Many perfumes are blends of flower and plant oils, animal substances, synthetics, alcohol, and water. In ancient times the Egyptians soaked fragrant woods and resins in water and oils and then rubbed their bodies with the liquid. The Romans use to wear a garland of flowers, and also hang scented plants inside to sweetenthe air. The development of distillation by the Arabs in the seventh century made the productions of essential fragrant waters possible. Perfumes are of three major substances, the plant substance, animal substance, and the synthetic substance. Plant substance: The substance that gives sweet smelling plants their pleasant odor called essential oils. Animal Substance: The substance that slows the evaporation of perfume oilsand makes the smell long lasting. Synthetic Substance: The substance that accounts for the amount of items used in the perfume industry. These substances can be obtained from natural sources or coal tar.
