On February 7th, The Fragrance Foundation celebrated the Notables class of 2023 with a festive event sponsored by L’Oréal Luxe at their Hudson Yards Headquarters. The 18 talented Notables represent the future of the fragrance industry and were honored for their leadership, creativity, passion, and potential.
Linda G. Levy opened the evening with a warm welcome to 200 of the fragrance community consisting of the Notables, their families & friends, as well as TFF Board Members and industry executives. For the past two years, the Notables event has been virtual due to the pandemic, so it was wonderful for friends and colleagues to gather and congratulate this year’s award winners.
Each remarkable Notable was introduced by a representative from the company that nominated them, while the Notable highlighted their career accomplishments and stated what they would do to enforce the TFF Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Pledge in the future.
This event continues to inspire us all with the recognition of excellence within the fragrance industry. It was an evening of celebration, giving thanks and joy of being back together with our Fragrance Family.
We will stay connected with 2023 Notables as they will now join the Notables Think Tank, to strategize and brainstorm on a wide array of initiatives, with former honorees of the past 8 years.
