TFF Luncheon 2023

A digital platform for dialogue about fragrance, and the way that it relates to community and culture.

SPOTLIGHT: ARTEMIS PATRICK, CIRCLE OF CHAMPIONS HONOREE

On October 25th, TFF celebrated 2022 Circle of Champions honoree Artemis Patrick. As Executive Vice President and Global Chief Merchandising Officer for Sephora, Patrick’s impact on how fragrance is bought and sold cannot be under-stated, and the evening highlighted not only the inspiring breadth of her achievements—from the way she has pioneered Sephora’s retail prowess to her dedication to DEI and ensuring inclusivity within the company and on the sales floor—but also the unflappable attitude, enterprising vision, and sense of fun that she brings to work every day (always in her signature cowboy boots). For this edition of ACCORDS, Patrick reflects on her career, and what it means to be recognized for accomplishments so close to her heart.

SENSE & SENSIBILITY: MEET THE 2022 TFF FIT DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

The Fragrance Foundation FIT Diversity Scholarship, introduced in 2021, is a powerful door-opener for students from diverse backgrounds interested in pursuing careers in scent. The annual, $100,000 academic award is dedicated to helping students on both the undergraduate and graduate levels of FIT’s Cosmetics and Fragrance education programs follow their dreams—and, ultimately, bring their creativity and passion to the fragrance business as a whole. This year’s winners, Yasmin Hussein and Monique McKenzie, both undoubtedly innovators-in-the-making, share their love of fragrance, their professional and academic aspirations, and how their commitment to #FragranceForwardTFF will build a better tomorrow for all.

WHAT THE NOSE KNOWS: HOLIDAY CANDLE PERFUMERS

Just in time for the holiday season, Perfumers Olivier Pescheux (Givaudan), Catherine Selig (Takasago) and Jerome Epinette (Robertet) share the inspirations behind their holiday candles and their own holiday scent memories. Learn the story behind Olivier Pescheux’s holiday candle trio for diptyque, Catherine Selig’s St. Nicholas candle for Harlem Candle Company and Jerome Epinette’s Holiday candle for NEST New York.

THE INSIDE SCOOP: LINDA G. LEVY

Our November Accords includes valuable and inspiring content from 3 perspectives: our 2022 Champion, Sephora’s Artemis Patrick, the first ever TFF FIT Diversity Scholarship recipients, and perfumers who share their holiday candle creativity. Although their roles are certainly different – retail executive, students and perfumers – all share their passion and appreciation of fragrance.
