The fragrance business at Bell serves the personal care industry with scents for bath care, hair care, skin care and sun care applications. And the company’s ingredients business includes not only aroma chemicals but also ingredients for natural chemicals, including lactones.
Robert Siegel, most previously a perfumer with Bell, has stepped up into the senior perfumer role, according to a press release sent out Friday by the company.
The release celebrates his “extensive background in perfumery.” Siegel’s first position with Bell was as a fragrance lab technician in 1992. The company statement notes that “Robert was accepted as an apprentice member of the American Society of Perfumers in 2000 and a full member in 2005.”
In 2007 he went to work with Illinois-based Orchidia Fragrances, where he stayed until early 2011, according to his LinkedIn profile. Since then he’s been a perfumer with Bell.
Siegel’s Bachelor of Science degree in Biology is from Northern Illinois University.
