The Vanilla aroma is the most used in the world but only 3% really comes from the Vanilla beans.
All the rest (about 97%) comes from the chemical synthesis of the Vanillin molecule (called simply “Vanillin”, it’s produced from the Phenol or residues of wood pulp containing Lignine) or from a transformation of a natural molecule to Vanillin, (called “Natural Aroma”, it typically comes from Ferulic Acid of the rice or from cloves).
