Since ancient times, perfume has always been associated with a form of witchcraft. The scent fascinates and bewitches us, as when we receive a spell. He is enigmatic and intoxicating. So where does this legendary idea that a perfume can bewitch us come from? Is he really a bulwark against bad spells? Let's see together why, since the dawn of time, perfume has been linked to witchcraft and what it symbolizes.
Witchcraft: perfume, between good and evil
The perfume is not yesterday, we know. But, over the centuries, perfume was considered a divine messenger to protect us against external aggressions. Keep us away from bad luck and counter bad spirit. A way to wrap yourself in its wake to calm down and regain a certain comfort. Some even saw the scent as to protect us from disease, or even to cure us. The perfume therefore protected us from evil.
In the Greco-Roman civilization in particular, perfumes were a means of communicating with the Gods. Thus, burning incense was a way of coming into direct contact with them by paying homage to them. If the food was considered as an offering to satisfy their hunger, the wine to put an end to their thirst, the perfume, him, had for mission to communicate with the spirits.
Perfumes that bewitch
You should know that in the Middle Ages, witchcraft was very present. If one believed that the perfume protected us from evil, others used it as a magic potion to cast evil spells. A formula where several ingredients were juxtaposed that only a witch had the recipe.
Others saw women as evil beings. The scent was then seen as a camouflage clue. One way to hide your body odor from everyone's eyes. This woman with a sensual and bewitching scent was seen as a witch. Mystery and seduction, the witch hunt was then open.
