The Art and Olfaction Awards are designed to raise interest and awareness for independent perfumers, artisan perfumers, and experimental practitioners with scent on an international scale. With only nine prestigious Golden Pear awards handed out a year, The Art and Olfaction Awards provide a prestigious marker for excellence in independent, artisan and experimental perfumery. By shining a spotlight on perfumery’s most outstanding creators, we hope to help generate support for independent practices in perfumery as a whole.
The Art and Olfaction Awards and the Golden Pears™ are a program of The Institute for Art and Olfaction, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Los Angeles, USA. Learn more about us here.
