Back to Pre Vedic and Vedic periods (1500-600 B.C.), perfumes were utilized mainly for religious and domestic rituals in India. Gradually they became part of human life, used in cosmetics and beauty therapy and later as basics of healing balms called "dhupan".
The second era where perfumes took a new turn was in 1469, when a ruler named Ghiyath Shahi, succeeded to the Sultanate of Malwa. He proposed to give himself up to the pleasures of this world and wrote the "Book of Delights", which is considered a great reference of perfumes, foods, fashion and other forms of pleasure.
