FIRMENICH INGREDIENTS
INSPIRING THE INDUSTRY

Captive ingredients embody the soul of Firmenich, they express our uniqueness and responsible “savoir-faire”. Firmenich’s “sharing innovation” program is designed to share selected Firmenich signature ingredients.
With its clean green notes and highly unusual cold effect, the powerful HIVERNAL® NEO is part of our “BEYOND MUGUET” exploration.
Brimming with elegant musky notes, this key olfactive isomer combines the creamy warmth of amber with a dry woody character.
Reinforcing its commitment to sustainable, game-changing ingredients, Z11 is the third bio-based ingredients, in the footsteps of CLEARWOOD® and AMBROX® SUPER.
Traditionally hand-picked in Grasse at the peak of the bloom in May, the exceptional “Rose de Mai” is the source of our iconic Rose Centifolia Pays Abs, extracted in our local facility.
Originating in Assam, birthplace of Oud, our OUD ASSAFI is the finest quality extract of Aquilaria malaccensis, a variety first registered by Firmenich for use in Perfumery. Experience the magic in 3 captivating specialties designed with OUD ASSAFI.
A BRAND NEW CREATIVE APPROACH
BEYOND MUGUET
 
WHAT IS 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.
WHY?
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.

HOW?
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!

RESPONSIBLE AND INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIP
EXCELLENCE IN MINT

With access to a network of the best growers in the world, Firmenich offers increased production capacities in blending, purification, and fractional distillation of Mint essential oils.
Nature is both our greatest inspiration and the source of our most precious ingredients. That’s why we are committed to providing the most sustainable and traceable Mint in the industry.
