Breakthrough molecules allow perfumers and flavorists to add a true touch of magic to their formulas.
Nature is an endlessly flowing wellspring of ideas. Armed with the most sophisticated techniques, our scientists are busy exploring the structure of natures own molecules, reproducing their purity in the laboratory. Analysing each new sensation, isolating each olfactive or gustative facet, identifying the rarest molecules: all of this enhances the possibilities of the perfumers and flavorists in the creation process.
Firmenich chemists are the true architects of the infinitely small; they imagine and design new molecular structures. With care, they combine them, gently chisel them and offer our perfumers and flavorists unprecedented signatures. Every year, we synthesize 2000 molecules either originating from newly identified natural compounds or from pure molecular design.
The power of fragrances and flavors to excite our senses -- to bring alive ourmost cherished memories -- is magical. And its more than that. By harnessing the power of ingredients through nature and through state-of-theart technology, perfumers and flavorists are transforming dreams into reality.
