  • A flavorist is a chemist responsible for discovering just the right combinations of certain substances, such as chemicals, botanical extracts and essential oils, to create and re-create natural and artificial flavors for use in food and beverage products, oral hygiene products, lip cosmetics, vitamins and medicines. This career requires seven years of hands-on study -- five years of intensive study and two years apprenticing as a junior flavorist -- before professional certification as a senior or master of the craft. Common traits that flavorists share are strong creative, mathematics, organic chemistry, communication and recordkeeping skills.
