About the Company


It is my pleasure to introduce you to Rose Fragrance Institute Corp. a place where my dream of working with rose fragrance has finally come true.

The main motivation to start up this institution was when I knew that I can work with Mr. Katsuyuki Yomogida and invite him into the company as the head of research, a job that suits him well with his long research in rose fragrance, and also gaining support from various people with the knowledge of roses and its fragrances.

We will further on research more about rose fragrance and a new type of business model for this institution, so we hope to gain your understanding and support.

We have just started up as a business and have many things to work with, but we will work for bringing up the image of RoFiC a little by little, so we wish to have warm support from people.
