Paris, France (May 18, 2004) International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) today announced plans for a new European creative center for fine fragrances and toiletries in Paris. The new 5,000 square meter Parisian facility, based in Neuilly Sur Seine, is ideally located near all major Paris-based Fine Fragrance customers. This will be the first major fragrance house in Paris to unite both fine fragrances and toiletries together in one powerful unit. The new facility will be leased; the Company's existing facilities in Bois Colombes have been sold. Terms of the lease and sale were not disclosed.

“Fine fragrance is a cornerstone of IFF's business and we are committed to doing everything we can to meet the needs of our fine fragrance customers. This facility will help us continue to provide our customers with the high level of creativity, innovation, and customer service they have come to expect from IFF,” said Nicolas Mirzayantz, Vice President, Global Business Development Fine Fragrances and Toiletries. “Uniting and expanding fine fragrances and toiletries will ensure that IFF maximizes the creative synergies and consumer knowledge which exist between the two categories to the maximum benefit of our customers and their brands.”
