Patchouli Amber Perfume
What is Natural Perfume?
Before synthetic fragrances were developed, perfume was created solely with essential oils and other aromatics that were distilled from nature. Modern perfumes that you'd buy at the department store fragrance counter are created with a complex blend of petroleum derived aromatic hydrocarbons and some isolated essential oils and constituents. These mixtures are diluted in a base of volatile refined alcohol at decreasing strengths to create either a perfume extract, perfume, or cologne. The most ancient perfumes on the other hand were created solely from nature-derived resins, oils and botanicals. Rather than alcohol, the carrier for the scent was often an oil, fat or wax.
Ancient perfumes would be made by steeping fragrant flowers, leaves and spices in an oil such as olive oil. Through straining the oil and recharging it repeatedly with fresh botanicals, increasing levels of aroma strength would be attained. Solid perfumes were created with seed and nut butters or a base of beeswax and/or resins melted into the aromatic infused oil. When the mixture cooled it would be semisolid at room temperature but melt when smoothed over the skin.
