Creating the latest fragrances using unique technology and sensibility.
Articulating new images in fragrances

 What kinds of fragrances are conjured up by key words such as "the scent of the moon" and "the smell of a wintry sky"? It is our fragrance business to articulate the image matching the customer's product concept with fragrances. The Fragrance Department develops fragrances that win the empathy of all and impart the same image to all. Ogawa's Fragrance Department is a design house for fragrances which applies outstanding technical skills and sensibility to create "one-of-a-kind" fragrances which match final products.

Mobilizing fragrance professionals to articulate the target images

 To express the customer's product image through fragrances, the sales and research staff of the Fragrance Department work together to consult on approaches to product development. Our sales staff ascertain the customer needs and product concepts, and our perfumers compound fragrances on the basis of this information. This is followed in turn by application in prototype samples similar to our customer's final product, and sensory evaluations are conducted by our evaluators focusing on our customer's perspective. Such concerted activities by our fragrance professionals enable us to offer high-empathy fragrances which match product images.
