MANE on the web
In an ever-changing world, olfaction and gustation are very difficult notions to grasp. And yet, MANE has a unique ability to capture not only what people like, but also what deeply moves each individual, and so everyone. For eternity… or just for now.

MANE, le parfumeur green.

MANE, le parfumeur green. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

MANE a opté pour une technique de distillation "par le vide", qui réduit l'impact sur l'environnement en termes de consommation d'eau et de charge polluante. Même la qualité des essences s'en trouve optimisée!

A Bar-sur-Loup, près de Grasse dans ses terres provençales, la société Familiale procède à la distillation d'essences. Le principe de la distillation fractionnée consiste à chauffer les essences sous vide, qui vont se séparer en plusieurs constituants en fonction de leur point d'ébullition. Les Fractions sous forme gazeuse sont ensuite condensées pour être récupérées et analysées. L'utilisation du vide permet d'abaisser les points d'ébullition des molécules et ainsi de moins chauffer les essences pour qu'elles préservent au mieux leur qualité olfactive. Récemment, l'agence de l'eau a accompagné l'entreprise dans un changement de technologie. En effet, historiquement la technologie de vide consommait de l'eau et de la vapeur. La nouvelle solution utilise un circuit d'eau fermé et des groupes de froid dédiés. L'avantage est triple: réduction de la consommation d'eau, suppression de l'utilisation de la vapeur, diminution de la charge polluante traitée dans la station d'épuration. Pour la mise en place du nouvel équipement, d'un coût de 700 000 euros, un pilote a été testé. « On en est aujourd'hui à la finalisation de l'installation », explique Luc Carrière, responsable environnement de la société MANE, qui se félicite que l'initiative subventionnée par l'agence de l'eau fasse ses preuves et s'inscrive dans la stratégie durable de l'entreprise.

Plus que jamais, la question des approvisionnements durables, éthiques et avec des produits qualitatifs, est d’actualité. Tour d’horizon des enjeux et des stratégies de chacun des fournisseurs.

Chez MANE, la solution pour exploiter la vanille malgache malgré les trois années de mauvaises récoltes et la flambée des prix, passe aussi par des investissements locaux. « Nous payons le prix fort, mais ces liens avec du personnel sur place nous assurent suffisamment de quantité et qualité, car lors des pénuries, certains fermiers sont tentés de faire mûrir trop vite les gousses. À côté, nous développons aussi du vétiver et du géranium Bourbon. Ce dernier, plus rosé que celui d’Égypte, est très intéressant », explique Cyril Gallardo, directeur ingrédients EMEA de MANE. Autre nouveauté malgache mise au catalogue, le Gnidia daphnifolia, petite fleur aux inflexions violette-tubéreuse, contenant aussi naturellement du maltol. La société du Bar-sur-Loup est par ailleurs allée chercher du côté du Cameroun pour proposer la "four corners", une gousse dont le résinoïde présente des facettes fruitées, gourmandes et liquoreuses.

Maurice MANE, figure la parfumerie grassoise et mondiale, est décédé. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

C’est avec une profonde tristesse que nous avons appris le décès de Maurice Mane, survenu le 21 août dernier, à l’âge de 91 ans.

Maurice Mane était une figure internationale dans le monde de la parfumerie, également officier de la légion d'honneur.

C’est en 1959 qu'il succède à son père, Eugène, pour prendre les rênes de l’entreprise, installée au Bar-sur-Loup, près de Grasse. Il supervisa avec succès son développement, notamment dans la diversification des activités dans le secteur des arômes pour l’industrie alimentaire.

Il prendra sa retraite en 1995 mais gardera tout de même le poste de président du conseil de surveillance, laissant les rênes de l’entreprise familiale, aujourd'hui n°5 mondial du secteur des arômes et des parfums, à ses fils Jean et Michel, respectivement président du directoire et directeur général chargé du développement des filiales du groupe.

FRESHPLEX™, Malodour Counteracting Fragrances by MANE.

FRESHPLEX™, Malodour Counteracting Fragrances by MANE. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

In the modern world we are increasingly exposed to smells. Ranging from very pleasant to strongly unpleasant, most of the smells are pervasive. As pleasant smells are inevitably linked with well-being, emotions and memories, malodours may cause psychological and physiological discomfort.

Our increasing knowledge of malodours from different sources has led us to set up a systematic approach of malodor counteraction. MANE team has tested the efficacy of our patented molecules against the identified malodour molecules with a headspace-SPME analytical technique. Only captives that are reducing by 30% at least the concentration of the 3 malodour molecules have been selected. Based on the collected data, our team has defined the minimum mandatory dosage of MANE patented molecules which our perfumers will follow to create our custom-made FRESHPLEX™ fragrances with an added benefit in malodour management.

The rosemary-based ingredient can extend the shelf life of a variety of products without imparting color, flavor or aroma—even at dosages up to 400 ppm. Available in water-soluble and oil-soluble versions, the natural liquid extract is well suited for products that are sensitive to aroma, color and flavor, such as specialty fats, omega-3 fortified products, popcorn, and beverages.

MANE adds Gnidia Flower Absolute to the perfumer’s palette. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

Among the various innovations that MANE showcased at the 2018 edition of the World Perfumery Congress, Gnidia Flower Absolute is a floral extract from Madagascar’s Gnidia daphnifolia.

These wild orange flowers attracted Mr Jean Mane’s attention in 2005 when travelling through Madagascar. "We eventually started testing different extractions which gave surprising results leading to this unique absolute,” explained Véronique Nyberg, Vice President Creation, Fine Fragrances at MANE .
To make this new scent available, MANE spent several years overcoming the legislative and sanitary hurdles that have to be passed prior to placing a product on the market. The multifaceted scent of the flowers unveils notes of narcissus, violet, cucumber, tea, and tuberose. The extract contains natural maltol, which brings a note of delicious sweetness. “A new ingredient of this type is a strong vector of innovation,” added Véronique Nyberg, “That’s what can make the difference when responding to a marketing brief.”

Locally called Mandriakiaka, the fibre of the plant is used to make ropes or Antaimoro paper from the name of the communities which produce it. Today, the Gnidia flowers are harvested by hand by two associations of women living in a village where MANE also sources its vetiver.

Salvatore Ferragamo "Rinascimento" by Alex Lee .

Salvatore Ferragamo "Rinascimento" by Alex Lee . | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

The fashion house relaunched its premium fragrance offer with the 11-item Tuscan Creations line celebrating the culture and lifestyle of the Italian region.

Collaborating with Ferragamo for the first time, California-born young MANE perfumer Alex Lee created the green-juiced Rinascimento scent.

In school I was taught about the two aspects a perfume needs to have,” said Lee. “One is the idea that a perfume should be recognizable, not to be confused with any other fragrance. The second [is] that the perfume has to have a very big trail and signature. My goal was really to work on these two facets and create something that is very universal, powerful and present because Mr. [Salvatore] Ferragamo is present everywhere and I wanted to really pay homage to this amazing man.”

The fragrance blends Florentine symbols such as lilies and iris to tuberose in its heart. Top notes feature green elements such as basil, Italian mandarin and green pepper while the dry down mixes sandalwood to smokey vetiver for an illusional leathery effect evoking the brand’s heritage.

The first ingredients [I picked] were actually the tuberose and iris, I knew I had to put the two together,” said Lee, recalling the creative process. “The idea came very quickly, but the hardest part was weaving everything together, the woods and the floral, and that took months, hand in hand with the Ferragamo team.” (more to read on WWD)

Perfumer & Flavorist 2018 Leaderboard: MANE Increases Global Position.

Perfumer & Flavorist 2018 Leaderboard: MANE Increases Global Position. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

MANE rose in the leaderboard ranks this year due to a combination of new successes in beverages, confections and seasoning and strong performance in its fragrance division.

Rising one spot since last year’s leaderboard, MANE has made progress in-terms of its global reach and capacity. In March 2017, the company celebrated the opening of its office in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, which included a fragrance R&D center equipped with application labs and test cabins. Then in November, MANE laid the foundation for a new manufacturing hub in Pinghu, Zhejiang Province of China, with operations starting in 2020.

In addition to its infrastr­ucture advancements, MANE released several product portfolios. In March 2017, Mane launched a range of fresh natural herb flavors, including basil, coriander, mint, chive, parsley, dill and tarragon. On the more savory side, Mane released Sense Capture spices in November 2017, a collection of 14 natural flavor references with eight spice profiles.

"With revenues up 9.2% in EUR, from €1,058.5 million in 2016 to €1,155.8 million, and up 11.5% in U.S dollars, from $1,172.0 million to $1,306.9 million, the group posts consolidated sales figures that continue to place Mane among the fastest growing leaders of the fragrance and flavor Industry. Without the negative impact of exchange rates, our turnover in Euros would have progressed by 10.1%", says Jean Mane, MANE President and CEO.

MANE et la lavande.

MANE et la lavande. | MANE on the web | Scoop.it

La floraison de la lavande a débuté dans l'arrière pays provençal. C'est l'occasion pour les vacanciers qui parcourent la route Napoléon de faire un halte à l'ancienne usine MANE de Barrême, reconvertie en Musée de la Distillerie de Lavande.

Vestige d'un temps où Barrême et ses environs se revendiquaient comme LE pays de la lavande, la distillerie fut un important site de production MANE de 1931 jusqu’à sa fermeture en 1972. Idéalement située sur la ligne des Chemin de Fer de Provence reliant Nice à Digne les Bains, la distillerie construite par les Etablissements Schimmel en 1905 a vu converger durant des décennies les lavandes des nombreux petits producteurs de la région. Vestige d'une époque révolue, la distillerie de Barrême témoigne de cet âge d’or de la lavande, initié au début du XXéme siècle et dont le déclin s’amorce dès le lendemain de la seconde guerre mondiale.

 

The flowering of lavender began in Haute-Provence. It is the occasion for those who travel along the Napoleon Road to stop at the old MANE factory in Barrême, converted into the Lavender Distillery Museum.
A relic from a time when Barrême and its surroundings claimed to be THE land of lavender, the distillery was an important MANE production site from 1931 until its closure in 1972. Ideally located on the Chemin de Fer de Provence line linking Nice to Digne les Bains, the distillery built by Schimmel in 1905 has seen the convergence of lavender from many small producers in the region over decades. A vestige of a forgotten era, the Barrême distillery bears witness to the golden age of lavender, which began in the early 20th century and declined after the Second World War.
