The word perfume itself derives from Latin PERFUMUS or PER (through) and FUMUS (smoke).
Historically, France is the biggest exporter of fragrance, particularly in the Occitane region, which is home to many fragrant herbs, such as lavender. We continue to use French terms today. There is virtually no difference between perfume and parfum. Parfum is the French term for perfume, so they can be used interchangeably and basically perfume and parfum give the same meaning
Fragrances are complex mixtures of what people in the industry refer to as raw materials. These raw materials can be extracts from natural sources (derived from plant materials, trees, flowers, spices, herbs, animal) or synthetic raw materials (created through chemical synthesis)
Oils are dissolved using distillation process OR using a solvent to preserve a pleasant concoction of scents. The higher the concentration of oils – the greater the strength of the fragrance. The strength determines how long an application of the fragrance lasts on your skin
