WFFC 32nd Annual Gala

On Thursday, September 18th, 2014, the WFFC held their 32nd Annual Gala at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, NJ. Nearly 700 industry professionals enjoyed the opportunity to network while enjoying the evening’s festivities. For the first time in the organization’s history, the WFFC chose an international Honoree, Karine Lebret-Leroux, Fine Fragrance Creation & Development Director for L’Oreal Luxe in France. Karine currently oversees the creation and development of 14 luxury brands including Armani, Lancome, Yves Saint Laurent, Viktor & Rolf and Martin Margiela.

WFFC President, Celine Roche, welcomed the guests to the gala and introduced an exciting video, which highlighted the WFFC’s recent events from all chapters including Chicago and Cincinnati. The video then featured a tribute to Karine and all of her many accomplishments as her collaborators and coworkers gave accolades. Introduced by Guillaume De Lesqun, President - Ralph Lauren Fragrances Worldwide, Karine accepted the award and was very touched and honored to be recognized. L’Oreal generously donated two scents - Si by Armani and La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme, which were given as gifts to the attendees. 

Every year the WFFC honoree chooses a charity to support and this year St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was selected. In line with the WFFC’s mission, a portion of the evening's proceeds were donated to St. Jude to support the organization’s lifesaving mission to improve the treatment of childhood cancer and find cures for other deadly diseases. In addition, the WFFC  created a donation link for individuals to continue to support the cause. The WFFC is thankful to IFF, Firmenich, Mane and Givaudan as our platinum sponsors as well as all of the attendees for their support making this event a huge success.
