Aroma Esencial

Looking to consolidate its position as the leader in the natural aromatic ingredients space, French fragrance house Robertet has acquired the Aroma Esencial business.

WHO: Based in Girona, Spain, Aroma Esencial specializes in the processing of natural products such as vetiver, patchouli, cedar, ylang-ylang, and other strategic products for the aroma industry. The company also has extensive experience, a high-end industrial tool for fractionation and molecular distillation, and a range of strategic products for the fine fragrance industry.

Opening their factory in 1850, François Chauvé and his nephew Jean-Baptiste Maubert concentrated on extracting scents from the region’s flowers and plants. The company was acquired by Paul Robertet in 1875. Robertet is the only fragrance, flavor, and ingredient company fully integrated at each step of the creation process—from the source ingredient to the final fragrance and flavor. Today, Robertet, which remains controlled by the Maubert family, has a portfolio of more than 1,700 natural materials and products developed in its 14 creation centers around the globe.

WHY: This deal furthers Robertet's desire to consolidate its position as the leader in natural aromatic ingredients.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: Julien Maubert, Director of Raw Materials Division, Robertet, says, "This acquisition is fully in line with our desire to consolidate our position as world leader in natural aromatic ingredients and to strengthen our competitive advantage through a unique offering for our customers."


  • Robertet acquired the Aroma Esencial business. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
  • In June 2021, Robertet acquired natural flavors and extracts manufacturer Ecom Food Industries.
  • In January 2020, Robertet acquired a majority stake in Sirius, a manufacturer of natural and organic ingredients in cosmetic products.
