Perfume Flacons
A fragrant history and the beauty of dressing it up.
The word perfume comes from the Latin per-fumare, meaning to fill with smoke.
Kings, queens and nobility have always enjoyed rituals of
offering fragrant fumes to the gods filled with wishes.
The containers holding the perfume had to have the highest quality of beauty.
These perfume bottles were designed differently through the ages,
leaving with us artistic masterpieces decorated with history.
