The annual awards honor rising professionals in the fragrance industry. And member companies have a few weeks left to recommend individuals for the distinction.

Established in 1949, The Fragrance Foundation is a non-profit professional organization with over 80 corporate members globally. The group’s board of directors includes fragrance industry leaders from top fragrance makers, beauty manufacturers, retailers, and more; such as Firmenich, MANE, IFF, Puig, Robertet, NEST Fragrances, Arcade Beauty, Ulta Beauty, and Sephora.

“The Fragrance Foundation is dedicated to serving its member companies as a resource for industry expertise, innovation and education,”​ according to And the group is “passionately devoted to increasing the awareness and appreciation of fragrance in all its forms.”

Looking ahead 

In 2018, The Fragrance Foundation will honor the fourth cohort of The Notables. The awards have been given annually since 2015 to professions described as “the future of the fragrance industry,”​ according to the organization’s online nomination form. “They are the movers and the shakers of tomorrow. They have good ideas, make team contributions and understand hard work.”

Many of the 2017 award winners were marketing professionals​, a consequence of the digital age perhaps. As Elizabeth Musmanno, then president of the foundation, told Cosmetics Design at last year’s celebration event, “communication skills are more important than ever in fragrance”​ ​and with so much going on in the digital space, with consumers (and professionals) getting a bulk of their information online, communication skills are increasingly valuable for every fragrance professional.

Now eligible 

Nominations are open only to members of The Fragrance Foundation. And, each member company can submit only one nomination. Individuals being recommended for the award must be 34 or younger and working in the fragrance industry.

The nomination must come from a direct manager or someone in the company who interacts regularly with the individual. And, perhaps most importantly, “nominees should have exemplary leadership qualities with measurable success,” ​according to the online form.

The deadline for nominations for The Notables 2018 is Friday, December 8. For more information, click here​.
