The Schimmel-Bibliothek

Tradition since 1878


The Schimmel-Bibliothek, founded in 1878, is one of the largest collections of books, periodicals and other information on flavours, fragrances and essential oils ever assembled. With over 30.000 volumes, the library stands as a symbol of the innovations which were discovered there.

Bell is proud to be the caretaker of this important historical information and keeps the library accessible by hosting such events as the “30th International Symposium on Essential Oils” in 1999.
