Good news

At the end of the year, Dr Zippel and Mr Nendel had a surprise in store. The entire staff was called together in two groups. Since no information had leaked out beforehand, all employees were curiously waiting for the announcement. The successful business year was acknowledged with a short speech. Then the company owners revealed the secret with visible joy: each employee received a generous amount, the so-called inflation compensation bonus. The lavish bonus came just in time for most of them just before Christmas. Thus, the staff starts the New Year highly motivated.

On the occasion of an event organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft der Parfümeure (DGP) at our company, our senior perfumer Dirk Linder was presented with an award (left picture). It is a token of appreciation for his many years of service to SEPAWA® e.V., including as an active member of the scientific advisory board. Furthermore, our chief perfumer, Fred Naraschkéwitz, received an award for a fragrance creation on the given theme "Teds & Riots" during the SEPAWA® Congress. Here, no paper but a bottle of champagne was presented (right picture, 2nd from left). We are delighted and congratulate them both!
