New Book by Roman Kaiser : Meaningful Scents around the World


The new book by the fragrance and flavor chemist and director of the natural-scents research unit for Givaudan, Roman Kaiser, promises to be fascinating. “Meaningful Scents around the World” is offering “a fragrant journey to some of the exciting places the author has visited in 30 years of olfactory research… In doing so, he leads us to such exotic places as Lower Amazonia, Papua New Guinea, India, and many rain-forest biotopes in his quest for new molecules and new scent concepts, showing us along the way how a scent like tatami can be linked to culture,” notes the editor’s review on Helvetica Chimica Acta. Please refer to the website to read more as well as to explore the index. “Meaningful Scents around the World” is slated for July 2006. Roman Kaiser, a scientist famous for his ‘headspace’ analytical technique, is also an author of The Scent of Orchids as well as the numerous scientific publications.
