The finalists for the 2019 Perfumed Plume Awards have been announced.

The Perfumed Plume Awards recognize excellence in fragrance journalism, celebrating “stories that give the reader an inside view of the cultural, historical and personal approaches to fragrance design and what it takes to create an evocative scent.”

Editorial finalists are judged on quality of content, originality, creativity, accuracy and depth of information. The Visualization of Perfume Stories—Print and Digital finalists are judged on design concept and how that design relates to the content.
