IFF(NYSE:IFF) and its in-house natural ingredients specialist, LMR Naturals (LMR) will unveil three new fragrance ingredients: Ylanganate, a new fragrance molecule; and Grapefruit and Persian Lime Oils from LMR. These will be on display at the IFF booth (#436) during this year’s World Perfumery Congress (WPC) at Palexpo, in Geneva, Switzerland from June 24 to 27. 


“IFF has a long history of creating some of the world’s most captivating fragrance ingredients,” said Ana Paula Mendonça, president, Scent, IFF. “Ylanganate, Grapefruit and Persian Lime oils exemplify mindful fragrance design that brings together the best of nature and cutting-edge science. Furthermore, with nature and its sensory wonders as its palette, IFF has developed an environmentally responsible booth to introduce these new ingredients to the fragrance world through a memorable and unique experience.”

Ylanganate, a powerful boost for delicate florals

IFF’s latest fragrance molecule, Ylanganate is the first new solution for perfumers to be showcased at the WPC. Complete with a variety of solar white floral notes, it offers a gentle complexity and calm sensuality that improves the performance of fruity, sweet and vanillic-balsamic notes in perfume formulations. It carries no risk of discoloration, requires low dosage levels (below 0.5 percent) and aligns with a readily biodegradable positioning. IFF’s Ylanganate delivers excellent performance in perfumes and personal care applications and lends a sense of naturality even in synthetic formulas.

“The new Ylanganate molecule is a multifaceted ingredient with many sides to discover,” said Ricardo Moya, senior perfumer at IFF. “Alongside primary white floral and citrus notes, its red and stone fruits, wintergreen, balsams and spices notes contribute to a more authentic foundation across all scent categories. It excels in many point-of-purchase scenarios, performing extremely well in home and fabric care applications with outstanding fragrance intensity (bloom effect) on damp fabric and lasting burn in air care. It is also highly compatible with technologies such as fabric care delivery systems.” 

Premium purity from LMR Naturals Grapefruit and Lime Oils

IFF will also introduce two new fragrance oils from LMR: Grapefruit Oil CP Pink Mexico FCR LMR and Lime Oil CP Persian Mexico FCR LMR. These oils are derived from the highest quality fruit peels using cold-press extraction technology. From farm, through harvest to production, LMR cultivates partnerships with producers recognized for top-quality pure and natural ingredients, ensuring the quality, safety, and sustainability of all its fragrance solutions.

“We’re immensely proud of the latest additions to our Pure Premium Citrus range,” said Juliette Karagueuzoglou, VP Perfumer, IFF. “In a segment where bergamot and lemon tend to take center stage, our new grapefruit and lime oils offer brands refreshing alternatives, with the same commitment to quality and transparency they expect from LMR. In terms of their olfactive signature, both oils exude brightness and zest. The lime oil delivers sparkling tangy notes and a hint of sweetness while the grapefruit oil packs a punch of bitter fruitiness complemented by aldehyde nuances.”

A sustainable, sensorial experience

At this year’s event, visitors can expect an unforgettable and engaging sensorial experience at IFF’s booth. For the first time, it will feature a “Scent, Sound and Visual” cabin, leveraging IFF’s partnership with Ircam Amplify and its ‘Science of Wellness’ program, and an interactive installation named the ‘Tree of Emotion’.

The booth will be constructed using recycled and upcycled materials, in addition to others that are recyclable after use, such as cardboard and PEHD (high density polyethylene) plastics. Its aim is to reflect the company’s commitment to protecting nature.
