Industry leaders from L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, LVMH, Coty, Unilever, Puig, Interparfums, Chanel and Hermes, gathered together on Monday evening to celebrate the 100th anniversary of BEAUTY FASHION at the exclusive Cercle de L’Union Interalliee in Paris. The event was sponsored by Symrise which has a 220 year heritage in fine fragrance having enabled the creation of such iconic scents as Jicky by Guerlain through the innovation of synthetic Vanillin as well as the exquisite perfumery bases from Fabrique DeLaire, Shalimar, and more recently Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera and Comme des Garcons.

Two hundred guests -including Vogue Publisher Susan Plagemann and many other New Yorkers in Paris for the Women’s Ready to Wear shows, enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvre in the main salon of the club -which will also celebrate its 100th anniversary this year. International Live Fashion Artist Danielle Meder amused guests with quick sketches of themselves which were given as mementos of the evening in addition to a special scented candle created by Symrise with sustainable Vanilla from Madagascar to commemorate the event..

During cocktails, George Ledes, President & CEO of BEAUTY FASHION whose family has traditionally held a beauty industry dinner at Le Cercle de L’Union Interalliee for more than thirty years, proposed a toast to Achim Daub, President, Scent & Care, of Symrise thanking him and congratulating his company’s own milestone achievements with a 100 year old bottle of Domain Legrand Armagnac from 1917.

Phenom American Jazz Singer Cole Rumbough —whose great-grandmother, Marjorie Merriweather Post, built President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach residence and club, Mar-a-Lago, then kicked-off the evening with two classics from the Great American Songbook, Herman Hupfeld’s As Time Goes By and Sinatra’s The Best is Yet to Come!

A private client dinner was then held in the main dining room honoring some of the most important perfumers in the fragrance industry including Christine Nagel of Hermes; Symrise’s Master Perfumers Maurice Roucel and Emilie Copperman; as well as David Apel, Evelyne Boulanger, Alexandra Carlin, Pierre Gueros, Alienor Massenet and Elizabeth Vidal; and introducing the newest members of the Symrise sale team Veronique Ferval and Julianne Pruett. After dinner, two birthday cakes were presented by event organizer and L’Oreal veteran Jerome Bartau: one to Symrise CEO Dr. Heinz-Jeurgen Bertram, President Achim Daub and Sr VP Global Fine Fragrance Ricardo Omori, and the other to BEAUTY FASHION’s George Ledes.

Honored guests included Vicomtesse Adda de Vaulchier, legendary fragrance consultant Ann Gottlieb, BEAUTY FASHION Editor-in-Chief Christine Schott Ledes, L’Oreal’s Karine Lebret, Coty’s Sumit Bhasin, LVMH’s Ariane Premel Hermes’ Agnes de Villers, L’Oreal/Armani’s Roberta Girodot, Interparfums’ Philippe Benacin and Pierre Dessaules, Unilever’s Ann Cabotin, Cosmetique Magazine’s Sabine de Seze,, Korres’ Georges Bakas, Estee Lauder’s Lana Glazman, Ferragamo’s Giulio Gavotti, Puig’s Elizabeth Vidal, CL’Oreal/Ralph Lauren’s Eleanore Blum, Poshly’s Doreen Bloch, and Symrise’s Isabelle Vacheret and Doreen Bucher.
