Givaudan Active Beauty offers a select few customised fine fragrances that similarly protect the skin microflora

07 Jun 2018 · 11:25 CEST

Ten new fine fragrances crafted with the award-winning microbiome protecting ingredient, Revivyl™, allow customers to express and protect their uniqueness.


We are all unique. Unique by our smile, how we express ourselves and how we interact with others. As our uniqueness is in our DNA, it’s the same for our skin microbiome. This is the inspiration behind our fine fragrance concept called [Yu], for ‘Your Uniqueness’. Ten customers were randomly selected during the Givaudan Active Beauty 2017 VIP Party to receive a unique gift: a customised fine fragrance that also protects their skin uniqueness.

Givaudan Fine Fragrance perfumers crafted fragrances based on the olfactive preferences of each winner which was then expertly combined with the latest skin microbiome protecting ingredient, Revivyl™, to protect what makes us unique.

Each winner has received their ‘active perfume’ in personalised packaging along with their unique skin microbiome map, representing billions of DNA information analysis unique to each person.

Fabrice Lefèvre, Marketing and Innovation Director, said: “Givaudan Active Beauty is constantly striving to combine active ingredients in revolutionary concepts. Beyond the concept of ‘exclusive skin microbiome protecting fragrances’, we are creating new sources of inspiration for our industry. What if you could express how special you are by your fragrance and protect your intrinsic uniqueness? These ten perfumes are a perfect example of how we create using the synergies between Fragrances and Active Beauty.”

Givaudan is the first fragrance house to create a personalised perfume which protects the skin microbiota. In line with our aim to delight customers and consumers with an ever-evolving product offering, we continue to lead the way in skin microbiome research in our Applied Microbiomics Centre of Excellence in Toulouse, France.
