I was very fortunate to be invited to the Mandarin Oriental in New York City of the announcement of the Finalists for this year’s Fragrance Foundation Awards. Of course I also was very interested in the Editorial Excellence In Fragrance Coverage-Online in which I had been named a Semifinalist for Olfactory Chemistry: Nitro Musks-From Boom to Musk.
It took a while to get down to my category and Christine Baranski read out the finalists and Colognoisseur was one of the finalists. I didn’t take home the big prize that went to my former Editor-in-Chief Michelyn Camen at CaFleureBon and writer The Silver Fox for “Smoky Eyes and Smoky Perfumes: The Allure of Scents That Smolder”.
It was a great event and I want to thank The Fragrance Foundation for the invitation to attend and Rhona Stokols of Symrise for hosting me at their table.
