Summary

This volume is the result of more than 10 years' research into Persian culture from the Achaemenid period (559 B.C.) until the end of the Safavids' time (1722 A.D.). Its focus is what the sources tell us about aromata (fragrances), how the fragrances were used in daily life, and how they are reflected in Persian literature, especially in poetic language. The study consists of four parts: Part I: Aromata of animal provenance (ambergris, castor, musk, zibet); Part II: Aromata of vegetable matter (aloe wood, camphor, costus, nard, rose water, saffron, sandalwood); Part III: Mixed fragrances (ointments, pastilles, powders); Part IV: Aromatic resins, balsams, oils and mannas.
