About Us

Located in Grasse, at the heart of the perfumery world, Associate Allied Chemicals Europe is a distributor of high quality raw materials for the European fragrance, cosmetic and flavour industry. Our product portfolio includes aromatic chemicals and naturals that are sourced from the leading suppliers around the world meeting international quality standards.

We work on a partnership model with our suppliers and customers ensuring a consistent flow of quality ingredients from the source to the end-user. Our ultimate aim is to become a reliable-just-in-time-one-stop-shop for all our European partners so that they can focus all their energy of creativity and business development.

Partnership model

At AACE we are not just distributors or stockists but we are partners. We believe in a unique partnership model with our customers and suppliers based on trust, transparency and a vision of mutually beneficial growth.

As the world market for raw materials keeps getting more volatile with fluctuating prices and inconsistent supply, we believe in providing our suppliers and customers with accurate market information to ensure a consistent flow of the ingredients from the source to the end-user.

We are highly attuned to the world market and react quickly to ensure our customers are not left in a “stock-out” or “priced-out” position. Similarly we ensure that our suppliers have reliable market data about long-term demand forecasts thereby enabling them to efficiently plan production cycles and raw material procurement.

Our promises: Quality, Service & Value


Our foremost goal is to ensure that all our ingredients are of the finest quality and meet international standards as well as customer specifications for which we have adopted a two-fold quality strategy.

Firstly, we are very careful in selecting our suppliers and work very hard with them to ensure that the products are of consistent high quality. Secondly, our quality control team consists of highly trained individuals who are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to evaluate the quality of every product from every batch lot.


Our ultimate goal is to become a just-in-time-one-stop-shop for all our customers and support them in all necessary areas such a technical, regulatory, supply consistency, market visibility etc. thereby ensuring they can focus all their energy on creation and business development.

Our large inventory and prompt delivery schedules ensures that our customers do not have to tie up working capital and warehouses with unused inventory. We are committed to providing quick, reliable service and handle every customer inquiry with priority and in complete confidence.


Our long-term partnership model with our suppliers gives us a unique advantage, which we pass on to our customers ensuring that all customers receive very competitive pricing at fair credit terms allowing them to compete in the global arena.

We are extremely flexible and present our customers with various different solutions in terms of packaging, delivery scheduling of long-term contracts (annual/quarterly/monthly), credit terms, groupage of different items etc. and are also pleased to work with them to prepare a customized solution, thereby enabling them to derive the best value from their investment in raw materials.
