It is a great pleasure and delight to announce Pierre Dinand’s “Perfume Legends: Selection of 30 Drawings” will receive the 2018 ‘fragrance book’ award. It was published in 2017 to commemorate the opening of the perfume legends exhibition at Le Grand Musee du Parfum Paris in 2017.
In the words of long-time friend and collaborator on this book Mr. Michael Edwards: “This is my personal tribute as well. Pierre Dinand transformed perfume bottles into brand symbols. he demonstrated how to communicate the scent, the name and the image in a bottle. in so doing, he defined the profession of bottle designers.”
The award was presented as part of the celebration on April 11
at the Society of Illustrators
