IFF, ISIPCA To Create Fragrance Master’s Program

Three-year scent design and creation program in Versailles.

International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. has forged a partnership with ISIPCA, the French school dedicated to creating careers in perfume, cosmetics and food flavors, to establish a new three-year master’s program in scent design and creation at ISIPCA’s Versailles, France campus.
 
“This partnership combines IFF’s 127-year creative legacy with the proven academic excellence that has made ISIPCA the world’s premier fragrance school. It’s a wonderful opportunity to participate in the training of future perfumers and scent designers,” noted IFF fragrances group president Nicolas Mirzayantz.  “The new framework and partnership with ISIPCA is an evolution off IFF’s existing perfumery school and we believe it will provide enhanced support to our Vision 2020 business strategy, where talent is a key enabler.”
 
According to Mirzayantz, the partnership “breaks new ground in our industry, building on IFF’s legacy of pioneering firsts. We look forward to expanding and diversifying our fragrance talent pipeline to meet the increasing demand of consumers for new and exciting scent experiences. This is an incredible time for our industry and we are thrilled to partner with ISIPCA to help power our ability to meet the opportunities of the future.”
 
Active recruitment efforts are now underway and prospective students can find more information at ISIPCA’s website.
 
“We are very proud of having trained so many of the world’s most successful and influential perfumers, including many at IFF. There is a beautiful symmetry to bringing IFF’s talent onto our campus and offering their unique and practical expertise in this new program. Their fresh perspective and proven success will be a valued addition to our offerings,” said Cecile Ecalle Montier, managing director, ISIPCA.
