliest civilizations.

Modern perfumery started in the 19Th century with the synthesis of aroma compounds such as vanillin or coumarin that allowed the composition of smells that were previously unattainable from the natural aromatics alone.

Perfume Bottles are a Thing of Beauty

I don't know why I always feel happy to see perfume containers or bottles. Most of them are colorful, shiny, and transparent having designed tops. It gives pleasure just to hold them in hands!

There is some aesthetic connection between perfumes and fragrances. The perfume bottle holds liquid perfume that is crystal clear, mild colored, and smells awesome.

The container/bottle attracts people who have an aesthetic sense. I like to preserve empty perfume bottles that look attractive just for pleasure.
