Product & material odour testing and optimisation

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 innovative project specific test designs tailored to meet our client objectives.
