It is not new that perfumes are objects of desire for many people, and it is also no accident that the culture of perfumes is very old and still generates many profits. They arose with the main intention of pleasing the Gods in offerings and religious temples, however, due to their great repercussion among citizens during the offerings, tributes and in the temples, they soon started to serve mainly men and women, which enabled a series of advances, and artisanal techniques, which were small in the beginning, in order to extract essential oils and produce perfumes. As our society grows and develops, this production was gradually transferred to large industries, the ones we know today. Through this theme, this work appears as a CTS proposal to the teaching of Chemistry, since the subject of perfumery transcends time, growing and developing socially. For this, the work has the incentive of this CTS perspective to promote interdisciplinarity by relating concepts from different areas, with a focus on chemistry. Therefore, priority was given to the theoretical foundation on the approach itself, the history of perfumery and, finally, materials were proposed to complete the entire experience of this monograph, making relations between the theory and practice of “Chemistry of perfume”.
