Last week at New York City’s Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, The Fragrance Foundation held its annual awards event. Trophies were given to nearly 20 fragrances across luxury, prestige, and mass. The event also honored 2018 Hall of Fame inductee Ann Gottlieb as well as other life-long perfume industry insiders.

Actor and singer Jane Krakowski hosted the 2018 event. And new-this-year Foundation president Linda G. Levy spoke on several occasions throughout the evening as well. “Tonight’s winners, finalists and honorees represent the very best of the fragrance industry,”​ she told the crowd. “They bring to life the artistry and passion that makes fragrance so transformative and inspiring.”

Three honorees

The Fragrance Foundation named Ann Gottlieb its 2018 Hall of Fame honoree. “To receive this award recognizing my contributions to the world of fragrance is a validation of my work and is absolutely thrilling. I’m truly honored and poised to continue for the next 50 years!” ​she said.

Frédéric Malle received the Foundation’s Game Changer Award. “This recognition is like an Oscar for your career, so it’s humbling,” ​said Malle. “Since my mother and her father both worked in the industry, this award is very moving for me. It’s like an accolade from someone very close to me, recognizing that I maybe contributed something too.”

And, the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Perfumer Award went to Firmenich Master Perfumer Olivier Cresp. “To start from scratch and have maybe the highest award that one can receive is really incredible,”​ said Cresp. “It’s something I never expected and I’m very honored.”
