In mammals, like humans or mice, personal scents help distinguish individuals from one another, and can even help determine a future mate. Through the course of history, humans have created ways to enhance or even mask their own personal scent with perfumes or fragrances. Archaeologists have even found perfume makers dating back to Mesopotamia during the 2nd millennium BC, as well as jars of fragrant oils found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs.  
Today, the fragrance industry has expanded to be a billion dollar business with new perfumes cropping up every week, fronted by famous celebrities or designers. There are a number of perfumes on the market that do more than just smell good, using their fragrances to promote sustainability or aid social causes.
