This is the year for big changes and major life-altering decisions. It is also the year for Painful truths. Oh, Honey, it’s 2022! You better smell like something! we are tired of people smelling like nothing. Out here smelling like the atmosphere. Or worse, smelling foul.


Brethren, if you are even remotely religious, you know about the story of the sinful woman who washed the feet of Jesus. One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to eat with them so He went with the Pharisee into the house and sat at a table.

A sinful woman in the town learned that Jesus was eating at this Pharisee’s house. So she bought an alabaster jar of perfume and stood behind Jesus at his feet.

Crying, she began to wash his feet with her tears, and she dried them with her hair while kissing and rubbing his feet with the perfume. I’m sure you know how the rest of the story goes so I won’t bore you by dragging it out.

Variations of Smells

I want us to dwell on the woman and the perfume for just a bit. The Bible is a great book. And while they tried to be as precise as they could, we still have a lot of blanks in the timeline.

However, that is not the case in this story. The Bible goes into excruciating details here. The woman’s hair, where she stood, and my favourite, the perfume jar.

Let me explain. Alabaster was a stone commonly found in Israel. It was also one of the precious stones used in the decoration of Solomon’s temple. 

These alabaster boxes or jars would be filled with expensive perfume to keep it pure and unspoiled. They would then be sealed with wax to retain and preserve the scent. Now read that Bible passage again with this information in mind.

It’s about more than the Smell.

Fun fact: Shumukh perfume is the world’s most expensive perfume costing a whopping USD 1.29 million. (146,286,000 Kenya shillings). Shumukh is known for registering its name in Guinness World Record. It has the most diamonds set on a perfume bottle and the tallest remote-controlled fragrance spray product.


Even before the industrial revolution, people valued how they smell. What is your excuse?

There’s an art to it to this my friends. Do you buy the first piece of clothing you find when you go shopping? The same applies to perfumes and colognes, they smell and feel different for each person. People who know about fragrances test them out and see how they react on their skin during the day
