About fūm

The word perfume comes from the Latin phrase "per fumum," meaning "through smoke." The history of perfume is ancient and honorable. Studies have found that as early as 4000 B.C., aromatic substances were burned around the world for sacred purposes. The fragrant smoke was thought to carry messages to spirits and deities. This is where fūm began.
