Meet our Masters JOHANNES FESER

Master Perfumer
“On a recent trip to Morocco, I had the opportunity to visit with a local lady and discover how she washes her family’s garments. After handwashing her husband’s shirt, she handed it to me and said: ‘See for yourself how nice it smells.’ It was my own fragrance and a moment I will never forget.”

Meet our Masters Tony Reichert

Master Perfumer
“Every day I realize how lucky I am to have found a career that I have been able to be passionate about for over 40 years. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.”

Meet our Masters Martin Koh

Master Perfumer
"First, I picture the perfume in my head. I then build it with the ingredients, bit by bit, part by part. It’s a construction."

Meet our Masters Gary Marr

Master Perfumer
“Just as in music, the beauty of a fragrance comes from its construction, its form, as much as it does from its content and notes. The construction allows for the notes or ingredients to perform their magic.”

Meet our Masters Eckhart Simbt

“Flowers are one of the sweetest things created by nature, and as a Perfumer I am so lucky to be able to work with them every day and relay through them emotions.”

Thought Leader in Sustainability

Shared Senses in India AN INCLUSIVE APPROACH

Working with the Naandi Foundation, our longtime partner in India, we have created the ‘Shared Senses’ program to gather insights directly from local consumers at the "bottom of the pyramid." Firmenich has trained and coached low-income adults to equip them to work as interviewers; in turn, they conduct non-intrusive dialogues in their communities to build our database of consumer opinion on fragrance.
In 2013, we scaled up the project to conduct regular testing in hygiene, Body Care and Home Care fragrances, to guide our creation for low-income consumers.

At the World Corporate Social Responsibility Congress in Mumbai in 2013, together with the Naandi Foundation, Firmenich was selected from among 2,500 applicants as the winner of the Sustainability Leadership Award in the category of Best Project Collaboration for our ‘Shared Senses’ program.

Consumers are at the heart of our creation and innovation. Firmenich maintains a vast and deep knowledge base of consumers’ fragrance habits, needs and preferences. From the first stages of the development process, right through to the end, we rely on consumer feedback and sensory panel evaluation to ensure that Firmenich fragrances make our customers’ brands desirable.

In Consumer Fragrances, we deliver outstanding perfumes that help cement the bond between a consumer and a brand, naturally.
