We are grateful to the community of writers, perfume bloggers and editors for being so supportive of The Art and Olfaction Awards. Please read on for some press highlights.
"Friday’s summit [and awards] was part of [the IAO's] mission to build mutual support and a sense of community for this broad ranging group of creatives who may work at the margins of the fragrance industry, deep within it, or completely outside of it."

"In the end, what I have seen in Berlin is a reunion of some of the most outstanding and passionate people working in the niche fragrance industry. The inclusion of the Experimental Scent Summit made all the difference and created a statement, a letter of intention from the organization, and it might become even more important that the award itself. It was an advanced attitude of transmitting knowledge and debating questions."

"Last Friday, at the second annual Art and Olfaction Awards, in Los Angeles, four of the evening’s five Golden Pears went to traditional fragrances. Vegetal aromas fared particularly well. [...] The real excitement, however, lay in the Sadakichi Award for Experimental Use of Scent, which was new to the event this year."
