Orchidia’s Visit to ScentsAbility, an Organization that Helps Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

ScentsAbility is an inspiring organization that helps individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing job training, employment, and supported housing to disabled young adults. Their trainees become part of ScentsAbility’s retail and manufacturing operations.

During the visit, Technical Sales Representative Matt Trotter and Sales Manager Mike Mack gave a fragrance training seminar to the young adults at ScentsAbility. They smelled through several candle fragrances and were taught how to categorize fragrances into different families. They were also taught how to rename a fragrance using their newly learned fragrance categories.

Matt and Mike had a great time working with ScentsAbility’s young adults and were overwhelmed by their respectful, happy, and loving attitude.

Orchidia Dream Vision Comes to 2017 New York Society of Cosmetic Chemist Suppliers Day

Orchidia has gained a strong reputation for their unique and creative approach to fragrance. This past week at the 2017 NYSCC Suppliers’ Day, Orchidia introduced fragrances in a delivery system never seen or used before in the industry.

Integrating scents with virtual reality brought attendees on a complete sensory adventure, rafting through the natural beauty of Xanadu, featured in the poem Kubla Khan by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. This VR fragrance technology expelled six custom fragrances with corresponding tropical visuals, music and sound effects. After experiencing Orchidia’s VR fragrance journey, attendees could take home any of the six fragrances in a bath gel application.

It’s just one more example that Orchidia can fragrance just about anything … and in this case, an abstract fantasy!

White Paper: Natural Fragrances in Laundry Care

Current Laundry Market: Fragrances and Practices
The Holy Grail of fragrance in laundry products is to effectively deliver the product’s aroma to dry clothes. However, because fragrances are a complex mixture of natural and/or synthetic chemicals of varying volatilities, this goal has proven to be difficult to achieve. The active movement and wide surface area of the wash cycle in combination with heat and motion in the dryer drives off the more volatile, smaller molecules of the top and middle notes. It is the larger molecules of the base notes that last.
