Supporting fragrances’ branding and marketing objectives, Myrissi™ selects the best emotional and visual universe that will really resonate with consumers. Using a chemical composition as its starting point, Myrissi™ decodes the fragrance into colours or moods and helps develop precise, emotional mood boards. In the same way, when given a colour base, Myrissi™ will make appropriate fragrance matching suggestions, ensuring the best alignment between colours, emotions and scents.
Supporting a holistic understanding of consumer needs
Inaugurating the ‘Feel colours, smells emotions’ approach in perfumery, Myrissi™ enables Givaudan to deliver a deeper emotional understanding of consumers’ perceptions to customers and amplifies the delights of the fragrance experience, from packaging to campaign storytelling.
Myrissi™ insights have been harnessed in ‘Well&Be’, Givaudan’s new creative playground, determining nuanced and fulfilling olfactory journeys, through various states of wellbeing. Myrissi™ has informed the visual universe for wellbeing archetypes explored through feelings of nostalgia, transformation, connection, discovery and nature.
