In the perfumery industry, fragrance ingredients play a fundamental role in creating a unique and appealing essence. Each ingredient used in the composition of a perfume contributes a nuance that helps shape its personality and olfactory characteristics. When combined, these ingredients create a distinctive sensory harmony that translates into a perfume with its own DNA. Both synthetic and natural ingredients offer multiple options, tailored to different budgets, for companies looking to launch their own fragrance line.
We guide our clients in the selection of fragrance ingredients.
Natural ingredients are obtained directly from raw natural materials. They bring authenticity and allow for a connection with nature, which is increasingly appreciated by consumers.
Furthermore, natural ingredients add a special touch to the final fragrance as their olfactory profile varies depending on their place of origin and harvest.
At Àuria Perfumes, we work with trusted suppliers who guarantee the quality of raw materials and ensure sustainable cultivation. We follow a responsible purchasing policy, considering not only economic criteria but also social responsibility aspects.
We also hold the Cosmos certification from Ecocert, a certification body for natural and organic cosmetics. This certification allows companies to launch their lines with the endorsement of responsible and environmentally-friendly agricultural practices.
We are aware that limited availability and the difficulty of extracting certain natural ingredients can make their cost higher. Additionally, due to sustainability and species conservation considerations, some natural ingredients may be subject to restrictions or regulations. For this reason, we are open to innovations that are transforming our industry, such as bioengineering and the circular economy. On one hand, scientific research is giving us the opportunity to work with natural ingredients obtained through sustainable biotechnological processes. On the other hand, the circular economy is driving the reuse of plant-based raw materials from other industries (a trend known as upcycling). An example of this can be found in fruits used in the food industry that have a secondary use in the perfume sector, as we can extract odor molecules with great potential for perfume development.
On the other hand, synthetic ingredients are chemical compounds developed in the laboratory that imitate or reproduce specific olfactory notes found in nature. These ingredients provide stability and consistency in the composition of the perfume, as their profiles are more predictable and controllable. Perfumers generally use a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients to create perfumes that produce natural sensations with extended projection and longevity that can only be achieved through the use of synthetic molecules.
Synthetic ingredients are often more cost-effective and available in larger quantities, which can influence the final cost of the perfume and result in more affordable fragrances for consumers. It’s important to note that scientific advancements now allow us to work with ingredients derived from green chemistry. These are ingredients developed through environmentally friendly processes capable of reproducing the olfactory characteristics of natural ingredients.
One aspect to consider is that, on occasions, it is necessary and mandatory to resort to synthetic ingredients to reproduce the fragrance of silent flowers – those from which it is impossible to extract their essence for perfumes, such as lilacs or lilies – or even to comply with regulatory requirements in the perfume industry.zzz
The choice of ingredients is crucial to achieve the desired quality and originality in a line of fragrances. Perfumers and companies must carefully consider the harmony and balance between the selected ingredients, evaluating their olfactory evolution and how they interact with each other.
