British Society of Perfumers start anniversary year with 'Olfactory Question Time'
The first event in the British Society of Perfumers fiftieth year is being held tonight in association with the Royal Society of Chemistry in Piccadilly. The sold-out event is a panel discussion featuring members of the perfume industry, answering questions from the audience.
The BSP say:
The sense of smell is the least understood of the 5 senses, this is an opportunity to engage in conversation with a fragrant panel of 6 leading industry experts covering a multitude of topics relating to fragrance. Fragrances have very powerful effects from enhancing lives, rehabilitation and triggering reactions and memories.
This scentsory question time based on the successful BBC TV & Radio programme, will also discuss creation, regulatory impact and marketing versus perfumery.
The panel are:
Kate Williams - Perfumer, Seven Scent Ltd
Lisa Hipgrave - IFRA UK
Penny Williams - Orchadia
Steve Pearce - CEO, Omega Ingredients
Will Andrews - Fine Fragrance Design Team, P&G Prestige
Grant Osborne - Basenotes
Chaired by John Bailey, BSP President
