The Smell & Taste Lab Geneva



The Smell and Taste Lab est né de ma passion pour les senteurs, le sensoriel et leur impact sur notre bien-être et notre santé. Imprégnée dès ma plus tendre enfance dans le jardin de roses de ma grand’mère en Alsace, mon parcours est nourri de rencontres de grands professionnels de ces domaines.

Mon expertise d’ingénieur chimiste parfumeur, mon expérience et mon réseau développé au cours de plus de plus de 20 ans en RD-Marketing-Innovation au sein d’entreprises leaders de la Beauté, du Bien-être et de la Nutrition Santé, et mon travail en étroite collaboration avec le monde académique et les start-ups, m’ont motivée à créer The Smell & Taste Lab, Conseils Sensoriels sur Mesure.
