New York, NY April 11, 2019. The Perfumed Plume Awards™ celebrated the 2019 winners at the 4th celebration attended by a lively guest-list of writers, journalists, entrepreneurs, influencers and industry notables from the world of fragrance, media, art and design.
The fun and festive party took place at the Society of Illustrators, a New York gem, where the prolific skills of each winner in creative fragrance journalism were recognized and greeted with warm applause and congratulations by all who attended. Both Lyn Leigh and Mary Ellen Lapsansky agree that it is a highlight of the year and a great joy to honor such gifted writers, all of whom elevate the art and craft of fragrance through their perfume stories. Winners were each presented with a signature Tiffany pen.
The awards were established in 2015 by Mary Ellen Lapsansky and Lyn Leigh, both experienced fragrance and cosmetic executives, to honor and recognize fragrance stories and the many talented writers and visualists who give the reader an inside view of the cultural, historical, scientific and personal approaches to fragrance design and what it takes to create an evocative scent.
During the presentation, Miranda Gordon, Vice President, Fine Fragrance Marketing & Evaluation, MANE remarked that, “The Perfumed Plume Awards shines a spotlight on gifted writers whose brilliant story-telling abilities give the consumer a newfound appreciation of fragrance in all its many facets. MANE applauds the tremendous efforts and passion of the Perfumed Plume.”
A special moment of the evening was the presentation to the legendary Annette Green for her book “Spritzing to Success.” Jenny B. Fine, Executive Editor, Beauty WWD Beauty Inc., said of Ms. Green, “There’s no doubting Annette’s illustrious career in the fragrance industry. She changed, shaped and developed not only the face of the business from the inside, but also how the consumer perceived, bought and came to love perfume in all its forms.”
