SUBMISSION CATEGORIES

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 hello@artandolfaction.com for more information. 

Artisan Category

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.

Independent Category

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.
