2016 in Review: I will think of 2016 as the renaissance of Italian Perfumery, making its mark on a global scale, while across the Atlantic American artisans are gaining worldwide recognition. This was the best year for Natural Perfumery I can remember, thanks to more consumers looking for alternatives to synthetics, the emphasis on quality natural materials touted by the Big Flavor and Fragrance companies and to technological break-throughs such as co-distillations, fractions, isolates, and co2 extractions, giving added dimension and uniqueness to natural perfumes.
