Flipo becomes only the fifth IFF perfumer to hold the honour
International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) has named Anne Flipo Master Perfumer.
She joins a list of only five perfumers with the accolade including Francisco Marano and Stephen Nicoll, who were awarded the honour in September 2018. Carlos Benaim became a Master Perfumer in 2013 and Dominique Ropion, in 2018.
According to IFF, its decision to award Flipo was due to her demonstration to consistent and outstanding levels of creativity and craftsmanship in the art of perfumery, and exceptional leadership in and measurable impact on the industry.
“One of the great distinctions about IFF is the sheer quality and extraordinary talent of our people,” said Andreas Fibig, IFF Chairman & CEO.
“Our perfumers create fragrances that form the sensory backdrop to people’s lives – something Anne understands well. I am thrilled at her recognition, not only for her lifetime of achievements thus far, but for the great things we continue to expect from her.”
