Perfume has been used in religious ceremony and also in medicine, for it was believed to have the power to ward off illness. Elaborately chased silver pomanders were carried during times of plague. This book traces the history of the scent bottle from the alabaster containers of ancient Egypt to mass-produced commercial bottles.
