Product & material odour testing and optimisation
Do your products have the smell of success? Our odour analysis services can tell you!
The odour characteristics of consumer products can play an important role in determining their commercial success. In some cases, a product’s odour or ability to effect or reduce odour can provide a unique selling point. In others, the presence of unwanted odours can adversely impact the product’s desirability.
Olfasense offers a range of specialist services to help their clients optimise the odour characteristics of their products. This includes studies to diagnose the cause of odour off-notes; support product R&D and quality control; and demonstrate ‘proof of claim’ applications (e.g. for products designed to reduce or improve odour).
Central to these services is our ability to combine standardised sensory & molecular odour analysis techniques in innovative project specific test designs tailored to meet our client objectives.
With Olfasense we have been maintaining a strong and reliable long term supplier relationship for over 7 years. They have proven to be responsive to our needs by developing innovative and bespoke test designs in the field of deodorant testing.Susanne Treibel, Team Leader Product Testing Deodorants, Beiersdorf AG
Over the years, Olfasense has demonstrated to be a reliable supplier of olfactometry services for us. We are satisfied with their professional non-defensive open attitude, to listen to our concerns and needs and co-operate to achieve the best possible experimental setup. The generated data are in a agreed format (flawless!), and delivered in time.Peter Degenhart, Lead Scientist at one of the world’s largest polypropylene producers
We are using products from Olfasense for many years now and also take advantage of the regular calibration service. We are very satisfied with both, product and service, and were promptly served at each request. In addition to the olfactory tools, we commissioned GC-MS analysis and specific testing, and both services have been done to our utmost satisfaction at all time. Thank you for that.Dipl.-Ing. Holger Eich, Development Ventilation, Neff GmbH
Based on your olfactory data we have already gained good quantitative insights into the key (off) odour drivers so your data turned out to be very actionable for us. Thanks for the good work.Dr Eduard P.P.A. Derks, Senior Scientist Analytics & Statistics, DSM Resolve
You are looking for a company with great experience, high flexibility and with an highly motivated team helping you to find everything around odor which can be measured? With the great experience and human panel, Olfasense was helping us to demonstrate the measurable odor control performance from our new material for human hygiene products. In a second step they were also helping us to develop a short and easy method to demonstrate the odor control capability in an visual test which we can show to our customers in less than 5 minutes. All this work was done in a very short time fitting to our thigh project realization. With the help from Olfasense we have been able to smoothly implement our new product into the market. We will definitely consult the great Olfasense team again, when we would need an similar support at future.World leading non-woven manufacturer
