Now we get to the Hanukkah perfumes. Well, if you're lucky (and your spouse/or special someone) just happens to have an empty credit card or two) you may end up with eight new bottles of fragrance by the last night of the holiday, one for each night of the holiday. Most importantly however is the realization that many of the ingredients used in 164 BCE as anointing oils (perfumes) for ceremonial purposes and also by citizens to help mask the overwhelming scent of day to day life, sweat, dirt, barnyard type odors and of course effluvia, are still in use today. The Talmud (the Jewish “rule book” if you will) stresses the importance of scenting by stating “Fragrance is that which the soul benefits from, and the body does not.", and offers 5 different prayers for various scent genres i.e; floral, woods and bark, herbs etc… and a generic blessing for other unattributed scents… I present "The Eight (Plus One) Hanukkah Perfumes, all still use a predominant ingredient from over 2000 years ago…
Happy Hanukkah!! The last night is tonight December 20!!!
