September 2019 Scented Notes by Perfumarie

September 2019

Synthetics in Scent

- - -

While we usually don't associate the lab to the green and eco-friendly, synthetics are often the most sustainable alternatives in the perfume industry. This month, we addressed the importance of landmark synthetic aroma molecules in the midst of drastic climate change. After all, this is Climate Week.
