Fragrance Innovation Summit

More natural formulations, biotech ingredients, sustainable packaging, transformed retail: the fragrance industry is experiencing an intense transformation, the most intense without doubt in its very long history.

The urgent and necessary ecological transition is at the heart of these changes, but is not the only innovation driver. The need to shorten, diversify and secure supply chains, to respond to new lifestyles and purchasing behaviours, to appeal to new generations within increasingly diverse markets also contribute to the creation of new scented experiences.

Let’s meet again on December 1, 2022 for a day of informative and educational presentations and networking opportunities 100% dedicated to perfume innovation!

New markets, new consumers, new technologies, new ingredients, emerging brands, influencers, creators, new test solutions, new retail concepts: a day of intense and dynamic debates for a 360° insights on tomorrow’s perfumes during a one-day conference focusing on four main themes:

  • New fragrance territories. Through an analysis of global market trends by The NPD Group, an overview of trends in China and South Korea, by Asia Cosme Lab, Meiyume and J.U.S., and in the USA by Cosmetics Inspiration & Creation and Spate.
  • New digital fragrance experiences. Featuring Noar’s connected objects and scent diffusers, analyses by Predicity, BWEEZ, Laure Braive and Sommelier du Parfum, and the experience of youtuber Demi Rawlings, who will unveil her new project in preview- first.
  • Holistic perfumery. Including the use of neuroscience by Givaudan, the development of a soothing fragrance by Til and Emsopin, and a panel discussion on the place of raw materials with regards to new consumer expectations, with Firmenich, Symrise, Caron and My Perfume is Me.
  • The green revolution in perfumery. Environmental issues will be the main topic this year, with eco-responsible single-dose solutions from Sampling Innovation, the role of blockchain with Map Emlusion, upcycling solutions presented by Alpes Cambium, natural and alcohol-free perfumery from Expressions Parfumées and Superga Beauty, an overview of new sustainable (bio)chemicals, an assessment of the contribution of refills, and the presentation of new solutions for more sustainable packaging.

A keynote speech by In•Signes and Trend Sourcing will open the day with a glimpse on how perfumery could enter the “symbiocene” era.

Two special guests, Alain Renaudin and Laurent Billon, will offer a larger view with a presentation on bio-mimicry and how it could boost fragrance innovation.
