The magic of a fragrance

Perfumes have been a part of humans for a very long time. According to history books, the world's first chemist is a woman named Tapputi, who is mentioned in Babylonian tablets. She has been a prominent figure in the Mesopotamian Royal Palace and has discovered some groundbreaking techniques to extract fragrances which have paved the way for modern perfume making. The world's oldest perfumery has been discovered on the island of Cyprus. The industrial-scale perfumery which has been discovered on the island is over 4000 years old. Therefore we can safely assume that wearing perfumes has been an ancient practice. There is mention of perfumes and fragrances in many Indian history books as well.

Have you ever wondered why people of many centuries and millennia have been drawn to these magical concoctions? And still, are?
