Vanity, Perfume and Shaving Collectibles

In this collectibles catergory Vanity refers to many different antique and collectible items used to apply makeup at a dressing table. Perfumery, or the art of making Perfumes, began in ancient Egypt but was developed and further refined by the Romans and the Arabs. Knowledge of perfumery came to Europe as early as the 14th century. Perfume is a mixture of fragrant essential oils and aroma compounds, fixatives, and solvents used to give the human body, objects, and living spaces a lasting and pleasant smell. Plants have long been used in perfumery as a source of essential oils and aroma compounds.

Shaving, done by both men and women is the practice of removing body hair using a razor. Shaving can be done with an electric razor or a manual razor. If a non-electric razor is used, some lathering agent such as soap or a special shaving cream, gel, or foam is normally applied to the area to be shaved first, to avoid a painful razor burn. Lathering agents lubricate the area to be shaved, moisturize the skin, and lift, soften and swell the hairs so that after they dry, the ends may even recede below the skin surface. Manual razors are available in many different styles: disposable, disposable cartridge, straight razor, and safety. Some forms of women's razors have no blade at all, and use chemicals to break down and remove the hairs.
