Time to tame your sweet tooth with this month’s issue of Perfumer & Flavorist+. The October issue taps flavor experts to discuss innovations in sugar reduction and alternatives. The insight doesn’t stop there; the following pages are filled with the latest ingredient launches, industry news and even a one-on-one with Monell Center president and CEO, Robert Margolskee, M.D., Ph.D., who is preparing to step down as director in June 2022.

We also connect with Esas Beauty founders, Amanda Sichon and Seda Bilginer, on their journey from Givaudan to launching their very own brand. The two discuss their product line, sustainable practices and much more. Flip to Page 50 to find out more about Esas.

This month, P&F+ is introducing a new series dedicated to fragrance experts highlighting an ingredient of their choosing called “Perfumer Notes.” The column (Page 38) is designed to dive into the fragrance’s common usage, describe the ingredient’s versatility and how the perfumer prefers to work with the ingredient.
