2012 FiFi Fragrance Awards

Way back when, I disclosed my addiction to perfumes/fragrances (here). I think that in all honesty I can say that for me, I can never have too many. So I was very interested in seeing if any of the new additions to my collection made the cut for The FiFi® Awards-considered the "Oscars" of the fragrance industry. This prestigious, iconic New York event showcases and honors the very best the fragrance world has to offer. Competing to win a "Fragrance of the Year Award" are some of the big, the bold, instantly recognizable fragrance names, celebrity creations and collaborations as well as smaller, niche innovators. Over 800 guests attended and twenty-seven beautiful crystal FiFi ® awards were presented (including one dedicated to one of the biggest fashion icons ever... Coco Chanel).

The ceremony for the 2012 FiFi Fragrance Awards to celebrate and honor the art, passion and personalities of the fragrance world, was held on May 22nd, 2012 in New York City and hosted by Golden Globe and Emmy winning actress and comedian Jane Lynch. Celebrities such as the legendary Chaka Khan, Nicole Richie, and Martha Stewart served as presenters.
