120 years OF FORWARD THINKING

WHERE ART MEETS THE
SCIENCE OF PERFORMANCE

Across all applications, Firmenich’s Research team is continuously developing innovative technologies to enhance the consumer experience. For example, in Home Care, our scientists are working to extend the lingering bloom on clothes, sheets and other textiles. In Oral Care, we are creating a unique set of sensations designed to trigger consumer satisfaction.
Our industry-leading delivery solutions include perfume longevity, bloom and malodor counteraction. Firmenich’s new perfume performance technologies are making it happen.

HUMAN RESPONSE
TO ODOR

As individual molecules interact with the 350 olfactory receptors in the nose, a human’s instincts are awakened.

This response is what motivates perfumery experts. By interpreting the nuances of the olfactory receptor code, Firmenich’s researchers aim to understand more precisely how humans experience odor.
