Fashion, design, and perfume: a beautiful accord

Givaudan and the Condé Nast Center of Fashion & Design in Shanghai have launched ‘Universe of Perfume’, a course designed to demystify the world of fragrance. This is the first class of its kind bringing together creative minds from different spheres of the same artistic universe.


Where creative minds meet

For Arnaud, the pairing with Condé Nast is typical of the type of creative collaboration that is in Givaudan’s DNA:

“Givaudan has trained many of the world’s finest noses, and this all began when we established the world’s first perfumery school in 1946. Education is truly part of our soul, and, with this new collaboration, we continue to educate but in a way that suits today’s audiences, with engaging content, depth, and lots of interaction.”

He adds: “Fashion and perfumery have always been part of the same creative universe and it feels wholly natural to be in the same place as these talented bloggers, designers and brand experts.”
