                                                                 THE FRAGRANCE FOUNDATION

                                                    The Highlight of the Fragrance Industry


  If you did not get an invitation to attend the 87th Academy Awards, don't be upset...I did not get an invitation. Did you know that the fragrance industry have their own version of the OSCARS but it is called the FiFi Awards. Every year The Fragrance Foundation celebrate the global fragrance industry with outstanding creative achievements in the world of perfumery. Doesn't this sound just like the Academy Awards? The crowning achievement is celebrated with a lavish setting at a posh location, usually The Lincoln Center in New York. It is surrounded by the Who's Who of the perfume industry and by this I mean companies such as Coty, Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Ralph Lauren and Bloomingdale's just to name a few. The Who's Who of the perfume industry are surrounded by celebrities such as Halle Berry, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Ben Affleck and so many more.

 This is the day to shine but for the perfume industry that is more than 36.6 billion dollars by 2018. Globally its is worth 28.6 billion dollars. That is a lot of fragrance wafting around. If you are into celebrity scents, that is worth a whopping 30 billion dollars. 

So, that is why The Fragrance Foundation is such a big deal in the perfume industry. The Fragrance Foundation was established in 1949 and during the the 1940's only three fragrances were launched.  One fragrance for women and two fragrances for men.  Did you know in 2014 there were 1,600 fragrances launched!

No wonder I stay so busy trying to review new launches!                          
 
The similarities to The Academy Awards in terms of categories for The Fragrance Foundation Awards are quite prestigious. Here are the categories for nominations in a fragrance category. 

FiFi Award Trophy

Fragrance of the Year
Fragrance Hall of Fame
Packaging of the Year
Media Campaign of the Year
Interior Scents Collection of the Year
Bath & Body Line of the Year
Hall of Fame
Fragrance Celebrity of the Year
Lifetime Achievement, Perfumer
Editorial Excellence in Fragrance Coverage *
Indie Award
Perfume Extraordinaire

In 2011, the Indie category was just established for niche, artisan and natural perfumers. The indie category of perfumers finally got noticed for their achievements in perfumery and the first perfumer to be recognized and nominated was Mandy Aftel, perfumer and owner of Aftelier Perfumes with three historic nominations (Candide, Honey Blossom and Lumiere). Although Mandy Aftel did not take home the crowning FiFi Award it was a tremendous landmark for indie category.  Six Scents Series Three was the winner. 

If you look at the list of categories there is an asterisk next to Editorial Excellence in Fragrance Coverage. That category is for people like myself and editors of magazines online as well as articles published in a magazine such as Vogue, Elle, W Magazine, Cosmopolitan and the like.

This is a very competitive and tight race for the best. It basically shows the amount of passion written by the writer and this is what needs to be continued in the ever-changing fragrance industry. 

This would be a dream come true to win a FiFi Award in this category. I am keeping my fingers crossed with lots of prayer!

Guess what? You can attend The Fragrance Foundation Awards! You do not have to wait to receive an invitation in the mail. You can simply go to www.fragrance.org.

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche,natural, artisan and designer perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
