Artist's Description

The first form of perfume was incense. Incense was first discovered by the Mesopotamians about 4,000 years ago. Ancient cultures burned many kinds of resins, bums and woods at their religious ceremonies. They often soaked the fragrant woods and resins in water and oil, and rubbed their bodies with the liquid. They also embalmed the dead with these perfumes.> Early Europeans used many different containers to store their perfumes.> They used glass, gold, silver, porcelain, gems, pearls, semi-precious stones and various shells. Perfume was commonly used in the form of incense.> Some incense burners consisted of a container held from chains. It was swung like a pendulum during Mass in the Christian Church. There were also stationary incense burners used in Churches.> Some perfume containers were designed to be worn. Semi-precious stones held perfumes and were pinned to clothing. Silver earrings were worn that contained perfume soaked fabric inside them.> Many containers were designed to be hung around the neck, from a belt, or from a finger ring.> Perfume bottles were always handcrafted and designed by artists, jewelers and goldsmiths. Many bottles were designed to be worn, or displayed on a table.> Nefertiti, an Egyptian beauty from an earlier dynasty, surrounded herself with perfume: containers with myrrh, flacons filled with sweet oils, and handsomely ornamented jars of unguents.> Things have certainly changed in our world of perfume bottles since this time in history wouldn’t you agree ladies.. far less decadence …
