What If Our Curiosity Knew No Limits?

It takes courage to see possibilities in the vast sky.

In 1998, IFF scientists under the leadership of Dr. Braja Mookherjee sent a miniature rose plant aboard NASA’s STS-95 Discovery to study the effect of zero gravity on scent. Using proprietary technologies, the team tracked radical shifts in the living flower’s scent over the course of the shuttle flight.

Ultimately, they discovered and created new-to-world profiles that have since gone on to enormous commercial success.

Projects like this have always set IFF apart—and they’ll continue to help us turn imagination into innovation. Creating ground-breaking sensorial experiences that move the world and make every moment more sensational.
