Our panel of perfumers will meet you from across the globe, to share their life experiences as professional “noses”. What is the day in a life of a perfumer like…in the USA? UK? India? Greece? Creating for different applications, different projects – what is different; what is the same? What was the route to career like?
Join us for an international panel of professional perfumers in discussion with a moderator. Viewers will be unmuted for the Q&A when appropriate. Please note this webinar will be recorded. Due to the global nature of this virtual panel, the time is unusual – at 2pm UK time (BST). This event is organised jointly with the British Society of Perfumers (BSP) and the Fragrances and Flavours Association of India (FAFAI).

Stephen Nicoll: I have been with IFF (BBA) since 1986, for the last 27 years of which I have been working in the USA. I am a Master Perfumer, creating fragrances for Consumer Products globally based out of the Bell Works Creative Center in Holmdel, New Jersey, USA. What I love about Perfumery is that it is constantly changing and evolving, new ingredients, new consumer benefits, new technologies, new tools are constantly being developed and it is up to the Perfumer to understand how to create with them. I also feel fundamentally that as a Perfumer I should be very happy when the simple fragrances that I create can bring some enjoyment to so may people worldwide.
