Perfumery history

Curious facts:

On average, from 15 to 60 different fragrances are added to modern perfumes. Their bouquet is 10–25% by weight of perfume, and in some it reaches 50%.

In 2006, the French trading house Galeries Lafayette released a collection of perfumes based on the famous novel “The Perfume” by Patrick Suskind. Among the 15 little flakonchik there is the "smell of a virgin" from the eighth chapter of the novel, or, for example, "the smell of Paris of the XVIII century" - from the seventh.

According to one of the versions, the perfume “Red Moscow” was created in the image and likeness of the “Favorite Bouquet of the Empress” fragrance, which in 1913 was invented for Maria Fedorovna by the son of French soapmaker Augustus Michel. A less popular version is that Red Moscow was created in the 1920s with the participation of Pauline Pearl.
