Creating Natural Experiences Through Fragrance
Sherri Sebastion, senior perfumer at Fragrance West, will explore the relation of the scent of flavors and fragrances in our everyday experience. Take a moment to step away from formulations, ingredients, and paperwork to reconnect with your original inspiration for working in the industry. Embrace new ways to reconnect with the less tangible, yet instinctually understandable nature of aromatic compositions.

Sherri Sebastian,
senior perfumer at Fragrance West, has 24 years of experience in the flavor and fragrance industry. As a perfumer in New York City and Los Angeles, she’s developed fragrances for the personal care, fine fragrance, air care, natural, and niche markets. She holds a degree in Food Science and began her career as a flavor chemist apprentice at a Brooklyn flavor house before joining the fragrance industry. Her fascination with the subtle interplay of ingredients fuels her passion for fragrance development, while her travels and trend work inform her approach. “The ultimate goal is to convey each brands unique essence with the perfectly crafted scent”, Sebastian says.
