This workshop, in its second session, will show how perfumery was born in the Middle East, then inspired western countries, to finally come back and survive in the Byzantin Empire at the time perfumery was not a priority. In the meantime, perfumery evolved through extraction improvements and scientific discoveries to come back stronger, and again inspired western countries.
The workshop will investigate how the Middle East played a crucial role in trade and was coveted by many for its perfumery resources. We will cover a period of history going from the Egyptian Empire (3150 BC) to the Muslim Empire's fall (1099 AD). Sessions of the workshop will inspire participants to formulate their own perfume oil, which will be a combination of selected ingredients cooked in order to extract the perfumed molecules which in turn is used as a fragrance.
