A Woman – the World’s first Perfumer!

Let’s celebrate International Fragrance Day

21st March 2018

We have been in love with and enjoying Perfume for thousands of years, from the moment of the first recorded Perfumer, a Lady named ‘Tapputi’ or also referred to as ‘Tapputi – Belatekallim’, which means overseer or keeper of a Palace.

She is mentioned in a tablet dated around 1200 BC in Mesopotamia. In her fragrances she used flowers, oil, Calamus (also knows as Sweet Flag, that resembles the Iris), Cyperus, Myrrh and Balsam. She then added water or other solvents, then distilled and filtered it several times. This is also believed to be the oldest reference to a still.

So, not only is the wonderful Lady the first recorded Perfumer in the World, she was also a Chemist.

From references in the Book of Exodus which describes a sacred perfume that consisted of liquid myrrh, fragrant cinnamon, fragrant cane, and cassia, to the Bronze Age Perfumeries of Cyprus, we have continued our love affair with perfume.

Today on International Fragrance Day, 21st March 2018, why not celebrate the wonderful gift of scent, from your favourite Flower to the bouquet of your most loved Wine or Spirit, freshly baked Bread, to the aroma of a wonderful meal.

The Scents of Life surround us on a daily basis and remind us of the past, the present and the wonderful future to come.

From PAIRFUM London to all Perfume Lovers all over the World, we wish you a “Bouquet-filled Day”. xx
