I had some incredible news yesterday. I have been shortlisted for a prestigious Jasmine Award. Often regarded as the Oscars of perfume writers, to say I was bowled, over, chuffed and did a full West End Musical number in my kitchen would be an understatement.
The Jasmine Awards are run by the Fragrance Foundation UK and this year’s sponsors are Dior, Guerlain, Penhaligon’s, Lalique and Moyses Stevens. The reception is on Wednesday 15th March in London and if ever a woman needed a beauty salon, it’s me right now.
The category I have been shortlisted in is Best Digital Fragrance Experience for my review of Aftelier Perfumes Memento Mori by Mandy Aftel.
Win or lose, just being shortlisted is an enormous thrill and I would like to thank you all for giving me the confidence to keep going when confidence has been hard to find. It can be lonely beng the only perfume blogger in the village, but every like and site vist and retweet and comment and giveaway entry and social media follow has really helped.
