If you work in the fragrance field, you already know that The Fragrance Foundation is an organization you need to be involved in. The organization was established in 1949 by six industry leaders affiliated with Elizabeth Arden, Coty, Guerlain, Helena Rubenstein, Chanel and Parfums Weil, to develop educational programs about the importance and pleasures of fragrance for the American public. The Foundation’s International Membership includes all sorts of people, but mostly: manufacturers, suppliers, media, advertising and public relations agencies as well as designers, packagers and retailers. The organization maintains one of the most extensive print and video fragrance libraries in the world and among other things, holds seminars and symposia for its members as well as for the international fragrance industry.
Although I don’t often get a chance to attend, the Fragrance Foundation has absolutely amazing events, both educational, and for networking. One such event that I did attend was entitled: “Pop Your Cork…Naturally.” The evening event, presented by The Fragrance Foundation’s Associate Board on June on June 21, 2011 at the City Winery in Manhattan (155 Varick Street), featured a unique, four-course tasting menu with organic and locally-sourced ingredients, paired not just with organic wine, but also with a special group of natural fragrance accords.
