Perfumes are known to exist in some of the earliest human civilizations. Modern perfumery emerged  in the late 19th century, with  the commercial synthesis of aroma compounds such as vanillin or coumarin. The world’s first recorded chemist is considered to be a woman named Tapputi, a perfume maker mentioned in a cuneiform tablet dating back to the 2nd millennium BC in Mesopotamia. Her method was to distil flowers, oil, and calamus with other aromatics. After this process she filtered and put them back in the still several times. In 2005, a group of archaeologists discovered what are believed to be the world’s oldest perfumes in Pyrgos, Cyprus. They date back more than 4,000 years, and were discovered in an ancient perfumery. Our list for today is going to include ten cheap online perfumes.
