Schimmel Library

The Schimmel Library is proof of the organisation‘s sound knowledge and innovative flair

Tradition since 1878

Founded in 1878, the historic library holds one of the largest collections of books and papers about flavours, essential oils, botanical extracts, perfume oils and fragrance molecules. With over 30,000 reference works, the library tells the story of every innovation that was ever created there. Bell is proud of this legacy and strives to maintain and nurture it and to make it accessible to everyone. The library provides a suitable and atmospheric environment not only for well-known congresses, such as for the International Symposium for Essential Oils, but also for conferences held by industry associations.
