The 50th Anniversary Edition: Past, present and future

5-6 December 2023

Global Fragrance Summit 2023: The 50th Anniversary Edition: Past, present and future’ is our opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the fragrance industry of the past half century, where we are today, and what the next 50 years holds.

The 50th anniversary of the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) is significant as it celebrates half a century of the organization's work in promoting the safety and sustainability of the fragrance industry. IFRA sets standards and guidelines for the safe use of fragrances in products such as perfumes, cosmetics, and household items. As consumers become increasingly conscious of the ingredients in their products, IFRA's work in promoting safe and sustainable use, transparency and credible product stewardship is crucial. The 50th anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect on the progress made in the industry and to look towards the future of fragrances in a sustainable and ethical manner.
