The perfume industry is making millions because people love to endulge lavishly in pleasant scents
Perfumes or scents are gained from different sources
We distinguish animal and plant scents.
Animal: Musk is the most common animal scent
It is gained from the sexual glands of the musk taurus
It is mainly added to heavy perfumes and is said to have
distictive aphrodisiac effects
same can be said about Ambergris, a secret of the Whale

There are etheric oils made from
Blossoms - like Roses, Yasmin or Lavender
Roots - like Angelica or Kalmus
Leaves - like Thyme, Melissa or Sage
Wood - like Sandal, Cedar or Rosewood
Fruits - like Anise, Cummin, or Coriander (Cilantro)
Barks - like Vanilla, Cinnamon
Resins - like Frankincense, or Myrrh
