Created from plant, animal and synthetic oils, compounds and solvents, among other ingredients, perfume has evolved extensively throughout the years. Originally, perfume companies made fragrances from natural compounds like vanilla in the early 19th century, but modern-day perfumes include a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients to produce a wide array of scents.

Perfumes and fragrances have also attracted numerous celebrities in contemporary versions with everyone from Britney Spears to the Kardashians creating their own scents.
