We’ve been writing about “scenterpreneur” Sue Phillips – founding president of Scenterprises Ltd. and creator of the fragrances Tiffany for Men, Society by Burberry and Burberry for Men, among others – since the early days of WAG, encountering her at pop-ups at places like Greenwich Polo Club. Recently, the vivacious South African native wrote us with some great news:
“There are so many blessings for which I am grateful and which I am happy to share with you.
“I have just celebrated my 44th anniversary in America. I arrived in this country with the dream of becoming a singer and actor and the book I was reading on the flight over from South Africa was “Fire & Ice”- the story about Revlon and the cosmetics industry. Was it prophetic? Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would become a fragrance expert and hone my skills at Elizabeth Arden, Lancôme and develop fragrances for iconic brands such as Tiffany, Burberry, Avon and so many others.
“I am honored to share that I am a ‘cover girl’ and the featured cover story in T.I.P. Magazine, Top Industry Professionals by IAOTP (International Association of Top Professionals) as “Sue Phillips Scentrepreneur — Top Fragrance & Marketing Expert of the Year.”
“In addition, I am thrilled to have become a published author, and my first book ‘The Power of Perfume – How to Choose it, Wear it & Enjoy it,” is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.”
On Monday, May 24, from 4 to 6 p.m., Phillips will be signing copies of her book outside Vanessa Noel Boutique, 158 E. 64th St. in Manhattan. RSVP by calling or texting 917-449-1134 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, Phillips is working with those who’ve lost their sense of smell due to Covid to help them regain it.
