    Default Aroma chemicals that are owned by/exclusive to a specific company

    Just curious if we could compile a list of aroma chemicals that a specific company developed and which are either exclusive to them or simply owned by them (in this case, other companies can typically purchase the chemicals but at a MUCH higher price. Hence, you tend to see more of the company specific chemicals being used in scents developed by that company. For instance, serenolide and safraleine are both created by Givaudan, and hence Givaudan perfumers can use far more of the chemical in question since it is so much cheaper, and thus these chemicals are far more likely to appear in large doses in a perfume by a Givaudan perfumer.)

    Here's what I know of:

    Givaudan
    Serenolide
    Safraleine
    Nirvanolide
    Pomarose
    Cosmone


    If anyone can add to this I'd really appreciate it. Scentophile, where are you?

    IFF has a proprietary substance called Arctical, but I don't know much more about it. Here's the only documentation I could find. It's a cooling agent used in the Porsche Design Essence. Note that the actual components aren't named in this document.

    Just had a look through that article. Very interesting. While I knew it to be true, it was weird to read:

    "The products to which the fragrance oil is added are typically produced in large batches of several
    thousand litres and the mixing vessels can be open or closed."

    ...several thousand liters of some fragrance or another.

    One of these days I'd like to see this on eBay:

    "For sale: 5000 L steel vat. Content: Mitsouko Parfum oil"
