A BRAND NEW CREATIVE APPROACH
BEYOND MUGUET

Beyond Muguet
Beyond Muguet
Famous for its iconic perfumery ingredients, Firmenich is presenting its unrivalled collection of fresh and transparent florals under a single name: Beyond Muguet. Created by the genius of our scientists and sublimated by the talent of our perfumers, this exploratory work embodies a brand-new creative approach and opens up new territories.
Following the successful launch in 2016 of LILYFLORE®, the external release of HIVERNAL® NEO in 2018 was the perfect opportunity to offer a differentiated alternative to traditional muguet molecules restriction, including our most recent captive ingredients. Beyond Muguet is not a single molecule or solution, but rather a series of 7 ingredients, presented alone or in combination, which push the boundaries of our creativity even further.
We defined 11 criteria describing the olfactive profile of each molecule, which we used to create visual representations of their unique smell. Then we used the same set of rules to create and evaluate multiple combinations of 4 of the 7 molecules. The result is amazing, and the stunning visuals are sure to inspire creative solutions!
