Nicknamed the “Oscars of the fragrance world,” the 2015 Fragrance Foundation Awards took place on June 17th at Lincoln Center in New York, hosted by Alec Baldwin and co-chaired by Anja Rubik and Linda Evangelista.
Our founder, Russell James, was asked to be a guest presenter alongside the face of Raw Spirit Fragrances, Behati Prinsloo, presenting the fragrance awards for “Men’s Popular” and “Women’s Popular”.
For both Russell and Behati, a particularly exciting moment was spending time with the Master Perfumer responsible for our fragrances, Harry Fremont, from our fragrance house partner, Firmenich.
We would like to congratulate Annie Buzantian, Master Perfumer from Firmenich, recipient of the 2015 Perfumer of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award.
