Our mission

Combining ethics and know-how, from the production of raw materials
to the creation of perfumes


Our know-how involves controlling all stages of the production chain, from the cultivation of fragrant plants to the delivery of fragrance compositions.

Cultivation
We are present right at the source, harvesting a wide variety of fragrant plants (lavender, lavandin, hyssop, tarragon, ylang-ylang, cloves, neroli, coriander, clary sage, artemisia, orange and lemon trees, rose geraniums, etc.). We do this through our subsidiaries in the Comoros and Eastern Europe or through partnerships with local producers in Provence, the Indian Ocean and Latin America. In each of these regions, we develop conventional and certified organic farm production.

Being a producer allows us to offer conventional or organic raw materials, control volumes and prices for our customers, anticipate production according to harvests and offer a large selection of fragrances and flavors.

Transforming natural ingredients
We offer a wide range of essences and fragrances obtained from natural ingredients. To do this we call upon our technological know-how and highly efficient equipment: extraction plants, distillation columns, continuous packaging plant, etc.

Our raw materials are scrupulously analysed by our laboratories: physical properties (density, refraction index, rotary power), chemical properties (acid index, peroxide index, phenol concentration, level of active principles, ester concentration), chromatography (HPLC, GC and mass spectrometry) bacterial and organoleptic analysis.

We pay special attention to analysing the naturalness, colour and allergen levels present in our essences.

Creating fragrances
With regard to fragrance compounds for the beauty, home care and well-being sectors (perfumery, cosmetics, detergence, ambiance and pharmaceutical markets), our customers’ requests are studied by specialists who are capable of anticipating market trends. Always working alongside the customer, our specialists implement a real olfactory strategy. Thanks to our high-tech equipment, we can create and develop customised programmes with volumes ranging from one kilogramme to several tons.

Our laboratories and production facilities all have state-of-the-art equipment and integrate new-generation technologies.

Storage
Our large storage capacity allows us to offer an array of solutions to suit all delivery needs.

Marketing
Finally, we have an extensive marketing network throughout the world and a very efficient logistics department capable of adapting to all regulatory procedures.
