Our mission

Combining ethics and know-how

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

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 subsidiary in Ukraine or through partnerships with local producers in Provence, Iran, Sri Lanka 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 products 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.

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

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