Olfasense quality seal
The Olfasense quality seal enables manufacturers to demonstrate the olfactory performance of their products
The Olfasense quality seal with combined permanent quality assurance process enables manufacturers to highlight unique or particular olfactory properties of their products and have this confirmed by an independent body. That way consumers are supported in their purchasing decision by letting them rely on the independent judgment of a neutral expert. Below you find the award criteria for the Olfasense quality seal.

Award criteria for the Olfasense quality seal
Product claim to be scientifically proven
Odour reduction performance of an anti-odour product compared to a standard product.
Identical sample preparation of the anti-odour product and the standard product according to conditions that mimic the real-life usage as closely as possible.
Human sensory odour measurement of the anti-odour product and the standard product with odour panellists that were selected and trained according to EN 13725.
Awarding of the Olfasense quality seal
The Olfasense quality seal is only awarded if the differences in odour reduction performance between the anti-odour product and the standard product is significant. Significance is achieved in the significance test with a confidence interval of at least 95% (p-value <5%).
As a permanent quality assurance process, the above described procedure will be repeated annually, or as soon as significant changes are made in the production process of the anti-odour product.

Our customised studies help you get to know your consumers
Don’t expect your consumers to think like product developers.
That is why our consumer studies can be an essential cornerstone of product development. Not sure how your panel group should be composed?
We can offer advice on that too. With plenty of experience in setting up sociodemographic panels, we can organise them to meet specific criteria.
Depending on the product and test design, panel groups can be run in:
- domestic settings
- studio design
- hospitals and nursing homes
- schools and universities
