Annette Green Receives Perfumed Plume Award for Best Fragrance Book of 2019
It is a great pleasure to announce that “Spritzing To Success With The Woman Who Brought An Industry To Its Senses” by the legendary Annette Green is the recipient of the 2019 Perfumed Plume Awards Fragrance Book of the Year.
The award was presented by Jenny B. Fine, Executive Editor, Beauty WWD Beauty, Inc at the awards ceremony & celebration which took place Wednesday, April 10 at The Society of Illustrators, NYC.
“This award is presented at the discretion of the Perfumed Plume Consulting Committee. It was a unanimous decision that “Spritzing to Success” is the one book written in 2018 that deserved this special award not only because it was written by a truly passionate fragrance industry icon, but also because it shares so many wonderful moments in the industry’s glorious history,” state both Lyn Leigh & Mary Ellen Lapsansky, Co-Founders, Perfumed Plume, LLC.
“There’s no doubting Ms. Green’s illustrious career in the fragrance industry. She changed, shaped and developed not only the face of the business from the inside, but how the consumer perceived, bought and came to love perfume in all its forms,” the co-founders continued.
Jenny B. Fine said this: “Annette is an icon in the world of scent. Gaining the tust of all the giant and colorful (to say the least!) personalities and characters that inhabited the industry is a testament to her strength of character, purpose of mission and above all love of the fragrance world.”
“Spritzing to Success” reads like a who’s who, an encyclopedia, memoir and anthology all rolled into one narrative, not to mention Ms. Green’s witty, ‘tell it like it is’ style. Frank and outspoken at times, Ms. Green lifts the lid, doesn’t mince words and showers love and a deep sense of caring on all aspects of the fragrance world.
“I thank the Perfumed Plume Committee for this accolade,” said Ms. Green. “It is a joy to be honored along with such gifted writers, all of whom elevate the art and craft of fragrance through their perfume stories.”
As a special honor to Annette Green, the co-founders of Perfumed Plume arranged for celebrated illustrator, Clifford Faust, prominent member of the Society of Illustrators to sketch a commemorative illustration of Annette during the evening. The illustration was presented following Annette’s acceptance speech for the Perfumed Plume.
