German term or phrase: Aroma- und Duftstoffe
'flchtige Stoffe, wie Gase, Wasserdampf, Aroma- und Duftstoffe'
Is there a difference between Aromastoffe and Duftstoffe and if so how could this be translated into English?

English translation:aromatic compounds and substances
Explanation:
Aroma and Duft are difficult to translate as it could mean the same thing, but I will try to explain the meaning:

Aroma = flavour (Lebensmittel)
Aromaten = aromatic compounds (Chemie)
Duftstoff = aromatic substance (scents).

Hope this helps you!

I agree with Ione but here is more


Explanation:
Aroma would refer more to a taste on your tongue and duft to someting you could smell. Which in the case of perfume means the following:
aroma will be for the full body, stronger fragrance(s), the ones that will linger, while duft will refer to your first impression of the perfume, the very volatile fragrances that will soon have disappeared once in contact with the air.
Patchouli would be best described as aroma while lemon would be duft.
Enjoy?
