Our Story

Our Story

Blending science and creativity to formulate fragrances and aromas for your winning brands.

Over 45 years, Scott Aromatics has established a reputation for creating unique aromatics, flavours and fragrances for our clients.

Dennis Scott, the company’s founder, started the company in 1977 when he moved to Australia from Bristol, UK. A decade later, Rene Scholl joined him as a partner in the firm.

Rene’s background is in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. He served his apprenticeship in chemistry in the epicentre of Swiss/French perfumery in Geneva, Switzerland. It’s through his application of the skills and knowledge he gained over the years that led him to introduce many ground-breaking technical innovations.

Above all, Rene is a problem solver. His determined, ‘can-do’ approach led him to be one of the first in the Australian industry to use GCMS (Gas chromatography-mass spectrometer) technology to reverse engineer fragrances with a high degree of accuracy.

This technology, plus the ‘ancient art of the nose’, enabled Rene and his team to build a vast library of fragrances – and to meet his clients’ needs by creating unique fragrances for use in a myriad of products.

One of Rene’s favourite sayings reflects his strong belief in the value of life-long experience and the importance of continuous learning:

“Remember the old, but know the new”

– Georges Brassens (1921-1981), French poet and singer/songwriter

A family tradition built on strong values and a passion for fragrance.

Rene’s legacy of excellence, innovation and traditional fragrance development skills, has now been passed onto the next generation,

His daughter and current company director Dominique Kencalo-Scholl, has inherited her father’s passion for fragrance and for business. Dominique leads her expert technical team in formulating signature scents for product marketers in Australia and overseas.
