The French Whisperer
Sleep and ASMR Storyteller
In this ASMR/bedtime story, I tell you about the origins and evolution of cosmetics and perfume, from prehistory to our time. We explore how ancient cultures developed cosmetics and how important they were in reflecting social order and beauty standards. I also tell you about the history of perfume, from the first known scent extraction equipment and the first perfume maker (Tapputi in Mesopotamia) to the diversification of ingredients and techniques that led to the modern perfume industry.
