history of perfumePerfume is the substance and product of the humankind that is closely interweaved with the perception of the scent and person through it. The history of perfume is the magic fairy tale overgrown with incredible myths and legends. The celebrated fragrances capture hearts; deeply penetrate the memory as the memory of childhood. Such memories make us bring back the memory of those images and feelings neglected since the time they were introduced to us. So, did the perfumers who created such incredible fragrances suppose that their products will outlive and become the base perfume in the 21st century?

Classic fragrances

In spite of technologies used lately in perfumery and challenges to make the cheaper production, when natural components are replaced by the synthetic additives, the classic fragrances come as the foundation for group of scents. A hundred years passed and still, such fragrances strike the fancy and demanded by women. The classic perfume ranks highly in the Ten Bestselling Perfume in the 21st century. Perfumes like Guerlain Jicky, Coty Chypre and Guerlain Mitsouko, Shalimar by Guerlain and Chanel №5 appeared as first scents to create new groups of scents and entering into new epoch. Each single perfume is the core of the image, the style of eternity they will exist.

Jicky Perfume

It is deemed the ancestor of all aldehyde scents popular today. It was Jicky Perfume but not Chanel №5 that headed the aldehyde group fragrances. Guerlain, one of three legendary perfumers of the epoch, created the Jicky perfume. As the legend says, the perfume was named to honor a beautiful red-haired girl, Emmanuel, loved by the young Guerlain, and later his wife.  Guerlain called her Jicky for her impetuous temper and furious energy.

The fragrance is unique for the first multiple scent in the history of perfumery. Floral compositions were in favor until Guerlain was introduced. Yet, coumarin, the first synthetic product, was first used in the fragrance. In general, it is similar to the fern but produced synthetically. And the perfume was launched to be the father of such perfume and unisex fragrances. The fragrance paved its triumphal way into the 20th century.

Mitsouko Perfume

Guerlain House continued experimenting with blending synthetic and natural components in this elegant all-level fragrance. The perfume was called to honor the heroine of the novel Battle by Claude Farrure. The word «mitsouko» means «mystery» or «secret» in Japanese language. The fragrance was launched in the bottle of unbelievable beauty by Baccarat that became the worthy package for the mysterious scent. In the middle of the 20th century the basic composition of the fragrance with the note of the delicate acerbity of the oak moss was replaced resulted by the decision of the Association of Perfumers. In spite of this fact, the great grandson of legendary Guerlain revived the composition using new components as the reputed perfumer.

Chypre Perfume

This fragrance gave rise to the chypre or the cypress class of perfume. It became the base for strong scents with citric notes with the hue of oak moss and patchouli. It was named by its key components as chypre or cypress in English. Women were fascinated with this masculine scent.

Shalimar Perfume

Shalimar is the real legend of the East by the reputed Guerlain House. It was named afterthefamous Love Garden in India built for the favorite wife of the padishah Shakh-Djakhan. Thefamous Tadj-Makhal was also devoted to the padishah’s wife, by the way. Unlike many other oriental spicy compositions, Shalimar opens gradually on the skin like the Indian lotus opens in the dawn. The stunning perfume was presented packed in the Baccarat bottle. Until now either bottle or the composition has undergone sea changes.

In 2001 the fragrance by Guerlain was acknowledged as the best launched classic scent at «Fifi Awards».

Chanel №5 Perfume

The delicate mademoiselle Coco presented the well-known floral and aldehyde scent to the whole world for admiration, called Chanel №5. The story tells that the composition of perfume was created by mistake of the perfumer who added too many aldehydes to components. But the very mistake with the strong scent of aldehyde notes was liked by Coco to give her name to the fragrance. As the critics in perfume industry suppose, this fragrance has been considered as the most ambiguous since there is no a single person indifferent to it.

It is proved in practice that scents created by brilliant people with the heart of the epoch become classic to live in hearts of women.
