GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, JULY 28, 2020 

Celebrating its 125-year legacy, Firmenich, the world leader in Fine Fragrance, launches a new movement today entitled: RE|GENERATION. This global call-to-action embraces the radical optimism of change and examines how it will shape the future of the industry, engaging with the fragrance community, customers, consumers, artists and influencers.

 

“The time for a new dialogue is now, which is even more important as we navigate the current unprecedented global events,” said Jerry Vittoria, President, Fine Fragrance Worldwide. “It’s the right time for seeking new solutions, sparking new emotions, fueling new desires and capturing the imagination of our customers and consumers alike. RE|GENERATION invites us to work together to innovate, rejuvenate and drive the transformation of Fine Fragrance.”

 

RE|GENERATION
A new RE|GENERATION website invites talent, customers and consumers to join the conversation of leaders and disruptors in this movement. Content updates will shape discussions, exchanges and conversations on the future of fragrance: regeneration.firmenich.com. Users can also join the conversation on social media on @FirmenichFine using #FragranceIsCulture and #RegenerationReset as well.

 

With a forward-thinking mission, Firmenich Fine Fragrance is focused on using data to drive new technology and innovative offerings, making the benefits more vibrant, appealing and respectful for both customers and consumers worldwide.

 

Over the next few months, Firmenich Fine Fragrance will address how we can:

  • RE|THINK our relationship to history, environment, materials, ourselves and others

  • RE|ENGAGE through perfumery to fulfill people’s new aspirations

  • RE|IMAGINE a path that leads towards new positivity and a renewable future

  • RE|CREATE positive emotions to embrace nature and society

In September, Mind Nose + Matter will share insights, trends and vision to provide a clear understanding of today’s consumers.
