Refining Traditional Naturals
IFF’s LMR often fields requests from perfumers seeking custommodified extracts. “Each demand is different,” says Toulemonde, “but is very often associated with a perfumer’s vision.” At any one time, IFF’s LMR could be handling dozens of such requests; for instance, producing colorless extracts via molecular distillation or removing some of the dirtier notes from patchouli. Often, an IFF perfumer will use the resulting modification on just one particular project. In addition, IFF’s LMR is able to remove allergens from materials via thermal and molecular distillation. All told, each year IFF’s LMR produces eight to 10 new products for IFF perfumers.
