Los Angeles! We will be hosting an informal event where you can experience the finalists and winners. Join us at the Institute for Art and Olfaction on July 29 to raise a glass to these exceptional projects and perfumes.
We really enjoyed the 8th Art and Olfaction Awards, and we have the photos to show for it! Thanks to Patricia Laylle for her stellar work.
A big thanks to our partners, who have supported the immense task of producing the Art and Olfaction Awards - many of them since the very first year. Please visit their websites and show them some support.
We would also like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to the entire team at World Perfumery Congress, who have generously supported the 2022 Art and Olfaction Awards with a venue and extensive production assistance.
We'd also like to thank Bart Scmhidt at Brands With Purpose for his exceptional support.
The judging for the 8th awards took place from December 2021 to March 2022, in person at the IAO in the preliminary round, and remotely in the finalist round. The judging was blind in the artisan and independent categories, as well as in the Aftel Award for Handmade Perfume. Submissions were tracked by a number, and accompanied only by an anonymized creative brief.
