National Fragrance Day

National Fragrance Day is an American holiday dedicated to fragrance and perfumes. Each person has their own fragrance that they can enjoy indefinitely. And they can be quite detached from perfumery as such: the smell of kebab roasting on coals, for example. Sometimes pleasant scents can seem completely shocking: for example, quite a few people find the smell of car exhaust attractive. The list is very, very long! The holiday is celebrated annually on March 21.


Fragrances have been enjoyed since the ancient world. This is when, according to historians, the first perfumes began to appear. There is no reliable information about the creation of National Fragrance Day. It doesn’t matter, because this holiday is a great excuse to indulge in a couple of new fragrances that will perfectly complement your image and give you confidence.

The creator of the spirits is considered Tapputi, who lived in Mesopotamia as early as the 2nd millennium B.C. Information about it was found on a stone tablet during archaeological excavations. There is a lot of information about the production of perfumes in Cyprus during the Bronze Age. Moreover, it was carried out on an industrial scale.

For a long time, perfume was available only to the upper classes. It was mainly used by women. It became very popular during the Middle Ages, when hygiene was a problem, but smelling good was a necessity.

In today’s world there is a large selection of perfumes in different price categories, so everyone can find the right option!
