Visual fragrance: IFF partners with Amkiri to boost the technology

International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) has joined forces with Israel-based start-up Amkiri to boost their Visual Fragrance Technology. According to the fragrance giant, the application potential of this innovation is almost limitless.

Amkiri, an Israeli-based start-up that was founded in 2014, has launched the Visual Fragrance technology last March. Amkiri’s Visual Fragrance technology is a new ‘ink’ that can be drawn on the skin that also delivers a longlasting fragrance, thus connecting the senses of sight and smell.

This is a significant innovation in the fragrance category, merging strong and deeply personal visuals with the resonance and emotion of fragrance,” said IFF Chairman and CEO Andreas Fibig. “The Visual Fragrance technology creates a new platform from which IFF can showcase our capabilities, including naturals, molecules, and cosmetic actives. The potential for innovative applications are nearly endless and our teams are truly inspired by the possibilities.

Amkiri’s patented Visual Fragrance is applied to the skin using specially designed applicators, allowing the user to adorn themselves with individual multisensory body art. According to Amkiri, the formula is long-wearing and can work with any fragrance or colour.

Some of the most disruptive innovations come from the start-up community — this is as true in beauty care as it is in technology,” added Nicolas Mirzayantz, IFF Group President, Fragrances. “This extremely emotionally engaging technology brings a very timely category innovation to the market place.

The company will continue to develop more ground-breaking technologies that will continue to serve and disrupt the beauty industry,” said David Chissick Amkiri Chairman.
