Eurofragance Produces its First Captive: L’Ame du Bois™ from Wood Waste to the Perfumer’s Palette

Oct 10, 2021

Out of the Woods Comes New News Wood notes have always held an important place in the Perfumer’s palette, who will often count on this broad olfactive family to create the heart or base of his or her fragrance. Always eager to address a challenge, Eurofragance took on the task of creating their first captive; an innovative raw material that would bring some new news to this family of ingredients. Felipe San Juan Tejada, R&D Scientist at Eurofragance, who led the joint team of Perfumers and R&D Experts for three years on this project, had this to say about the result of their work: “We honored nature by creating a new olfactive expression for wood that provides the building blocks for future fragrance creations. We feel that in the near term L’Ame du Bois™ should be reserved for the design of prestige fragrances and for all premium product categories, be it fine fragrance, home or personal care.” From Sawdust to Premium Perfume, or the Art of Upcycling It is a challenge for any fragrance house to create an interesting and desirable captive, but Eurofragance set the bar even higher by deciding that their future wood-based ingredient had to respect their strict sustainability philosophy. So, how does one produce a natural extract from wood without deforesting or negatively impacting the environment? The answer came from upcycling discarded sawdust from a particular tree. The objective of the team was to remove, via natural purification methods, the superfluous, parasitic, molecules from the wood compound, but keep those of perfumistic interest. This time-consuming purification step was repeated over and over, over several months. In the end, they were able to uncover an ingredient with the best olfactory profile, while retaining the soul of the wood. In French, soul (or essence) translates into “ame”. Hence, Eurofragance named their captive: L’Ame du Bois™, the soul of wood. A Woody Note Befit for Our Times Historically, natural woody notes were often perceived as being more masculine. Eurofragance being well aware that times are changing, was interested in creating an ingredient that could appeal to women and men alike, and also resonate for those seeking more unisex scents. L’Ame du Bois™ perfectly fits the bill. Henry van den Heuvel, Global Creative Director and Senior Perfumer at Eurofragance, who was actively involved in the design of the innovative ingredient, offered his assessment: “L’Ame du Bois™ is avant-garde in terms of its conception, but, above all, for what it brings to fragrance creation. It redefines woody notes in a manner befitting our time. L’Ame du Bois™ is inclusive and all-embracing of other accords and olfactive notes. For Perfumers, L’Ame du Bois™ is a true breakthrough.” Each year, during the Beautyworld Middle East trade fair, Eurofragance presents a new Nomad Saga Experience, an exclusive collection of fragrances created with distinctive raw materials. This year, all the mesmerizing scents are crafted with L’Ame du Bois™. In weeks to come, Eurofragance plans to present their worldwide customers who can’t make it to Dubai, their latest fragrance creations built around their new ingredient. 10 total views,  10 views today  0 total views,  1 views today 2021-10-10
