Educating the Industry's Future Perfumers


IFF and ISIPCA announce their partnership to educate future perfumers and food flavorists by establishing a Master of Science Scent Design and Creation Manager program.

ISIPCA describes the program as "a unique three years' course in English with [the] ability to access career opportunities within the exciting world of fragrances upon graduation." Students entering into the full-time program are offered global internship opportunities. During the three years, students are offered a chance to explore various career specializations, including perfumer, evaluator and technologists. This will be offered at ISIPCA's campus in Versaille, France.

In a recent press release, Cecile Ecalle Montier, managing director, ISIPCA, said, "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,”
