We exist to deliver 'better living through scent'. This isn’t just our motto, it’s our mantra.

For over 220 years, we have fostered a community of creative entrepreneurs who believe collaboration is the key to creativity, and to continually deliver purposeful and pleasurable scent experiences for consumers around the world.

We deliver world class ingredients in a way that doesn’t undermine the world. We believe Sustainability isn’t a choice, it’s an edict, and so we’ve committed ourselves to the highest standards of ethical and sustainable sourcing of raw ingredients. We believe that being the No. 1 producer of fragrance raw materials through our Aroma Molecules division as well as the No. 1 supplier of premium active ingredients through our Cosmetics Ingredients division requires us to set and adhere to the highest standards for ourselves as well as for the entire industry.

At the intersection of science and art, there is understanding and true innovation. Trend-spotting and consumer insights coupled with our unparalleled innovation capabilities through our Beauty+ program allows us to create highly innovative solutions through a meaningful combination of Fragrance and Cosmetic Ingredients to address unmet consumer needs – sometimes even before those needs have been clearly articulated.

We are shaping a new era in fragrance through everything we do. Imagination fills the air with possibility. And every elegant drop has the power to touch the senses, the soul and the world.
