Fragrance Industry Mourns Laurette Heinz of Bell, CPL’s Bernal

January 29, 2013

The fragrance industry lost a familiar face, when Laurette Heinz, matriarch of Bell Flavors and Fragrances, died on Nov. 28, 2012. She was the wife of the late Edward N. Heinz, who bought Bell in 1968, and mother of co-presidents James and Raymond Heinz, as well as shareholder and board members Edward N. “Reb” Heinz III, Cissy Natale and Gigi Enriquez.

The fragrance industry also lost another member, as CPL Aromas announced that Camilo Bernal died on Nov. 30, 2012 following a short battle with cancer. He was 59, and leaves behind his wife, Alicia, and two daughters.

Bernal worked for CPL in Colombia for 16 years as a senior perfumer and is credited for much of the company’s success in Latin America as his creations proved successful with so many customers in the region, the company said in a statement.

Bernal began his career in Barcelona where he studied as a trainee taking up positions with companies such as Esencias R.B.G, Lucta, Eurofragrance and Rossyl SA. He joined CPL Aromas in 1997.
