Bell Flavors & Fragrances is pleased to announce Perfumer, Delphine Perdon Rupnow has been named Apprentice Director for the Board of the American Society of Perfumers.  Additionally, Bell’s Fragrance Evaluation Manager, Melissa Scharoff, was accepted as an Apprentice in the American Society of Perfumers earlier this year.

The American Society of Perfumers
The American Society of Perfumers is a non-profit organization, founded in 1947, with a current membership of approximately three hundred qualified perfumers. The American Society of Perfumers has officers and a Board of Directors, who are nominated and voted into office by the membership to uphold the Bylaws and provide a vision for the future. The main goal of the American Society of Perfumers is to foster and encourage the art and science of perfumery in the United States and to represent our community internationally. The membership promotes agendas to educate, support and empower Perfumers and offer many opportunities to meet and consult with some of the most accomplished individuals in fragrance.

In Delphine’s role at American Society of Perfumers, she will be responsible in supporting the society in a variety of capacities, such as offering her leadership on their social media platforms and in board meetings. In addition, the new by-laws have shortened the Apprentice Perfumer program from five years to three, which will make Delphine a full member in January 2022.

Delphine states, “I am thrilled of having been appointed Apprentice Director of the American Society of Perfumers, and I will serve the society as best as I can for the upcoming year. As a Perfumer, it is truly an honor to be part of such a renowned group of professionals, and I also would like to thank my company and my colleagues for supporting me in this new role.

Melissa Scharoff accepted as Apprentice of The American Society of Perfumers
Accepted in January 2021 as an Apprentice of the American Society of Perfumers, Melissa will be confirmed as a full member January 2024. Currently Melissa is training with Bell Senior Perfumer, Steve Orson and Bell’s entire Perfumery team over the next several years, working to become a Perfumer herself.
