Today’s post is a particularly exciting one for us. At long last, we are launching NOMAD SAGA, a creative project that takes us back to our roots, and which embodies our company’s personality and the people who make it what it is.
Our nomadic wanderings began decades ago when Santiago Sabatés first set foot in the lands of the Orient. We have been travelling ever since, discovering and absorbing new cultures, raw materials and ways of working. Nomad Saga encompasses all the experiences, anecdotes and stories we will share with our followers.
To ensure that you never miss a thing, we’ve designed the Nomad Saga website, a place where you can travel with us, share our stories and learn about the creations we make with the world’s most extraordinary raw ingredients.
Nomad Experience. Travel with us.
Nomad Experience is the record of our travels: trade fairs, congresses… Places where we can meet and where you can join us on our exciting journey through the world of fragrance. A trip that started last year at the BeautyWorld Middle East 2018 trade fair where we debuted our long-awaited Nomad Tales collection, details of which we shared in an earlier post. Four fragrances based on four raw materials that represent far-flung and imaginary climes. A unique, powerful experience for the senses, worthy of the nomadic legacy we are continuing.
And if Nomad Tales was a delightful surprise, wait until you see what we have in store this season.
Nomad Box. Treasures of perfumery in a unique box.
Eurofragance has always sought out and used extraordinary raw materials in its creations. According to our CEO, Laurent Mercier, there’s no better way of showing our skills as a company than sharing them. This we have done by creating a beautiful box containing fascinating elements from our perfumer’s palette, a fragrance created with this raw material and a guide to its history, culture and the people responsible for it.
Our first jewel is Shamama. A traditional essential oil originating in the city of Kannauj, in India, for which we have special affection at Eurofragance. And just like Eurofragance’s creations, it is always unique. The creators of this magical combination of raw ingredients have kept the formula a secret, converting this oil into almost a work of art.
Would you like to learn more about this extraordinary material? Keep an eye on our social networks. Little by little, we will tell you what our Nomad discovered about Shamama while travelling through these exotic lands.
Nomad Farm. Creative Workshop.
Finally, Nomad Saga also includes Nomad Farm. Eurofragance offers creative workshops based on the Nomad Saga theme. Get ready for an interactive journey where you will discover new ingredients, unique applications and trends.
Which raw materials should you be looking for depending on what you need
Scents have an effect on us, they can boost our energy, help us relax, make us feel good, take us back in time, etc. Despite not having been scientifically proved, the fact is that certain fragrances influence our mood and emotions.
Fragrances have the power to awake our senses. Furthermore, there are smells that can bring us back old memories: the perfume of our mother, the detergent with which clothes were washed at our house when we were children, the jasmine that used to be at our home town gardens, etc.
As we have said in previous posts, the sense of smell is connected to the part of the brain that processes emotions. Hence the influence of smells on our feelings.
You might be wondering, then, how to use fragrances to promote different sensations. Let us give you some advice. But, keep in mind that the fragrance world is as wide and subjective as humans are. So, there are scents that have different effect depending on the person.
Energy and productivity
Do you want to feel energetic and productive? There are certain raw materials used to create fragrances that can boost your energy and productivity. So, when looking for a perfume, body lotion or body wash the fragrance of which energizes you, search for ingredients such as sea salt, sea minerals, algae, lemon and citric notes, in general. They can help you to feel charged.
If what you need is to relax after a stressing day at work, you should be looking for fragrances that contain raw materials like lavender, jasmine or peppermint. What about a lavender bath essence or a candle with a jasmine scent? Give it a try and see what effect these fragrances have on you.
When feeling emotional, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, rose, or the perfume of a beloved one can have a lovely effect on your feelings! Also, sandalwood notes can boost sensuality and desire. It is just up to you!
Orange blossom, lily of the valley or bergamot are commonly used for fragrances that aim to create welcoming environments and wellness.
At Eurofragance, our aim is to be a global leader capturing sensations with the fragrances we create for customers within the Fine Fragrance, Home Care and Personal Care segments. Our goal is to promote wellbeing, happiness and positive sensations through our creations.

We are guided by the Passion for fragrances, we are motivated by ambitious challenges and growth projects (Performance), and we are illuminated by the flame of the entrepreneurial spirit (Entrepreneurship) that started the very first day of our foundation in 1990.
- Passion means to us the love for fragrance world, for our daily job and for Eurofragance. None of our successes would have been possible without the passion that we add to every project, to every new fragrance.

In 1990, a young entrepreneur called Santiago Sabatés, now Chairman of Eurofragance, embarked on an adventure in the fragrance world which led to the growth of an international company with a presence in several continents: Europe, Asia, America and Africa. This entrepreneurial spirit has taken us this far because we take risks and never give up.
These three ingredients of Eurofragance essence are meant to achieve the company´s mission: design the best fragrances in partnership with its clients in order to make their products those preferred by consumers.
Keep your senses wide awake, Eurofragance keeps capturing sensations to deliver unique fragrances that you will find in different products such as perfumes, body lotions, soaps, air fresheners or candles, to name some.

Eurofragance brings technical innovation to Fine Fragrance market
Eurofragance presents “Sensolab Fine Fragrance”, an innovative initiative that proposes new perfumery textures for the Fine Fragrance market. This proposal represents a new way of exploring senses by developing surprising textures for perfumes.
Carried out by Sensolab Technical Studio and Sensorial Marketing Studio departments, this initiative was just presented to our Eurofragancers last week and today, we want to share it with you all.
Our teams have been working on the “Sensolab Fine Fragrance” textures inspired by the history of perfume, reinventing textures to offer a new approach to personal scenting. “It is a creative approach to making the invisible sensual, and the ethereal tangible”, Myriam Terés, Application Manager said.
This innovation pursues to provide new ideas for our customers from Fine Fragrance and Body Care segments, as a source of inspiration. Soon this collection of unique applications will be widen for both Personal and Home Care segments.
“Sensolab Fine Fragrance” features innovation pushed to its extreme: inspired textures, formulations, unusual and diverse ways to apply fragrances unseen yet in the market. An authentic sensorial experience that pretends to inspire new product aesthetics, to open the door to new sensations thanks to creativity and technological advances.
We are talking about eight different textures along with eight fragrances proposals.

The fragrance suggested is Sweet Chypre, a chypre floral perfume enveloping and addictive which includes raw materials such as orange, patchouli and honey.
- Silky perfume along with Millennial Pink Grapefruit fragrance
Can you imagine a perfume in a refreshing gel? Eurofragance main aim is to Capturing Sensations, so we constantly picture new ways to do it through our fragrances and through their applications. This silky perfume offers a new sensation of delicious freshness. For this texture, we propose Millennial Pink Grapefruit fragrance which gives a sparkling freshness feeling thanks to its ingredients: pink grapefruit, lemon and white musk.
- Solid perfume along with Velvet Iris fragrance
Inspired by the enfleurage technique used in ancient times to capture the scent principle of flowers such as tuberose or jasmine, this solid perfume is a scented balm that is applied with fingertips. The suggested fragrance is Velvet Iris. With fresh peach, suede and powdery iris, this scent expresses an unexpected and softer side of sensuality.
- Cushion perfume along with Green Neroli fragrance
An innovative way to apply perfume for young and urban consumers. This cushion perfume with cooling water jelly and rich fragrance provides the consumer with an enchanting scent. The scent we thought of for this texture is Green Neroli. This is a light, carefree fragrance, a blend of green, floral and fruity notes that will surround you with sensations of springtime and youth. Its main ingredients: green tea, neroli and sandalwood.
- Gel perfume along with In Joy fragrance
The sensation this texture provides is very fresh and comforting. Besides, it leaves the skin smooth and supple. The gel format perfume gives luster and beauty to your skin. In Joy fragrance, the scent we suggest for this texture, exudes a positive energy and contents are plum, jasmine and pear as main raw materials.
- Transparent alcohol-free perfume along with Nomad Rose fragrance
Enjoy the olfactive power of a transparent perfume without alcohol. This texture is a delicate serum that embalms the skin with a silky veil and Nomad Rose fragrance gives the perfect touch. This scent´s effect is delicate, comfortable and addictive thanks to its ingredients: lychee, rose and honey.
- Foam perfume along with Sunset fragrance
Have you ever thought about a perfume that is enclosed in an airy, tactile and voluptuous foam? The foam perfume that Eurofragance proposes melts into a moisturising lotion and quickly disappears on the skin, leaving the fragrance behind. Sunset is a fragrance that perfectly match with this texture. Between freshness and sensuality, transparency and depth, a cocktail of tropical fruits and lemon sorbet gently reveals its addictive character on contact with skin. Its main raw materials are tropical fruits, lemon and rose.
