Sensory and molecular evaluation of fragrances

Fragrances are important in many products. Therefore, the standardised sensory analysis by human noses as well as the chemical (molecular) characterisation of fragrances can be essential to the development and optimisation of products and materials.

How can we help?

Odournet’s range of sensory analysis and molecular analysis services includes:

  • sampling of fragrances (e.g. vaporising using the liquid to gas vaporiser (LiGaVa)
  • analysis of odour concentration using dynamic olfactometry according to DIN EN 13725
  • sensory evaluation and comparison of fragrances according to various parameters such as intensity, hedonic tone (how pleasant, unpleasant or offensive it is) and polarity profiling using an expert panel
  • molecular analysis and comparison of fragrances using gas chromatography with ion-mobility spectrometry (GC-IMS), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or GC-Sniffing (for example, to determine odour-relevant components or to analyse the release of aromas when applied to human skin)
  • longevity testing.
