IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances, Inc.) recently released just 200 sets of their Secret Smelling™ Collection. For the 2016 Edition, this series was renamed as the Secret Smelling Collection because the perfumers pass on their formulation secrets. The artists reveal the molecules and natural captive ingredients carefully stored in IFF safes away from probing noses. These natural and synthetic materials are truly avant-garde. They represent perfumery at its most innovative, daring, surprising and magical. The key ingredient to creating truly beautiful and fragrant evocations is talent. Once again, IFF's perfumers prove themselves demonstrating their mastery of a subtle and mysterious art.

Just a few notes of explantion:

  • Captive molecules are ones that are preciously guarded by the company that created them.
  • The natural captive ingredients are created by LMR (Laboratoire Monique-Remy) IFF's in-house naturals facility located in Grasse. LMR has total control of the process from field to extraction to distillation, insuring incomparable purity and quality, as well as respecting the producer and the environment. LMR is widely acknowledged as an exception and a model setting the industry standard for quality natural materials.
  • Living™ scent capture technology involves the capturing of a scent right where it is. It is possible to capture an odor, for example on a growing plant, and decode all of its components to recreate them later. The prospects are endless, one can capture the fragrance of a plant, an environment, a person, etc. 

An ardent believer in linearity, Dong does not adorn his fragrances with anything superfluous. He created this fragrance using ylang ylang heart, a purified ylang returned to its best fraction and produced by LMR and with Aquaflora™, a captive molecule with flowery and marine aldehyde notes. These two flowers create an original, innovative bouquet. Often considered an old fashioned and traditional note for fragrance, here ylang is given new life with a vanilla facet and an aquatic touch that is amplified by the Aquaflora™. It is an eau de toilette, edt.
