The origin of perfumery has its roots in the Egyptian culture. The Egyptians used it during their religious ceremonies and burials and later as their daily wear. But how do you decide the right amount of perfume to spritz? Too little perfume and it gets hard to notice while too much is intoxicating like smoke. So, just spritz it on your pulse points so it gets activated with your body heat and leaves you smelling fresh all day long.
Everybody has their own identity and their own zodiac sign similarly Egyptians used to believe that scents were the sweat of their sun god.
