Brought to You by … Perfume

In sometimes surprising ways, associations play direct and indirect roles in bringing the products, services, and activities of daily life to people around the world. Including perfume.

International Perfume Bottle Association

Collectors of fragrance vessels from the exquisite to the offbeat who need help identifying the provenance of their treasures find it through the International Perfume Bottle Association. See why collectors are captivated at IPBA’s virtual museum, which showcases examples from funky ’50s atomizers to ancient unguent jars dating to 1850 BC.

Fragrance Creators Association

Sending the message that it’s about advocacy as well as aroma, the International Fragrance Association North America rebranded in May as the Fragrance Creators Association during the inaugural Congressional Fragrance Caucus on Capitol Hill.

American Society of Perfumers

The rigorously trained professionals of the American Society of Perfumers have been passing down the secrets of scent creation to members since 1947. Harmonizing ingredients is only half their job—fragrances must hold up in myriad consumer products, from lotions to laundry detergent.
