Fragrance Creators Association has welcomed Veronique Scailteur, director external relations, perfumes, at Chanel, back to its board of directors.
Scailteur, who previously served on the board from 2018-2019, oversees Chanel’s public affairs efforts on perfumes, working closely with its laboratory of fragrance creation and development.
With decades of experience leading fragrance-related technical issues and government affairs, Scailteur brings to the board an expertise in the intersection of perfume safety and policy.
Prior to joining Chanel, Scailteur served as an independent consultant with the Brunswick Group, a global advisory firm in public affairs. Until mid-2015, she was head of Procter & Gamble’s European government relations and public policy office.
During her tenure, she held various global roles and responsibilities for product safety, environment, and regulatory affairs. She earned a pharmacy degree from Université catholique de Louvain and a Ph.D. in toxicology.
Over the years, she has served on a number of industry boards and chaired many working groups, both in the United States and in Europe, engaging on topics of chemicals, cosmetics, detergents, brands and more.
In addition to her work with the Personal Care Products Council, Scailteur serves on the board of directors of the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM).
“I’m grateful to return to the Fragrance Creators board of directors, especially at such a pivotal time for the organization and our industry,” said Scailteur. “I share the association’s deep respect for the artistry of fragrance and am confident in the association’s technical and policy prowess as we move forward—together—to represent the fragrance value chain.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Veronique back to the board,” said Farah K. Ahmed, president and CEO of Fragrance Creators. “Her experience, perspective, and passion for fragrance make her a meaningful addition to our leadership as we continue to drive positive impacts for people, perfume and the planet.”
