Multidimensional Visualization of Physical and Perceptual Data Leading to a Creative Approach in Fragrance Development
By: Christine Vuilleumier, Matthijs van de Waal, H…
Perfumers are being increasingly challenged to improve the performance of their formulations. As well as being pleasant, fragrances have to comply with growing requests for stability, biodegradability and uniqueness. Other factors render the work of the perfumers difficult, such as the specific smell of the non-perfumed substrate or the need to cover unpleasant odors.
