The jury president Bouix and esteemed Jean Louis Mathiez, owner of Cinqpats, experts in innovative cosmetic packaging, presided over the ceremony at the Circular Economy Stage during the afternoon session of the first day of the fair.
All the finalist submissions were showcased in a gallery dedicated to the Innovation Awards at Paris Packaging Week, known as the birthplace of packaging innovation, with over 10,000 expected visitors in the world’s capital of luxury and beauty, specifically at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
Naïma Havard, Director of Packaging Development Projects at LVMH Fragrance Brands, received a certificate for ‘Flower By Kenzo Ikebana Eau de Parfum’ and stated, “We are very happy and honored to have received a certificate for this project, which was very difficult, as it integrates the innovation of a glass bell.
