The International Fragrance Association is hosting a five-day online course on the Art of Sustainable Perfumery from 22-26 November, focused on people working in the fragrance industry in India and students aspiring to work in the industry in the future.
The course, organized in conjunction with the International Society of Perfumer-Creators (ISPC) and Ultra International, brings together experts from around the world to uncover the history of perfumery, deepen their understanding about safety and sustainability, and learn about the art of fragrance creation.
Day 1 looks at the past and present of perfumery, as well as the words used to describe scents, with a focus on the IFRA Fragrance Ingredient Glossary.
Days 2 and 3 include practical smelling sessions, plus sessions on safe use (including the IFRA Standards), sustainability (including the IFRA-IOFI Sustainability Charter) and product categories, as well as writing a fragrance brief and understanding consumer expectations.
Day 4 looks at ethical considerations and retail issues, while Day 5 includes assessment, feedback and a graduation ceremony.
The course is organized in collaboration with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI) and Hindu College University of Delhi.
