One of the best aspects of my internship was being at the center of the fragrance creation of Firmenich. The organization has offices across the globe but the one in New York is where a significant part of fragrance creation takes place. Moreover, the office is the biggest contributor to Firmenich’s fragrance revenues despite being smaller than the one located in Paris. Some of the best perfumers in the world work there, which allowed me to be in contact with them on a daily basis. Most of them were kind to take me for face-to-face lunches where they were ready to answer all the questions I might have had.
I am unable to answer this question without mentioning the key role that my manager played throughout my stay. She has been nothing short of a mentor from the very first day, consistently asking me about my views on the company and the work I was doing. Trying to share me with great tips and advice.
