WHO CAN SUBMIT?
We accept submissions from independent and artisan perfumers, and experimental practitioners with scent from all countries. Brands must be independently owned, or owned by a parent company with no more than four fine fragrance holdings in its brand portfolio.
For the 5th annual awards, we accept perfumes first released to market between January 1 and December 31, 2017.
We will accept submissions in three categories: Independent, artisan and experimental. Please take a moment to review how we define these categories.
- INDEPENDENT AWARD: This is for perfume brands that employ an external perfumer or fragrance house to initiate and create their blends, which are then released under the brand's name. Read the qualifiers here.
- ARTISAN AWARD: This is for perfume brands that are owned or co-owned by the brand's primary perfumer, who initiates and creates the perfume formulations in-house, then released under the brand's name. Read the qualifiers here.
- SADAKICHI AWARD FOR EXPERIMENTAL WORK WITH SCENT: This is for experimental practitioners who make unconventional or non-traditional use of scent that takes it out of the domain of traditional perfumery. Read the qualifiers here.
