AB YSUF YAQB IBN ISQ AL-KIND, AL KINDA THE FATHER OF PERFUME

An early Islamic philosopher known for his pioneering work in astronomy, chemistry, logic, psychology and other diverse fields, he's best known for inventing a variety of scented perfume products through his extensive chemical research involving plant compounds. He also wrote the first perfume recipe book, the Kitab Kimiya' al-'Itr (Book of the Chemistry of Perfume), which included the first instructions for the production of camphor.

Francois Coty was both a talented perfumer and a brilliant marketer. He was the first to recognize that an attractive bottle was essential to a perfume's success. Originally collaborating with Baccarat for the packaging of his perfumes, Coty's most famous collaboration was with the great ceramist and jeweler Ren Lalique. Lalique designed the bottles for Coty's early scents, such as Ambre Antique and L'Origan, which became bestsellers. He also designed the labels for Coty perfumes, which were printed on a gold background with raised lettering.

References to perfumes are found in the earliest records of historic civilizations. The ancient Chinese used perfume on their robes and burned incense at funerals. They discovered musk, one of the most valuable perfume agents of all time. The ancient Egyptians also offered incense to the gods and anointed the bodies of the dead pharaohs with odorous oils. Later the use of perfumes spread extensively among both royalty and commoners, and the demand for such materials aided the development of foreign commerce. Herodotus reported that the Babylonians were great consumers of aromatics and perfumed their bodies with the most expensive odors.

The Greeks and Romans both developed the art of perfumery to an extraordinary degree. Hippocrates, father of medicine, mentions the therapeutic value of numerous perfume substances. In Greek mythology, Circe held Odysseus with the aid of perfume, and Helen of Troy acquired beauty through a secret perfume revealed by Aphrodite. The women of Greece use ...more
