Since 1946, the Givaudan Perfumery School has formed the elite of perfumery creation, to serve prestige brands and manufacturers of consumer products with the most enchanting fragrances. Built upon Givaudan’s heritage and unequalled expertise, mixing traditional learning techniques with innovation and digital tools, the Givaudan Perfumery School aims to unleash our pupils’ creativity, mastering the fragrance formulation.

After a rich four-years curriculum, we are delighted to unveil Givaudan’s new talents, celebrating the beginning of a new creative chapter for the industry.

“Our students have brilliantly embraced an intense olfactive journey, involving the understanding of 600 raw materials and all dimensions of perfumery’s craftsmanship. It has been a privilege to mentor such outstanding and diverse personalities. We look forward to seeing them craft the masterpieces of tomorrow with the most delightful and splendid scents.”

Calice Becker, VP Perfumer and Director of the Perfumery School

They are a wonderful demonstration of Givaudan’s mission to foster the future of fragrance, by guiding and encouraging aspiring perfumers from all over the world. The perfumery school exists to reveal, train and encourage the unique and widest diversity of future talents to bring tomorrow’s creative freedom.
