Welcome to the 2017 IFEAT Athens Conference

I look forward to welcoming members and their partners to this beautiful, historical city with strong global links deriving from its shipping, finance, commerce, arts, culture and tourism sectors. This year, it will be a celebratory conference, as we mark 40 years since IFEAT’s inception in Kyoto in 1977; the theme will be “Celebrating 40 years of IFEAT”. There is much to celebrate, as our industry has flourished and IFEAT activities continue to expand. As part of the celebrations we shall be looking at “fragrances in antiquity”. The glorious era of Ancient Athens stands roughly halfway in the course of the 40 centuries of documented perfumery. With the unique smells of Greek origin such as labdanum or mastic, our conference will pay special tribute to the on-going discoveries around the fascinating richness of these ancient scents.
