DART (Direct Analysis in Real Time) is an innovative technology to analyze complex solid samples at atmospheric pressure and ground potential by simply placing them between a DART ion source and a mass spectrometer. The analytes are ionized by a gun of neutral metastable species. The first examples of the application of DART to the analysis of flavor and fragrance raw materials in real, complex applications are reported here. A remarkably high potential of the technique is demonstrated. DART was applied to semi-quantitative analyses of perfumery raw materials deposited on smelling strips. In optimal cases, limits of detection around 100 pg were achieved. DART also allowed the assessment of the deposition and release of fragrance on surfaces such as fabric and hair. Finally, DART permitted the screening of twelve chewing gum samples for the possible presence of taste-refreshing compounds in less than 30 min.
