Fragrance Du Bois hosted 45 students from Raffles College at the Starhill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur on February 24, 2016 an informative session on the art of perfumery and the world of fragrance. The session provided insight into different aspects of the fragrance industry, mainly focusing on manufacturing, retail and marketing.
Students were also given the opportunity to learn about sustainable ingredient sourcing. Fragrance Du Bois provided its 100% pure sustainable oud oil to educate students on the importance of implementing sustainable and ethical sourcing in fragrance formulation.
"We are very concerned about the future of the environment and the communities who live in it," said Johanna Tabuyo, sales and operations director of Fragrance Du Bois. "As part of our ethos of giving back to society, we believe it is imperative to educate the younger generation on sustainability and environmental awareness, especially in the luxury goods industry, where sustainability has been put on the 'back burner' for far too long.
Tabuyo continued, "At Fragrance Du Bois, however, we practice what we preach, and we embrace our mantra of 'Luxury with a Conscience' wholeheartedly. On behalf of Fragrance Du Bois," she concluded, "I am delighted that this initiative has created a fantastic opportunity to educate and inspire the next generation in our collective efforts to secure a sustainable future."
Students were also treated to a session of perfume formulation, studying the olfactory groups that are paired together in the assigned composition.
