Health and wellbeing in the world of fragrances
At Givaudan, we expect a lot from our fragrances. Not only do they need to smell great; they need to bring wellbeing benefits to consumers and be good for the planet, too.
This requires a unique mix of innovation, perfumery expertise and scientific research. The result: creative yet dynamic fragrance technologies that enhance daily life for people around the world.
Health and Wellbeing Centre of Excellence
Personal wellbeing is a multi-trillion dollar global industry – and it’s still growing. 74%¹ of us consider wellbeing to be more about our mental and emotional state, and only 36% of millennials and baby boomers feel “very satisfied” with their wellbeing. More interestingly, less than half of us understand how to achieve mental and emotional wellbeing.
To help us understand this rapidly evolving area and how it relates to fragrance, we carry out extensive scientific research at our Health and Wellbeing Centre of Excellence in Ashford, UK.
This gives us unparalleled insights into how fragrances are perceived and how they affect the way we think, feel and act.
