Toby E. Boshak, Executive Director of the Princess Grace Foundation – USA, welcomed guests by drawing the parallel between the fragrance and the Foundation: “Princess Grace exuded elegance, glamour, and like the fragrances, which are themselves inspired by the exceptional, the creative, and limitless boundaries, the Princess Grace Foundation-USA supports exceptional emerging artists so that they can flourish and experience limitless horizons in their careers.” She then introduced Remy Deslandes, President of INCC, who spoke about the MONACO mens and women’s fragrances that were created by perfumer Calice Becker of Givaudan.
