We are delighted to welcome entrants and open submissions to the fifth year of the PERFUMED PLUME AWARDS FOR FRAGRANCE JOURNALISM. On this 5th anniversary, we would also like to pay tribute to ALL the journalists, writers, bloggers, webzine editors who have published and entered their wonderful, entertaining, informative, enlightening perfume stories. During this time we have received many stories not only from the mainstream beauty media but also, surprisingly, from many unrelated publications.
Mary Ellen Lapsansky, Co-Founder, Perfumed Plume, LLC : “Many kudos to the creative fragrance writers whose dedication to this art form continues to elevate our spirits, open our minds and take us on fantastic scent journeys.”
“We applaud 4 years of winners,” comments Lyn Leigh, Co-Founder, Perfumed Plume, LLC “and can’t wait to find out who will win in 2020.”
Michael Edwards captivated the audience as he presented his splendidly updated “Perfume Legends II”
followed by a lively interview with Givaudan’s Senior Perfumer, Rodrigo Flores-Roux. Michael’s encyclopedic
knowledge, first-hand interviews and deep research into the 52 legendary fragrances in this coffee-table
opus is unparalleled in the industry. Hosted by Perfumed Plume’s Mary Ellen Lapsansky and Lyn Leigh,
“What Makes A Perfume Legend?” was attended by Miranda Gordon and Birgit Benayoun of MANE,
Givaudan’s Felix Mayr-Harting and Kate Greene, Lauder’s Helen Murphy plus executives from Symrise,
IFF, Verescence, Chemia’s Westly Morris and many other industry personalities.
For the past four years perfumed plume has been dedicated to encouraging
