  • Patent number: 10646416
    Abstract: The present invention relates to water-dispersible microcapsules that include an oil phase, e.g. a perfume, containing a photolabile compound capable of generating a gas upon exposure to light. The gas is able to cause an extension or the breaking of the microcapsule allowing the release of the oil phase and thus increasing the long-lastingness of the odor perception. The present invention concerns also the use of such microcapsules in perfumery as well as the perfuming compositions or perfumed articles that include such microcapsules therein to provide a prolonged release of fragrant molecules.

  • Patent number: 10632443
    Abstract: The invention relates to microcapsules coated by a particular mixture of copolymers, which demonstrate a high rate of deposition when applied on a substrate. Those microcapsules can be used in several industries, in particular in perfumery and rinse-off applications. Perfuming compositions and perfumed consumer products comprising these microcapsules are also objects of the invention.

  • Patent number: 10323127
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the field of perfumery. More particularly, it concerns co-polymers, derived from aspartic acid and comprising at least one ?- or ?-aspartic acid derivative capable of liberating an active molecule such as, for example, an ?,?-unsaturated ketone or aldehyde. The present invention concerns also the use of polymers or co-polymers in perfumery as part of a perfuming or malodor counteracting composition, as well as the perfuming compositions or perfumed articles comprising the invention's compounds.

  • Patent number: 10260022
    Abstract: The present invention relates to microcapsules delivering long lasting and intense vanilla-based odor note. More particularly, the present invention concerns a microcapsule comprising between 10% and 30% by weight, relative to the total weight of the microcapsule, of a particular perfuming ingredient imparting a vanilla-based odor note, which can be used in perfuming compositions and perfuming consumer products.

  • Patent number: 10105311
    Abstract: The present invention relates to water-dispersable microcapsules comprising an oil phase, e.g. a perfume, containing a photolabile polymer comprising ?-ketoacid or ?-ketoester group capable of generating a gas upon exposure to light. The gas is able to cause an extension or the breaking of the microcapsule allowing the release of the oil phase and thus increasing the long-lastingness of the odor perception. The present invention concerns also the use of said microcapsules in perfumery as well as perfuming compositions or perfumed articles comprising the invention's microcapsules to provide a prolonged release of fragrant molecules.

  • Patent number: 10058491
    Abstract: The present invention relates to water-dispersible core-shell microcapsules essentially free of formaldehyde. In particular it concerns core-shell microcapsules having a shell obtained by reacting polyisocyanates or polyoxirans cross-linkers and oligomeric compositions which are the reaction products between a polyamine component and a particular mixture of glyoxal and a C4-6 2,2-dialkoxy-ethanal. The present invention also utilizes the invention's core-shell microcapsules as part of a perfuming composition or of a perfuming consumer product.
