人間の心と身体に与える香りの効果

Favorable influence of odors on the human behavior and health is very well-known but not well-studied yet. Takasago International is not only a pioneer in developing technologies related to Aromachology: science permitting to measure the effects of a smell on the Human physiology and psychology. We dedicate significant efforts to research on wider scopes, and engage ourselves in developing non-invasive measurement methods applied to aromachology.

Effects of scents on the autonomic nervous system and the central nervous system activities can be studied and confirmed by measuring of physiological parameters including brain waves and cardiac activities, skin temperature, blood flow changes.
In particular, utilizing of CNV technologies (Contingent Negative Variation: concomitant negative variation) like EEG (Electro Encephalogram) we can confirm the sedative or energizing effects of odors. It is now successfully applied in the development of wide range of products categories.
