President Bill Clinton remained mum on his wife’s presidential ambitions, but elicited audible gasps from the 800-plus attendees at the inaugural Fragrance Foundation Talks when he admitted he no longer wears cologne. But the former president still wowed the crowd, speaking for more than 40 minutes on topics as diverse as climate change, entrepreneurialism and the rise of non-government organizations. Also on the roster was Caryl Stern, president and chief executive officer of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, Stefan Sagmeister, creative director and cofounder of Sagmeister & Walsh, and Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity and innovation in both business and education.
