Independent Fragrance Consultant
I have been in the fragrance industry for 20 years and a fragrance consultant since 2009. In that time I have built a substantial international network that includes multinationals in the FMCG sector, like Colgate Palmolive, Sara Lee, and Unilever, smaller niche clients, and the top four fragrance houses too – Givaudan, IFF, Firmenich, Symrise. With pleasure I can say that at all stages of my career, I have worked with the best perfumers in the world.
My fragrance career began with the marketing team of one of the top four fragrance houses: Quest International (now part of Givaudan) in the USA. I held several commercial positions for Quest in the US, UK, and the Netherlands that mainly involved the international FMCG companies but also some private labels.
Later I took a position with Rituals Cosmetics in the Netherlands that involved marketing, product development, innovation, strategy, and distribution channels for their full portfolio of 175 home and body care products.
Before becoming an independent consultant, I served as an Area Manager for Lucta, a Spanish fragrance house. However, after 11 years of working for companies, I was ready to start my own. I launched ISA Fragrances in 2009 as an independent fragrance consultant based in Barcelona.
