ISIPCA (Institut supérieur international du parfum, de la cosmétique et de l'aromatique alimentaire) is a French school for post-graduate studies in perfume, cosmetics products and food flavor formulation, with an apprenticeship period in the industry.[1] It was founded in 1970 by Jean-Jacques Guerlain as ISIP (Institut supérieur international du parfum).[2] It became Groupe ISIPCA in 1984 when the CCIV (Chambre de commerce et d'industrie de Versailles-Val-d'Oise-Yvelines) backed up and sponsored the school with significant capital.
