Who are we?
Odournet SL Was established in 2000 in Barcelona, Spain.
We offer a full range of odour consultancy services. These are aimed at the assessment of environmental nuisance exposure indicators and impacts on the exposed population, as well as the sensory evaluation of products and materials.
How can we help?
Our odour laboratory is accredited with the ISO 17025 for EN 13725 measurements. It boasts 25 permanent selected and trained sniffing panelists, backed up by more than 60 volunteers for deodorant efficacy and consumer tests.
Whatever your specific needs, we can assemble the right testing panel for you – for example, based on factors such as sex, age, smokers or non-smokers, athletes, and so on.
We also have a reference molecular laboratory, equipped with state-of-the-art gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and odour sniffing (GC-Sniffing) equipment for simultaneous chemical and sensory testing. All in all, there isn’t much that we don’t do!
Our consultants are highly experienced in odour assessment and control studies, across a wide range of industrial sectors. And, to make sure that this impressive expertise is put to the best possible use, they offer solution-oriented consultancy – including the preparation of guidance for environmental agencies on issues such as odour assessment and odour management for composting, intensive livestock, landfills and waste water treatment facilities.

Why you should work with us
CoC for Molecular Odour Evaluation
We are proud to offer high-quality specialist molecular evaluation services using a time-of-flight mass spectrometry(MS-TOF) lab with a measuring range of sub ppt (parts per trillion). This is a factor around 10 to 100 lower than offered by conventional high-end quadrupole systems.
Gas Chromatography – Olfactometry (GC-O)
We can characterise an odour in terms of specific VOCs, with simultaneous assessment of the odour character of each individual compound. What does this mean for you? You can benefit from the most powerful tool possible for the characterisation and identification of odours.
European research and innovation projects
Odournet SL likes to keep ahead of the game. That’s why we participate in several European projects and conduct research to develop innovative tools for odour assessment.
Deodorant and antiperspirant studies
Our laboratory is equipped with three individual cabins suited for odour efficacy evaluations of deodorants and antiperspirants.
We offer a unique methodology for characterising the odour of a product and demonstrating similarities or differences in relation to comparable products.
We’re always keen to pass on our expertise. We deliver tailored training courses on odour sensory methodologies to private companies, universities and other institutions.
