About the event

These lectures will cover different aspects of Flavour & Fragrance Chemistry, from the historical background of this fascinating field to its applications for the Fragrance and Perfume industry. The functionning of the human olfactory sense will be detailed, as well as the classical analytical tools used for the analysis of fragrant materials (Gas chromatography, Headspace sampling techniques, Olfactometry…) A large part of the lectures will be focused on the description of the natural fragrant raw materials used in perfumery (Rose, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Ambergris, Musk…) to better understand their chemistry, and the syntheses of their key odorants and their artificial substitutes. Samples of these materials will be brought in the lectures to initiate the students to these fascinating fragrances.
