Grasse Expertise will be at Le Salon International des Matières Premières pour la Parfumerie (SIMPPAR, the International Exhibition of Raw Materials for Perfumery), a Paris trade show organized and hosted by La Société Française des Parfumeurs (Society of French Perfumers).

This international professional event is a matchless opportunity to meet, converse, and do business with other experts from the perfume industry (perfumers, evaluators, processors, formulators, buyers, marketing directors, regulatory affairs managers, etc.).

This trade show is also a showcase for our expertise: an alliance of multiple forms of authentic, venerable savoir-faire that advances innovation in the family of fragrance-related industries.

Our members recognize the importance of this gathering: Frédérique Rémy from Floral Concept calls it “a key trade show for presenting our raw materials to perfumers, our chance to remind the world that the Pays de Grasse is the birthplace of these forms of expertise that cannot be found anywhere else.” Albert Vieille’s Elisabeth Campana agrees: “It’s important for us in Grasse, the time-honored cradle of perfumery and raw materials, to show how innovative and dynamic we are.” “We’re delighted and honored to attend this trade show to share our Grasse savoir-faire through the ingredients developed at our research hub, Le Centre d’Expertise des Naturels,” adds Firmenich.

Enjoy a special presentation on Thursday, June 5, at 11:30 a.m.: “Grasse Expertise: Coopetition in an International Market”

The event draws larger crowds each year and attendance should again reach or exceed that of 2017 with more than 1,500 admissions.

On the evening of June 5, La Société Française des Parfumeurs will present its 31st “Young Perfumer-Creator” award in a ceremony that has been an industry highlight since 1957.
