IFRA UK Fragrance Forum 2016

W

elcome to IFRA United Kingdom’s Fragrance Forum 2016.

We are delighted to be returning to The Wellcome Trust Lecture Theatre at The Royal Society and to welcome so many guests and members to attend this exciting annual symposium which has become such a stimulating fixture in the perfumery calendar. Today we take the theme: Do You Smell Well? or, if you prefer, Do You Smell? Well! IFRA UK’s members develop fragrances that enhance well-being and the enjoyment of life. This year we have invited a number of eminent speakers to address the topic of smell, fragrance and well-being. They will discuss the therapeutic aspects of fragrance and fragrance materials, both now and historically, as well as the health, psychological and social problems for those who don’t smell well or don’t smell at all. To round off the day, we will be reviewing some interesting wines for their smell as well as their taste. During the course of today, we will range across all age groups, from smell and new-born babies to the effects of smell for those older people with dementia. IFRA UK’s Members, many of whom we welcome today, are experts in fragrance creation. That expertise is backed and informed by IFRA ensuring that, by using our Members, customers are guaranteed the benefits accruing from the IFRA Code of Practice. The key benefits are consistency of approach and compliance. The Fragrance Forum is just one way in which, as an Association, we help to communicate the art and the science behind fragrance creation and promote a better understanding of olfaction and the importance of smell in our lives. Today’s Fragrance Forum would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and partners. We are indebted to this year’s Gold sponsors who are: CPL Aromas and MANE; our Silver sponsors: Emerald Kalama Chemical; Formpak; and Symrise; and our Bronze sponsors: Phoenix Fragrances, Eternis and Firmenich. We also thank EFF who are sponsoring beverages and wines both over lunch and the tasting session. We also extend a warm welcome to our exhibitors, and to those who have donated gifts for delegates. Above all, we thank you, the members, friends and guests of IFRA UK, for joining us for this, the 2016 Fragrance Forum. Images will be available soon, so please contact us if you would like to receive any of these. We wish you a day that smells well. Best Wishes

IFRA United Kingdom Secretariat.
