Canadian fragrance awards echo UK's Fifi choices
Tuesday 04 May 2010
Judging from the Canadian Fragrance Awards winners, there are quite a few similarities in Canadian and British consumer choices when it comes to perfume, with Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, and Diesel all proving popular in both countries.
Ford, who also just launched his first lipstick range, bagged the prize for the Best Luxe Launch with his Grey Vetiver fragrance, while Jacobs was again successful with Lola (the follow-up to his equally popular Daisy), and Diesel continued its lucky streak with Only the Brave.
The latter had also been honored at France's fragrance awards last month, which marked the only significant correspondence between French and British choices.
Both the UK's Fifi Awards and the Canadian Fragrance Awards could serve as indicators for the upcoming Fifi Awards in the US on June 10, considered the biggest event in the industry.
