Paris street markets in the 1700s offered more than 50 kinds of flavoured cooking vinegars. And, more than 90 varieties were for making the outside of the body smell better.

The most popular, and least expensive, was pepper vinegar. It was made from wine that had been laced with pepper.

​Other vinegar flavours included: clove, carnation, chicory, mustard, fennel, ginger, pistachio, rose and truffle.
