Cosmetics & Personal Care Events

The Future of Packaging

Creezy Courtoy and myself will be moderating a round table on the future of packaging at the PCD (Packaging of Perfume Cosmetics and Design) event in Paris on the 30th of January.

The round table will be from 11.30 – 12.30 and possibility to meet the speakers from 12.30 to 12.45.


The world uses billions of items of packaging every day. Humans have produced 9.1bn tonnes of plastic since 1950 and most of it is sitting in the environment.

The cosmetics industry is not the worst industry but needs to act rapidly to show alternatives that reduce environmental impact, and reflect brand values, so that it cannot be considered a problem industry.

Sustainability is no longer an option, it’s an obligation.

Creezy Courtoy, Founder and Chair of IPF (International Perfume Foundation) will introduce The New Luxury Code and will lead a discussion asking:

  • What are the solutions for humans and the environment?
  • What will the packaging of tomorrow be?

  • Thomas Joly, Director France UPG


Founded by Creezy Courtoy in 1995, The International Perfume Foundation (IPF) is the first organization to preserve the heritage of perfume while advocating for its beautiful future.

Pierre Dinand inspired generations and is the most prolific designer with the creation of more than 1,000 perfume bottles since 1959 and amongst them the most beautiful contemporary art packaging. Everyone remember Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium, Dior’s Eau Sauvage, Calvin Klein’s Eternity, Calvin Klein’s Obsession, Paco Rabanne’s Calandre…
