Candy Perfume Boy And ODOU Magazine Win Jasmine Awards

The results of the Jasmine Awards are in and I am absolutely thrilled to announce that the winner of the Digital prize is Thomas Dunckley - aka the one and only Candy Perfume Boy - for his Guide To Violet. I was fortunate enough to be able to congratulate him in person at the ceremony, but I'd like to express those sentiments publicly too: I'm overjoyed for Thomas and I hope that this achievement encourages him to keep up the wonderful work on his blog.

I am equally excited to be able to say that the winner of the Literary Award (Magazine) is Neil Chapman for Perfume Haters, a piece which appeared in issue #1 of ODOU Magazine. Talk about a success story! Not only did Liam Moore's magazine pick up three Jasmine nominations for its debut instalment, but it also beat the likes of GQ, Psychologies and Elle to one of the most coveted prizes in perfume journalism. A thoroughly commendable accomplishment.

Warm congrats to all the winners!



  1. Dariush, thank you so much for your kind words and warm congratulations, it really does mean a lot!

    1. No need to thank me, CBP :-) I'm really pleased you won.

  2. Thank you so much again Dariush :) it was lovely to catch up yesterday. Still a bit overwhelmed this morning but it's a great feeling!

    1. Liam, it was great to be there to see Neil win.
