Perfume is a fragrant liquid product blended with natural and artificial odoriferous substances. It was first noted in 2000 BCE. By the eighteenth century, perfumery had reached its apogee in Paris. At the same time other countries were also celebrated for its perfume industry. Court ladies in the late period of the Qing dynasty usually used Western perfume including this fine bottle which was one of the best perfumes.
