Fragrance duplication of a finished product comprises an important part of our industry. Not only is this type of work important to a customer who wants to offer a similar product, but many times a fragrance will be requested for a different product type altogether. Perhaps a fine fragrance is desired in a bath line; a popular shampoo fragrance for an air freshener; a soap fragrance for a cleaning product, etc. M P Fragrance perfumers keep abreast of new product fragrances that we draw upon to form a basis for a customer's request. With the difficulties in describing a desired odor for a product, it creates a common reference upon which to build a successful fragrance.
As fragrance trends evolve, it is important to have the ability to identify the delicate balance of raw materials that yield a particular fragrance. With this knowledge firmly in hand, we can then draw upon it to help form new fragrances that flow into trends of the future.
Knowing the makeup of a fragrance allows us to identify problems that may arise in using it in a particular customer's product. We can modify the fragrance to work properly, or suggest that an alternative approach be taken.
