The Art and Science of Scent and Smell
Whether you consider the making of perfume to be an art or a science, it is truly used as an aphrodisiac. Scents and smells can alter how you feel and act. Combinations of aromas can cause mood swings and have you feeling depressed or uplifted. These aromas can also have you feeling sensual and sultry.
Scents and aromas can influence your behavior with surprising results. Itís almost as though youíre engaging in magic. If you take a look at some of the archives of perfumes manufactured in the past, names such as Tabu, Love Potion, Sorcery, Vampire and Voodoo carried names that implied magic Ö sexual magic!
The one main draw back of these perfumes is that they were made with synthetic blends. But thatís the nature of the perfume industry.
If you turn back the hands of time and look into the history of perfumes, blending, scents and aromas, youíll find that the rich were the only ones who enjoyed a sweet sultry blend. And guess what? These perfume blends were made from essential oils, the real essence of the flower, its leaf, root and bark of a given plant.
As mass production of perfumes grew in demand, patience grew thin in the consumer. When you us essential oils to create a perfume blend, the process is one that takes time. Youíre dealing with nature and in nature everything has a time line and seasons. And then youíre dealing with quantity. There are only so many petals that can be produced from a given flower.
But as man would have it, speed becomes an issue and unnatural ways of production kick in. Okay, maybe I should say technology kicks in.
