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 Persolaise.com: 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.
