“Smell and Taste – the chemical senses. They carry meaning to perceive and evaluate reality, but also evoke memories, feelings, and desires, and the power of olfactory sensations seems almost magical to many of us. The chemistry behind these, however, is no mystery.”
Thus is introduced the conference which will take place on 24-26 September, 2007 at Imperial College in London. The topics of this event which is open to researchers, industry professionals, journalists as well as anyone interested in fragrance range from natural products and flavors, to olfaction, perfumery and fragrance chemistry. While the full program can be viewed on the Conference website, among the speakers discussing perfumery and olfaction, the schedule includes perfumers Céline Ellena (Charabot, Neuilly sur Seine), Geza Schoen (Escentric Molecules, Berlin) and Christophe Laudamiel (IFF, New York).
