Osmo, a start-up launched in January 2023 to create new perfume molecules and scents by combining machine learning, data science, psychophysics, olfactory neuroscience, electrical engineering and chemistry, has just recruited independent perfumer Christophe Laudamiel.
Laudamiel’s mission will be to help the startup bridge the gap between traditional perfumery and innovative approaches to developing new fragrances. Beyond creating perfumes reproducing existing scents, he will aim to shape the trends of the future, using ingredients with new olfactory characteristics.
” I am delighted to join the Osmo team building the first AI platform dedicated to the discovery of odorous molecules “, explains Christophe Laudamiel. ” The perfume industry masters complex plant extractions, perfume chemistry and large-scale manufacturing. But when it comes to creating scent molecules, there are new opportunities to explore the billions of untapped molecules that the human nose cannot identify on its own. “.
Christophe Laudamiel has 25 years of experience in the creation of perfumes. He has composed widely acclaimed fragrances for brands or personalities such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Beyoncé, Estée Lauder, Thierry Mugler and Tom Ford, as well as for museums and art installations.
The perfume industry is constantly on the lookout for new molecules. Osmovise technology to speed up the process. ” Our technology is designed as a complement to the best perfume expertise, it increases the capabilities of master perfumers says Alex Wiltschiko, CEO of Osmo.
