History in Drops is a brand entirely dedicated to interpreting the passage of time in perfumery.
And through the author, Daniel Josier, he offers us his own vision and interpretation of the different eras lived by the fragrances contained in the six volumes that compose the collection.
3500 years ago, in Mesopotamia, the Sumerians created a very advanced civilization, in the development of canals, agriculture and ointments, and from there, came the first distillations of oils, and the birth of perfumes. From the hand of two women, Taputti and her assistant, Ninu, who made aromatic oils for the Sumerian king.
Here is a recreation of the most used notes at that time.
