    ROD 3/23/2006 Nice Fragrance Day FRAGRAN

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    The word "perfume" comes from the Latin words per fume meaning "through
    smoke". This reflects the oldest tradition of burning incense and herbs during
    religious offering. Wearing perfume didn't hit it big until the 17th century when
    perfumed gloves became the rage in France. The court of Louis XV was even named
    "the perfumed court" because scents were applied every day to skin, clothes,
    fans and furniture - mainly because they didn't take very many baths.
