HOW TO SUBMIT
We made a video that answers some of the most commonly asked questions, and explains how our submissions work. Have a look!
We have three submission categories for the Art and Olfaction Awards, which reflect the varieties of practice in independent perfumery. Please click the category below to learn about qualifiers and rules for each category, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For brands that are owned or co-owned by the perfumer, who initiated and created the submission's formula in-house, released under the brand's name.
For brands that employed an external perfumer or fragrance house to create the submission's formula, which was then released under the brand's name.
Sadakichi Award (Experimental)
For creative or experimental practitioners who make unconventional use of scent, that takes it out of the domain of traditional perfumery.
In addition to our submission categories, we also present three discretionary awards - presented on a yearly basis to one person or perfume, per award. Please click the award type below to learn about the qualifiers for each category, and how we decide the winners.
Contribution to Scent Culture Award
This award is given on an annual basis to an outstanding person who makes significant contributions to public awareness of artisan, independent and experimental practices with scent on an international scale.
Aftel Award for Handmade Perfume
This award will be given on an annual basis to one outstanding small batch perfume that was 100% perfumer-created, in-house, with no use of outsourced compounding or expansion at any stage of the process.
Septimus Piesse Visionary Award
Inaugurated in 2019, this award is given on an as-needed basis to an outstanding person showing proof of exceptional vision with regards to how scent is used, developed, or imagined.
