The American Society of Perfumers (ASP) will unite the fragrance industry – from supplier to formulator to marketer to perfumer – in an evening of networking, perfumer artistry and product development. The event is designed to foster collaboration and commerce.

null 4-6 PM

The evening begins with tours of the Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show, where orchids in an amazing array of colors, shapes, sizes, and textures explode in an elaborate kaleidoscopic displays.

6-8 PM

Following the tour, explore six fragranced products that took the "orchid mystique" inspiration to fully realized finished product.

The hosted reception features a variety of vignettes highlighting ingredient suppliers, perfumers and cosmetic formulators – and their creations. Each vignette selects an orchid varietal to create a scent that depicts the essence of the given orchid. These vignettes will feature finished fine fragrance, personal care products and scented candles.

As they explore, guests have the opportunity to network with colleagues while enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

“An Evening of Exploration: Orchid Mystique will help bridge the gap of suppliers, marketers, formulators and perfumers involved in fragrance product development,” says Chris DiIenno, President of the American Perfumer Society. “It is our goal to foster collaboration between the Art and Science of Perfumery and expose the value of our expertise as they combine to form our amazing finished products. Orchids with their natural beauty, form and functionality are the perfect embodiment of this concept.”
