The history of fragrance can be traced back to ancient civilizations such as Egypt, Mesopotamia, and India, where scented oils, resins, and botanicals were used for various purposes, including religious rituals, personal adornment, and even embalming. Incense played a crucial role in many ancient societies, acting as a medium to connect with the divine, purify spaces, and promote a sense of harmony and well-being.
