Flavors & Fragrances inaba

With all our heart,
the scent desired

Flavors and Fragrances are invisible.
Words cannot describe them.
They can't be seen, cannot be heard also.

That's why it's frustrating to describe the scent we're thinking of.
A sudden aroma is like a time machine, bringing us back to good & old days.

The heart can be powerfully, or gently,
moved as one is taken in the blink of an eye to places clear to him or her.

Our job is to read our customer's thought,
to find and reproduce just the scent desired.
