This award pays tribute to everyone at Givaudan for their creativity, passion and contribution to our wonderful fine fragrance industry. Being part of this beautiful industry, one of artistry and craftsmanship coupled with innovation, has profoundly impacted my life. The power of fragrances to evoke emotions, to stir memories and to bring joy to people’s lives is an enduring contribution that we can all be proud of,” commented said Gilles Andrier.

Gilles Andrier is an exemplary purpose-driven leader whose strategic vision and passion for the fragrance industry is evident in everything he does and how he leads. Our shared values and vision for the world of fragrance puts the people, products and perfumers at the centre. He has been at the forefront of driving sustainability and DEI initiatives within his organisation, building community and bridging business goals with love for nature. We are extremely proud to bestow this honour in recognition of Givaudan’s heritage and to Gilles’ legacy,” said Linda G. Levy, President of The Fragrance Foundation.
