Examining the rapid development in the chemistry and uses of cooling agents. Physiological cooling agents are ubiquitous ingredients in many consumer products, such as chewing gums, toothpastes, mouthwashes, lotions and shampoos. Based on numerous new patents and publications, research and development in the field continues at a fast pace.

The aroma chemical aspects and new discoveries in both natural and synthetic citrus ingredients. Of all the ingredients on the perfumer's palette, surely none are more instantly recognizable to the public than those in the citrus category. Fresh juicy oranges, sulfurous tangy grapefruit, tart puckery lemons and heady sweet limes all bring to mind a host of pleasant associations in which taste and smell play an equal part.

The growing scarcity—and resulting increased price—of sandalwood oil explains the fragrance industry’s continuous search for synthetic substitutes. Javanol (Givaudan), prepared from naturally occurring α-pinene, represents a new tool in terms of performance and naturalness of scent. Here we learn the importance of sandalwood for perfumery, its synthetic substitutes, the discovery and use of Javanol.

A look at the two groups that comprise this section of heterocyclic chemicals, with a focus on the aromatic molecules. Of the ca. 20 million chemical compounds presently characterized, almost half are heterocyclic molecules. Heterocyclic molecules are significant due to their abundance in nature, as well as their chemical and biological importance.

Gliding silently across the canopy of a coastal rainforest in the Masoala Peninsula of northeastern Madagascar, Roman Kaiser knew he was on to something good. “Can you smell this unique scent of White Freesia and Robina — which tree might it be — we have to go closer,” Kaiser said to his ScentTrek teammate and Givaudan executive perfumer, Dave Apel.

Perfumers often use the descriptor “thujone” to describe a particular note in fragrances. However, the odor of thujone itself seems to be inseparable from the character of the essential oils in which it is found. This article will examine the uses of thujone and thujone containing materials in perfumery, and describe some synthetic materials — old and new— that are intended to provide this note.

Can you remember life before the rose ketones? Can you remember what rose reconstitutions used to smell like before the rose ketones were available? Probably not. And if you can, you probably weren’t too impressed with them
