Arab perfumes: history of their origin

- Categories : Perfumery

The art of perfumery has its roots in ancient Egypt , but it was in the Arabian culture that innovative techniques for fragrance making were perfected and developed .

The Arabs not only mastered the art of creating exquisite perfumes, but also established a thriving trade in scents and spices . In this article, we will explore the fascinating history of Arabian perfume and its enduring influence on the world of perfumery.

History of perfume in Arabia

The origins of perfume in Arabia go back to antiquity, where the Arabs discovered the aromatic properties of various plants and resins. Influenced by Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures, they began to use scented oils in religious rituals and as part of their daily lives.

The Arabs perfected the techniques of distillation and extraction of essences to obtain high quality essential oils. They were the ones who perfected the alembic to distill alcohol, which they used to obtain the base of the perfume. This led to rapid expansion, trade and popularity in the Middle Ages and a revolution in the way perfumes are made.

In addition, they were the first to use alcohol in the elaboration of perfumes, which allowed a greater fixation and duration of the fragrances.

The arrival of perfumery in Spain

With the arrival of the Arabs in Spain , perfume took a new route: it reached France, a country that knew how to industrialize it.

Despite the expulsion of the Arabs from the Iberian Peninsula, the perfumers had the privilege of remaining in Spain. If they had left the country, they would have taken their secrets with them: the unique formulas for the creation of their fragrances.
