Persolaise Shortlisted For 5 2016/17 UK Jasmine Awards

I am excited to announce that when the nominees for this year's Fragrance Foundation UK Jasmine Awards were revealed a few hours ago, my name popped up 5 times. Actually, allow me to correct that. I'm not just excited: I'm over the jasmine-scented moon.

I've been shortlisted across 4 different categories: 'Soundbite - News Press' (for my Sunday Times Style article on 70s-inspired scents), 'Soundbite - Magazine' (for my Grazia piece on sexy perfumes), 'Independent - Literary' (for my Scented Letter article on the use of bases in perfumery) and 'Independent - Soundbite' (for two posts right here on one on Galop D'Hermès and the other on the best perfumes from Etat Libre D'Orange). Click on the links to find out more about the pieces.

Heartfelt congratulations to all the other nominees, especially those I'm fortunate to call friends. Many thanks to the judges and to Fragrance Foundation UK. To see all the nominees, please click here.

The winners will be announced on 15th March 2017.

    1. That's so kind, thank you! Honestly, it's wonderful just being nominated :-)

  2. Congratulations, fingers crossed for a win! I thoroughly enjoy your site & read it every Friday, & I am especially interested in your London Shopping Guide, which I check regularly for updates, particularly prior to my annual December visit.

    1. Carolyn, thank you so much for your good wishes and for reading my blog. An update to the guide is coming soon...

      I look forward very much to that, then. I am hoping to attend one of 4160 Tuesdays' events later in the year so may get the chance to explore your suggestions (well, the ones I'm not already aware of!) earlier than December.

    3. Ah, excellent. Any excuse to visit London!
