Fragrance Creators Association president and CEO, Farah K. Ahmed, and National Candle Association (NCA) executive director, Robert Pignato, released a joint statement emphasizing the importance of coordination across the entire fragrance value chain to help deliver positive impacts for people, perfume and the planet.
On November 18, 2021, FCA presented a one-hour webinar hosted by NCA, outlining key priorities for advancing responsible industry stewardship and areas for continued coordination between the trade associations.
The webinar featured remarks by Farah K. Ahmed, president and CEO, Fragrance Creators; Amanda Nguyen, vice president, Government Affairs & Legal, Fragrance Creators; and Darci Ferrer, chief scientist, Fragrance Creators.
“The growth of scented candle sales during the pandemic highlighted the important wellness benefits that fragrance delivers to our daily lives. The fragrance value chain is facing unprecedented impacts including significant supply chain challenges and increased regulatory activity, as well as new opportunities to advance innovation (green fragrance chemistries) and consumer understanding of the benefits that scented products provide. We look forward to continuing to work together, and with all responsible stakeholders, to advance responsible policies and programs—for people, perfume, and the planet.”
