Our tools and knowledge, at the service of your fragrances.
We work tirelessly to assist with science and technology, in the shortest time, to the development of your fragrance. The expertise acquired over years in the F&F industry is what we offer to independent perfumers, R+D departments, educators and professionals who wish to specialize in the production of fragrances
The Fragrance Characterization Process
Step 1 - Data Extraction through deconvolution algorythm: The fragrance is injected in GC/MS through a long column (60m.) to achieve an optimal separation of each individual component. After this, the signal is processed under a powerful system based on a complex algorythm to detect a hughe number of compounds (sometimes more than 300).
Step 2 - Identification of Compounds: Substances are double-identified by GC/MS in SCAN mode, comparing the fragmentation pattern and the retention time of every molecule (after being bombarded by an electron beam) with several libraries (some commercials and others self-built).
Step 3 - Quantification of Compounds: The quantification is carried out by GC/FID.
Step 4 - Deformulation: This is one of the most challenging part of the process. When requested, the ingredients of the fragrance (complex naturals, aroma chemicals and bases) are elucidated from the data obtained in the analysis. Our databases and the deep knowledge of the complex world of natural products and aromatic ingredients, allow us to offer you a proposed formula for the sample sent. The final report obtained contains the comercial names of the substances, their cas numbers and their percentages.
