Jane Lynch Hosted the 2012 FiFi Fragrance Awards

Posted: May 23, 2012

Look for expanded coverage in the August issue of P&F Magazine.

The Oscars of the fragrance world started with a bang on Monday, when Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Lynch (Glee) opened the FiFi Fragrance Awards by saying, "I'm honored to be here tonight to serve as your host. Selecting me as host makes perfect sense, because when you think of a sexy, delicate and floral fragrance, you think, 'Jane Lynch.'" 

Lynch was followed by several other celebrity presenters, including Carol Alt, Sam Champion, Tyson Chandler, Philippe Cousteau, Mariska Hargitay, Chaka Khan, Josh Groban, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin Navayne, Nicole Richie, Jessica Stam and Martha Stewart, who presented crystal FiFi Award statuettes to the following winners:
