Can you copy a fragrance?
What we can do is identify all the relevant odorants (molecules) and their CAS numbers in a fragrance. We can also give an indication of their relative contribution to the fragrance, as odour activity value. To calculate odour activity for each odorant in the fragrance, the odour threshold value needs to be available on www.odourthreshold.com. Using GCMS/TOF and GC sniffing we can identify the majority of relevant odoronts, although about one third of odorants remains undetectable analytically at the odour threshold concentration.
We do not reconstitute a fragrance as a standard service. We are also weary of possible trade mark infringement that may be involved in reconstituting the actual fragrance.
We are very happy to analyse and provide the information on the molecular composition of any scent or fragrance. We are also interested in recreating malodours or heritage scents.
Does Sensenet test tobacco products?
At Sensenet we apply an ethical code that prevents our group from rendering services that can contribute to the wider use of products that are harmful to health, including tobacco (and weapons).
We have done projects to limit the odour impact of tobacco leaf processing facilities because we considered that did not have a direct link to tobacco use and would benefit the community in the vicinity. We have also tested to reduce tobacco odour impact on non-smokers (active textiles)
However, services that contribute to higher tobacco usage or increased number of tobacco users are out of bounds.
