Givaudan’s 250-year odyssey to engage your senses

Our roots go back 250 years to Grasse, France, where perfume was used to offset odours from the tanning process in glove-making. There, in 1768, Antoine Chiris transformed his passion for perfume from an artisanal business into an empire. 

So began our sensory journey. One marked by many successes, as well as challenges.
