Creation/Application Sponsored by
It is far easier to produce original top notes than original base notes. This is the reason I am going to discuss the blending of tenacious perfumery raw materials.
The indan derivatives which contain only carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are unique herbicides, and we are hopeful that they will partly fill the present day need for harmless biodegradable pesticides.
The purpose of this short course is to provide those concerned with cosmetic product development and evaluation an overview of scaling and the types of information and applications that derive from consumer product assessment. This short course will cover the history of the magnitude estimation procedure, its development and applications, as well as “hands on” evaluations and analysis.
The process involved in the creation of a fragrance are many, complex, and terribly abstract. I would like to share with you my notions about how a perfume is created, primarily from the vantage point of what goes on in the perfumer's head. What are the sources of inspiration to the perfumer? How does a fragrance develop from concept to finished creation?
The secure position that nitriles currently hold on the perfumer’s palette can only be strengthened by continued activity in the synthesis and utilization of this most interesting class of aroma chemical.
It is necessary for every perfume company to have an active chemical research team. The difficulties perfumers meet have become more complicated due to the great diversity of new chemicals that have become available during the last fifteen years. Too many products with very similar notes, even though their structures are different, are offered to our sense of smell.
The odor character of the flowers of lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis L.) is appreciated by almost everyone. An essential oil of the flowers is not commercially available. Therefore, perfumers must create compositions of this odor type based upon their memory of the natural product, using other essential oils and synthetic fragrance materials.
What happens when there is an external evaluator whose client is the brand? What is their contribution to the process of launching niche fragrances? Pia Long writes about the unique relationships between niche brands, fragrance houses and the evaluators who work with them.
Fragrance suppliers have traditionally developed fragrances with limited knowledge of the components which characterized the total package. We would like to see the 1980s emerge into an era in which we will be afforded the opportunity of developing highly specialized fragrances; ones which would be finely tuned to and illustrative of the "total package" concept.
I would like to encourage continued research into the chemistry of natural materials. Often fascinating new chemicals can be produced directly by isolation from essential oils, or by further chemical processing of these isolates. Despite legislative difficulties, this work should be continued apace. Our growth and future lies here.
