Vanilla is one of the most popular and recognizable scents in the world. Its history dates back to ancient times of Maya Civilization. However, it is believed that vanilla was cultivated for the first time in the 15th century in Mexico. There are sayings that it turned into Queen Elizabeth I’s most favorite one. At that time, it was found that cultivation of Vanilla planifolia plant could not happen without the presence of the plants’ natural pollinators. This discovery later led to the development of special method of hand-pollination for Vanilla plants. Nowadays vanilla beans are sourced from all over the world, but the demand often is greater than the supply.
