The glass bottle used for perfume has evolved immensely over time and the history of the first man-made glass can be tracked back as far as 5000-3500 BC. The original process of making glass was used by coating sand with molten glass, based on the chemical compound silica (silcon dioxide), the primary constituent of sand. Nowadays, glass blowing is used primarily to make glass which still contains silica as well as other metals and metal oxides, like alumina, magnesia, boron oxide and lead oxide. Glass made from pure silica allows for a very clear and durable glass which is not only strong but, resistant to thermal shock also.e from pure silica allows for a very clear and durable glass which is not only strong but resistant to thermal shock also.
