Spring is right around the corner, and The Fragrance Foundation (TFF) has selected March 21 as The Fragrance Day 2022™.

Learning what makes a fragrance excellent and right for you, is a lifelong exploration and a journey that I have  just started on. To that end, being able to learn from TFF is a joy and an opportunity to learn and share.

The goal of TFF is to introduce consumers everywhere to the transformative power of fragrance, and The Fragrance Day’s goal is to shine a spotlight on the latest trends that are influencing and shaping the industry. For 2022, these include a reinforced commitment to sustainability and fragrances that feature ingredients promoting wellness and self-care.

The Fragrance Day 2022 also serves to unite the fragrance community around the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion and the critical need to ensure that the industry accurately reflects the populations it serves and provides opportunities for people of all backgrounds to build and shape lasting careers.

The free event will be held on Monday, March 21, from 9 a.m. PST to 2 p.m. PST, and features exclusive content and real-time opportunities for the public to virtually engage with their favorite brands, industry experts, and influencers. The event will also include findings from Dr. Pamela Dalton, Research Scientist, the Monell Center on COVID’s effect on the sense of smell.
