Perfumers to Create Winning Fragrances Using Artificial Intelligence

The aroma chemicals market is undergoing significant transformations as a result of innovative chemistries and thorough knowhow of flavors and fragrances. Strategic collaborations have led to the unfolding of new-to-the-world fragrances (synthetic fragrances and extracts from flowers, fruits, mosses, and spices) in the aroma chemicals industry.

One such aspect about the aroma chemicals industry is the introduction of AI (Artificial Intelligence) for fragrance product development. As such, stakeholders are modifying their business operations by conducting ground-level developments to evaluate insightful data in the aroma chemicals landscape. Increased research & development efforts are giving rise to new methods of using artificial intelligence to develop perfumes positioned on digital fragrance models.

With the help of artificial intelligence, manufacturers and stakeholders are able to create newer, safer, and greener molecules in the aroma chemicals landscape. Thus, using artificial intelligence elevates the process of cross-reference market research, acquisition of customer data, and preferences and disparate information that influences operational decision-making. Artificial intelligence also analyzes several formulas and historical data, which combines the art and science of innovative perfume-making in the aroma chemicals landscape. For instance, in October 2018, Symrise AG - a leading producer of fragrances and flavors, announced its collaboration with IBM Research - IBM’s research and development division, to develop Philyra, a project that is developed to use artificial intelligence and helps perfumers make productive and high-precision designs that are predicted based on novel combinations.
