Fragrances act directly to our sensibility. In ancient times fragrant incenses were sacrificed to the gods to keep negative elements away or simply to spread a sense of personal well-being.
Which perfumes were used in the ceremonies and in the private homes? Where did they come from and how they were used? Using mortars and pestles in the Roman way, we process herbs and resins to make our own incense. You can take your handmade mixtures home with you afterwards – together with many tips for how to use them.
