Fragrance Innovation Summit

From naturalness to new technologies, ethics, transparency and new marketing concepts, the perfume industry is continuously reinventing itself to keep seducing and attracting consumers. New ingredients, new notes, new applicators, new textures, new features: there are plenty of opportunities and avenues for innovation, which are methodically explored by brands, suppliers and distributors.

The 2019 edition of the Fragrance Innovation Summit gave us an overview of the major market trends, the latest innovations, emerging technologies and testimonials from professionals.

Come and join us in 2020 to meet like-minded industry professionals.
