Our friends at the Institute of Art and Olfaction are up to their old tricks again, busily forging new paths for talented young fragrance makers. In April 2014, they will recognise the best independent and artisan perfume makers in an unprecedented event called the Art and Olfaction Awards. Until now, unlike in the worlds of fashion, art, jewellery, hairdressing and probably any other creative pursuit you can imagine, there hasn't been an avenue of recognition for young perfume designers. This is an awesome and necessary initiative and we're really excited about speaking to the new bright, young stars of the perfume world early next year.
IAO are accepting entries from around the world and all the entry details are on their site.
