Imagine a fragrance that not only smells great, but makes you feel good too. Introducing VivaScentz™, a ground-breaking technology by Givaudan. Discover how this science-backed tool can help brands to meet the growing consumer demand for products that improve well-being.
Tapping into the well-being trend with VivaScentz™
From meditation apps to healthy snacks, from digital detoxes to wellness weekends, self-care is a major trend. Faced with increasingly stressful lifestyles, consumers are making an effort to take better care of themselves and slow down. People are also becoming more aware that feeling happy and healthy requires a holistic approach, encompassing our mental, physical and emotional states. So, how does this translate into perfumery?
Scent plays a vital role in improving well-being, as it has the power to trigger a positive emotional response. This “feel-good factor” can also help to reinforce the emotional bond between brands and consumers.
At Givaudan, developing solutions that enhance quality of life is one of our key aims. With this in mind, we set out to create an exclusive new technology to enable our perfumers to craft fragrances with real well-being benefits. The result is the VivaScentz™ Well-being Metric: a revolutionary tool that measures consumer well-being holistically in the context of perfume or oral care.
“Health and well-being has never been more important given the unprecedented situation that we are all facing today. That’s why we are thrilled to add VivaScentz™ to our collection of fragrance technologies. It will influence the way perfumes are created and help us to bring consumers meaningful fragrance solutions to counterbalance negative stresses.”
