Headspace. originally stands for "Mental Space of the Imagination". It also refers to a technique developed in the 1970s that uses a probe to capture the fragrant molecules of a fresh flower and patiently reconstruct its smell.
Reinventing life identically by capturing the smells that surround us. This is the crazy idea behind the analysis technology invented by Swiss chemist Roman Kaiser and introduced to the perfume industry in the 1970s. Initially, the idea was for a few adventurous researchers to trap the volatile molecules of rare plants without having to pick them, and to reconstitute them.
The main contribution of headspace is to have made new scents available to perfumers, not only those of so-called 'mute' flowers (whose scent could not be obtained using traditional extraction techniques), but also other more unexpected and poetic scents: a fruit, a vegetable, a stone, a place, an environment, the ultra-pure air of Iceland or the scent of a rose grown in space.
