Heather Sims, director of Perfumery at Arylessence, a fragrance and flavor company based at 1091 Lake Drive in Marietta, created a unique perfume — Suit & Tie, which was premiered at a fragrance industry showcase for lawmakers and staff at the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington, D.C.
Sponsored by the International Fragrance Association North America, the showcase featured the original creations of three leading U.S.-based perfumers, each reflecting the theme, “Symphony of Scent.”
Inspired by the emotion, energy and contemporary edge of Justin Timberlake’s hit song “Suit & Tie,” which includes lyrics by rapper Jay Z, Sims created a classic scent for men, known as an aromatic fougere. Structured around lavender mid notes, top notes of bergamot and lemon, and deep bass notes of moss and soft woods, she added black pepper, artemisia and sea salt wrapped in tobacco, and lastly, amber, vanilla bean and musks.
Leading U.S. perfumers were selected by IFRA North America to showcase on Capitol Hill the importance and allure of today’s fragrances, which connect people to brands in fine fragrance, beauty and personal care, air care, laundry, household products and private label. The event also emphasized the scope and scale of the U.S. fragrance industry, which is a major employer and global exporter, as well as a significant creator of intellectual property and a key factor in the competiveness of consumer products.
