The art of cologne making began in ancient Mesopotamia around the second millennium BC. Archeologists have discovered what is believed to be the oldest perfume factory ever found in some ruins in Cyprus. This 4,000 year old factory contains mixing bowls, spices, herbs, distills and bottles. Cologne may have had its’ introduction to European society under the command of Queen Elizabeth. She loved the smell of roses and commissioned a special mixture of rose buds and alcohol be made especially for her. Soon, all of Europe fell in love with the smell of perfumes. The country of France was quick to jump into the perfume industry by growing the flowers and herbs needed for its’ manufacture. Today, most perfumes contain a mixture of flower oils. Swiss Army Cologne has a combination more closely to that of the ancient Mesopotamia; using oils from plant leaves, bark, and “woodsy” herbs.
