Read the following passage and choose the correct answer for each question.

The actual word perfume comes from the Latin per fumus which means literally ‘by smoke’. This is because, many centuries ago, people noticed that some smoke rising from their fires smelled sweet and pungent. Until then, there was scent, of course, in flowers and even in trees, but it could not be controlled in any way. A flower that smelled sweet at dusk or after the rain, for instance, no longer did so after dark. It was only in lighting their fires that men first noticed that some woods gave off sweet smells, and that by burning them they could have scent whenever they wanted it.
Women began to perfume themselves very early on, and the Egyptians used scent very lavishly. Cleopatra went to meet Anthony in a barge that was literally soaked with it! Perfumes of the time would, however, seem very strange to us today because they were extremely spicy. The first cheap scents were made in Roman times and even Nero’s wife, Poppaea, went into business and invented a scented face cream which became a status among rich women at the time.
The great breakthrough in perfumery came when the scientist Avicenna, who lived from 980 to 1036, discovered that the aroma from plants and flowers could be preserved by distillation – and rose water was born. It came to Europe at the time of the Crusades, when the knights brought perfumes home for their ladies to use. In the Middle Ages and the Reformation, people sprayed themselves with perfume as a substitute for hygiene, as they used baths less and less. (In 1292 there were still about 30 baths in Paris where people chose between steam or warm water, but these gradually went out of fashion.)
It was during the 18th century that Paris really began to reign as a centre of elegance, luxury and fashion. The austerity of the French Revolution was just a passing phase, after which the Directoire, and then the Consulate and the Empire, rediscovered the art of perfumery and beauty. Napoleon’s love of Eau de Cologne was as well known as Josephine’s for heavy musk scented perfumes.
Nowadays people like exotic, rather heavy scents with oriental undertones for evenings and, for everyday use, the simpler ‘green’ smells of citrus and single floral scents. The materials the perfumer uses have changed very little, except that synthetic essences have taken over to get ingredients. But basically, perfume making remains the same.

With its mind-bending (DIVERSE)  - from snowcapped mountains to sun-washed beaches, tranquil temples to feisty festivals, ramshackle rural villages to techno-savvy urban hubs – it’s hardly (SURPRISE)  that India has been dubbed the planet’s most multidimensional country. The continent is home to more than a billion people, and its wide range of ethnic groups translates into an intoxicating (CULTURE)  cocktail for the traveler. For those on a (SPIRIT)  quest, India has a large number of sacred sites and stirring philosophies, while lovers of the great outdoors can paddle in the shimmering waters of one of many palm-fringed beaches or simply breathe in the scent of wildflowers on a rejuvenating forest walk. And then there’s the food! From (TASTE) south Indian rice dumplings to zesty north Indian curries, travelers are treated to a positively (SEDUCE)  meal of subcontinental specialties.
Demystifying India is a perpetual work-in-progress and for many travelers, that’s (PRECISE)  what makes her so deeply (ADDICT) . Ultimately, it’s all about (SURRENDER)  yourself to the unknown: this is the India that nothing can prepare you for because its very essence – its (ELUDE)  soul – lies in its mystery. Love it or loathe it – most visitors seesaw between the two – India will jostle your entire being and no matter where you go or what you do, it’s a place you’ll never forget.
