This month, the trade organization announced the qualifiers for its prestigious annual awards and later this week the fragrance industry will gather for the finalists luncheon in New York City to celebrate the scents, the companies, the brands, and the writers in the running for the 2018 Fragrance Foundation Awards.

The winners of the 2018 awards will be announced in June at The Fragrance Foundation’s annual Awards Gala at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.

But at the April 6 Finalists Luncheon, the contenders in each category will be narrowed from 10 to 5 and the winners of several related awards—Editorial Excellence, Social Media Campaign, and 360-Degree Marketing—will be announced.

The Fragrance Foundation will celebrate select member companies at the luncheon event as well for Consumer Experiential Innovation and Give Back. And, Romee Strijd will receive The Fragrance Foundation’s Face of The Year award for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and IMG model.

The finalists

“The Fragrance Foundation is pleased to have an impressive array of compelling fragrances in Luxury, Prestige, Popular, Indie and Consumer Choice categories. Our member companies continue to inspire all of us to discover the artistry and passion of fragrance,”​ says Linda G. Levy, president of the Foundation, in a media release about this year’s finalists.

Listed here are the finalists in each category (as printed in the Foundation’s media release):
