It’s not because they are very temperamental. This is a misunderstanding. (This rumor is like when the Chinese thought that the British could not go ashore and the feet could not bend.) The body odor will vary from individual to individual but not from the race. Large differences, hygienic conditions and cleaning habits are the most important factors affecting body odor.
Fashion trends, etc. can be understood through film and television programs, but whether the men and women on the screen use perfume or perfume, but can not directly know from the TV screen, so some Chinese who have a certain age and good economic income I don’t want to buy a shirt with thousands of dollars, but I never buy a perfume of a certain grade. They don’t use the perfume (spice/fragrance) at all, and they don’t know how to use perfume. It is also a kind of etiquette to let yourself be happy.
Spices are extremely important trade goods in ancient Arab countries. The ancient Roman Empire (present-day Italy) in the Mediterranean region swept the Asian-African continent, and the natural spices were also included in the custom of the Roman Empire itself. Today's Western Europe is actually a universal application of Greek and Roman culture, so perfume is a must for them to dress and eat.
Cultural exchanges between the Mediterranean and the two rivers have always been very active, although historically and even today they are very active and bloody; the French honour of the perfume capital is extremely fortunate.
The relationship between humans and spices should be traced back to the ancient Egyptian era. The artifacts unearthed in the pyramids can confirm this; the history of the use of spices by Arabs is also very long. The ancient Arab Sheba kingdom was flourishing because of the frankincense trade. The price was once equal to gold. Later, as the frankincense was no longer used in Islamic prayer rituals, the ancient Shiba kingdom gradually became more and more, but even today, the legend (the latest archaeological discovery has a lot of grandeur may be the old Shiba five countries). Traces) The Queen of Sheba is still the pride of the Arabs. On the Silk Road, there are precious monuments left by the Spice Traders.
According to historical data, our exchanges with Central Asia during the Tang Dynasty were relatively close, and at that time Chinese people's luxury love for spices far surpassed today. Spice making processes such as distillation separation are created by Arabs. Unfortunately, there is no relevant contribution to the perfume manufacturing process in China. No matter ancient or today, Chinese people still don't know much about spices.
Therefore, the famous perfume brands we have seen today are all from Europe and the United States. However, I believe this will change. Like Japan and South Korea, we will gradually have a national makeup brand in China, and there are already domestic brands trying to create a middle and upper-end perfume brand.
