Lorraine Miche de Malleray, IFF
Most vivid olfactory memory: The smell of not the tomato itself but the little stub that holds the tomato because my father had tomato plants in the Caribbean. All of his shirts are full of this smell. I love it.
Jacklyn Lee, Christian Dior Parfums
Favorite Plant: The Venus Flytrap comes to mind.
Jacquelyn Ward, Bath & Body Works
Most vivid olfactory memory: I brought tons of BBW soap when I moved to India and so that was my piece of home – Sweet Pea hand soap.
Galliane de Wendel, Coty
Most vivid olfactory memory: My countryside in France, especially when arriving in the night – it’s mixed with the smell of the forest and the woods that are nearby and the smell of an old house.
Justin Welch, Firmenich
Favorite Smell: I love the smell of Suntan lotion at the beach
Sophia McLoughlin, Chanel
Favorite Flower: Bougainvillea because I had it in my garden growing up in Morocco
Jessica Luc, Symrise
Favorite Food: Cookies – chocolate chip

Most vivid olfactory memory: That fresh smell right after it rains.
