It was standing room only at the 2nd Perfumed Plume Awards as six winners whose prolific skills in creative fragrance journalism were recognized and rewarded their prize of $1,000.00 and an elegant Cross pen.

The lively awards party, held at one of New York’s hidden art gems, the Society of Illustrators, was buzzing with anticipation and conversation flowing between guests: iconoclasts, cross-generational fragrance innovators, game-changers, free spirits, influencers, industry notables and luminaries from the world of media, fragrance, art and design.

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.

Westley Morris, Senior Vice president- Fine Fragrance at MANE commented “as the Founding Sponsor, we couldn’t be happier to see the Perfumed Plume Awards gain recognition as a ‘must win’ award. In only its 2nd year, they have made a huge impact.”

“We were enthused to receive a substantial increase in submissions this year from the global community, which means that the Perfumed Plume Awards is building momentum and becoming recognized as an annual, iconic symbol of media excellence. And this is what we set out to do!”   Said Mary Ellen Lapsansky

Lyn Leigh noted “ we exist to honor the writers and artists across the media spectrum that have so brilliantly brought to the page the story of fragrance in all its magic and mystery”.
