Be aware of everything

Perfumery, like everything on earth, has its own history. Here are some interesting facts about perfumes. Even in the days of Ancient Egypt, interest in refined aromas appeared; ancient found sources have a mention of perfumes thousands of years ago. Since then, there have been many transformations in the bouquet of perfumes; mankind has turned the nice fascinating hobby of a few into a giant perfume industry for all. Nowadays, more than six thousand units of raw materials can be counted in the production of perfumes. Experienced chemists and botanists make tremendous efforts to obtain some components. For example, to produce one kilogram of rose oil, a ton of petals is processed. This is one of the most expensive natural ingredients in perfumery. Its cost is very high and is constantly growing. Also among the expensive components include adding iris to perfumes. Its cost is about forty thousand dollars per kilogram.


An interesting fact is that some of the flowers do not have any aroma until they are combined with other components. And only in this case their smell is revealed and represents a memorable unusual combination.


Oak moss, cloves, peppermint and cedar oil can retain aroma. They are used as fixatives. But musk karga can be attributed to the most expensive ingredients, and its cost is about sixty thousand US dollars, so it is used only in the production of the most expensive perfumes.


The pricing of perfumes is traditionally influenced by the quantity and cost of raw materials used. And the more components involved in the creation of the product, the greater its value.


Aldehydes are often found in aroma compositions. By themselves, they do not smell very nice, have a smell of something rotten. But in combination with various components, they become very pleasant AND THIN.


The design of bottles is not cheap and not  simple at all. It costs no small money. Therefore, there are brands that buy ready-made bottles, making only minor changes in the selection of colors for the bottle or the original cap.


The price of perfume also includes the costs of creating the fragrance itself, the cost of its production and composition, manufacturing and transport costs,  packaging, as well as advertising. That is why the fragrance itself is worth no more than thirty percent of the total cost of perfumes.


It is believed that the same fragrance sounds differently depending on the concentration. Earlier this fact was excluded. But from now on, this method has been introduced into the concept for the promotion of perfumes. This is nothing more than a marketing move to attract customers who are interested in learning something new about their favorite perfumes. And there is an interesting fact - we hear the aroma only when we inhale, when we exhale it disappears.


Nice fragrances are not only necessity for modern common people, but also are the results of the hard scientists labour to create them and preserve. To make perfumes live as long as it is possible Osmotheque Perfume Library was created in 1990. At its disposal are about two thousand fragrances and 170 unknown formulas for the production of perfumes. But it should be a new and interesting separate story.
