FRANCE: International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) announced plans for a new European creative center for fine fragrances and toiletries in Paris. The 5000 square meter facility is based in Neuilly Sur Seine.
The facility will be the first major fragrance house in Paris to unite both fine fragrances and toiletries in one powerful unit, IFF executives said. The new facility will be leased and the company’s existing facilities in Bois Colombes have been sold. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.
“Fine fragrance is a cornerstone of IFF’s business, and we are committed to doing everything we can to meet the needs of our fine fragrance customers,” said Nicolas Mirzayantz, vice president, global business development, fine fragrances and toiletries. “Uniting and expanding fine fragrances and toiletries will ensure that IFF maximizes the creative synergies and consumer knowledge which exist between the two categories to the maximum benefit of our customers and their brands.”
