IFRA (International Fragrance Organization) is organizing a new edition of their half-day conference entitled The Pros and Cons of Modern Fragrance, to be held this year in Paris on September 9, 2010 from 9 am to 13:15 pm. Last year the event took place in Brussels.
The overall question that speakers will help answer is: "Fragrance in our Lives -- A choice worth making?"...
Two of the same topics will be covered by returning speakers. Professor Tim Jacob,
This year the topic of anosmia is entrusted to Prof. Thomas Hummel of The Smell and Taste Clinic at the University of Dresden Medical School, Germany.
Rather than to speak of sensitization, in 2010 it's the question of allergies in the population which will be tackled by Prof. Thomas L. Liepgen M.D., Ph.D. University Hospital Heidelberg, Germany.
The meaning of scents for life, which perfumer Christophe Laudamiel covered last year, this time will be addressed by perfumer Laurence Fanuel of Takasago International, Ph.D in biochemistry.
Jean-Pierre Houri, the Director General of IFRA, will introduce the day's talks.
