Why is research carried out on essential oils? In the perfume and flavor industry, one might search for a new essential oil for one or more of the following reasons:

l To find new fragrant or aromatic raw materials able to be used as such for their organoleptic properties. l To find new sources of isolates to be used as such or to serve as intermediates in the production of other substances. l To identify new fragrant substances in order to carry out their synthesis, or to prepare structural analogues provided with similar propefiies. l To find new essential oils or isolates with other properties.
