Welcome to the
British Society of Perfumers
The British Society of Perfumers was founded over 50 years ago, by perfumers, to help gain recognition and status in the perfume industry for perfumery as a profession. We currently have over 200 members, with four tiers of membership.

About Us

The British Society of Perfumers was formed in 1963 with the vision to promote the interests of individuals actively engaged as perfumers and to improve the status of perfumers by seeking wider recognition of perfumery as a profession.

Recently the Society has expanded to include Associate Members, Student Members and Friends of the Society, with a renewed purpose of promoting and supporting the craft of perfumers and related roles within the fragrance industry throughout the UK. As a forum for access to the fragrance industry many of our events are open to the public.

“Pleasures, small pleasures: I like the pleasures we pilfer from everyday life, they brighten the day. They are mundane, they feel repetitive, they reassure. If we overlook them we deprive ourselves of the joys that make life bearable.”
