Solubilization techniques by surfactants are very useful to dissolve perfumes into many industrial products having the medium of water. Since the molecular structures of perfumes are intricate, it is difficult to predict solubilization of perfumes. In the present review, the solubility of perfumes into micellar phase and their solubilization mechanism were described. The characteristics of solubilization of perfumes in a variety of systems : solubilization of binary mixed perfume system, solubilization by mixed surfactant system, and solubilization by concentrated surfactant solution system, were also shown in this review. Moreover, mechanism of volatility of perfumes from aqueous surfactant solutions and controlled release of perfumes using phase transition of aqueous surfactant solutions were explained.
