The fabulous history of Perfume in Grasse

Grasse is originally renowned for its tanneries and glove making. In the Middle Ages, Grasse leathers were sold all over Europe. But the methods of tanning are very smelly.

Indeed to tan leather is often used urine of animal origin That is why the nobles constantly complain about the smell of their gloves, until the day when a craftsman decides to immerse his achievements in scented essences.

From the sixteenth century, the gloves will be perfumed and perfumer skill will develop in the country of Grasse. The territory is particularly conducive to the trade of nascent perfume. Indeed, it grows a lot of very fragrant plants. The peasants will begin to distil their plants themselves to sell the essence and supplement their income.

Among these plants, we find orange, lavender, cassia, myrtle and pistachio lentisk.

At the seventeenth century, new plants will be grown. They are often imported, like jasmine, from India, or tuberose from Italy. The perfume rose begins to be grown at this time too.
