During the four days of Paris Perfume Week, come and attend conferences and roundtable discussions entirely dedicated to olfactory culture, and rediscover how everything in our lives ultimately boils down to… a nose!

This first edition of Paris Perfume Week offers nearly forty sessions with themes enriched by diverse speakers: there’s no doubt you’ll find more than one to inspire you, pique your curiosity, and refine your knowledge. It’s also an opportunity to invite a friend passionate about oenology, a neighbor who is a historian, or a cinephile acquaintance to broaden their horizons through the tip of their nose!

On Thursday, March 21st, you’ll have the opportunity to attend a conference on the Per Fumum endowment fund created by Francis Kurkdjian (Director of Creation at Parfums Christian Dior) to support initiatives related to perfume. Additionally, there will be a discussion on olfactory culture in the Middle East, and a roundtable on young talent in perfumery featuring perfumers from fragrance houses Symrise, Mane, and DSM-Firmenich.

Friday, March 22nd, will spotlight women in the perfume industry and will also focus on the scent of cleanliness around the world, perfume chemistry, and natural ingredients in perfumery.
