Perfumes in history

Izay Ayesha describes some sensational Perfumes in history

Jean-Paul Guerlain once said that “perfume is the most intense form of memory.” Perfumes, in most cases, become symbolic of an individual and he or she is widely recognised by them. Perfumes in history are the closest the human race has come to something celestial and it transports individuals to an ideal world. Amongst the finest things created by the human beings, perfumes are placed in the front ranks and their creators often become legendary characters. Choosing a perfume is a definite human prerogative and this is precisely the reason for the unending proliferation of perfumes that keep on getting created continuously. The perfume portfolio is indeed vast and this vastness testifies to the ingenuity of human taste and refined living. It is widely acknowledged that people tend to stick with their favourite perfumes and remain loyal to it.

Sauvage by Christian Dior
It’s hard to believe that Johnny Depp’s greatest success in recent years has been a fragrance and not a movie. Yet, his face will always be associated with this perfume created by François Demachy in 2015.

A for Men by Thierry Mugler
Jacques Huclier added all kinds of edibles to his creation in 1996. Therefore, in this legend of masculine fragrances, you’ll find elements such as caramel, chocolate, or coffee.

Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani
Light, fresh, elegant, and ideal for summer, ‘Acqua Di Gio’ has dominated the men’s fragrance industry since 1996.

Boss Bottled by Hugo Boss
Hugo Boss has been, for decades, the reference in men’s perfumes. Boss Bottled, launched in 1998, is its best version: a combination that mixes mint, pineapple, cinnamon, and sandalwood, among other elements.

Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier
Created by Francis Kukrdjian in 1995, its bottle is a work of art and its content combines notes of cardamom, pepper, cinnamon, and sage, along with other ingredients that make it an almost alchemical elixir.

One Million by Paco Rabanne
A bottle in the shape of a gold ingot can only lead to success. And that is exactly what happened with this creation by Michel Girard, Christophe Raynaud, and Olivier Pescheux in 2008.

Invictus by Paco Rabanne
An intense, sweet, and woody aroma for a fragrance whose image promotes masculinity and power. It was released in 2013.

Cool Water by Davidoff
Presented in 1988, ‘Cool Water’ is fresh, youthful, and a reference to surfing rebellion, always connected to the ocean.

Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme by Dolce & Gabbana
Its launch, back in 1994, was a real boom. It has been sustained over time, in large part, thanks to David Gandy and his legendary commercial in a white swimsuit. TW
