International Fragrance Day
There are many different fragrances out there, and each person has a favorite. They’re not all perfumes. Some people love the smell of onions being browned in pans, while others prefer candles in churches. There are also those who simply love certain scents because they remind them of something they love, or make them feel positive. You think a dog that is wet can smell good? You’d be wrong! Many people consider their fragrance to be an integral part of their personality. They spend hours selecting the perfect perfume or cologne, then wear it for years. International Fragrance Day celebrates your favorite fragrance, whatever it may be, and whatever its reasoning.
Certain fragrances have been enjoyed by people for thousands of years. Tapputi was the first known chemist in the world. He was a perfumer who was listed on a stone tablet dating back to Mesopotamia’s 2nd millennium BCE. The Bronze Age was the time when the oldest known perfumery was found on the island Cyprus. This perfumery had an area of more than 4,000m2, which means that it was industrially produced.
The Book of Exodus also mentions a sacred perfume that contains liquid myrrh and fragrant cinnamon. France is the global center for perfume and cosmetic manufacturing. It is not a new idea to appreciate fragrances. International Fragrance Day was established relatively recently to allow us to appreciate the fragrances that play an important role in our lives.
There are many ways to celebrate this day. It all depends on your preferences and hobbies, as well as your general tastes. For those who enjoy fine alcohols, you might want to purchase a bottle of whiskey or wine. Then, swirl the glass around and inhale before drinking. You may prefer natural, delicate scents so why not visit a local florist to purchase fresh flowers for your home or office?
Bake a cake if you are a fan of the smell of freshly baked cakes. If you are a dog lover, you might take your dog for a walk in a park, a roll in mud, or even a swim in the nearby lake. Another option is to simply visit a nearby perfumery to look for something you like. No one said that you had to wear the same perfume all day, no matter how much it is loved. If all else fails, a warm, bubbly bubble bath can help you to enjoy your favorite scent as it floats in the steam.
No matter what you do, our noses are the best. Have a wonderfully fragrant day!
