Perfumes are ephemeral beings. Open the bottle stopper and they evaporate, soon lost to time. Lost even faster than the stone visage of Ozymandias. But they can be trapped in time by disasters such as shipwrecks, volcanic explosions or earthquakes and re-discovered intact.
Or the souls of their core flowers can be captured with sophisticated scientific apparatus and 'aromaprinted'
Or their formulae can literally be the writing on the wall
Or remnants of their aromatic materials can be pieced together again much like at a crime scene
And once again these marvellous scents of the ancients can be brought to life.
