Research Facts
Givaudan Delawanna is a former name of the perfume company Givaudan SA based in Switzerland. It was founded in 1895 in Zurich, but changed locations to be near Switzerland after a nearby bakery complained that their bread smelled of violets.The company was a pioneer in the introduction of synthetic fragrances, and often mixed synthetics with natural fragrances. In 1946, Givaudan opened a perfume school in Grasse in southern France in order to train future employees and perfume creators. They estimated in 2001 that one in three of the world's fragrances had been developed by perfumers trained by Givaudan.
Menthol is the main constituent of mint, making it a familiar scent and flavour to many. Mixed Isomeric Menthols, the contents of this bottle, are most likely a combination of the isomers (the same compound of atoms with a different molecular structure) isomenthol, neomenthol, and isoneomenthol.
The logo on the bottom of this bottle is from the Owens-Illinois Glass Company, and the numbers around it represent its date and factory code. The embossed "Duraglass" at the heel of the bottle occurred from 1940 until the mid 1950s, and the "2" to the right of the logo indicates that it was produced in 1942.
