THE FRAGRANCE FOUNDATION UK: 23ème édition des FIFI Awards

“A brilliant evening”, “Fantastic to see the fragrance industry celebrated so well” and

“Some incredible winners at the best Awards so far!”, were just a few of the comments

received from last night’s Fragrance Foundation UK Awards Gala Dinner.

Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the fragrance industry, the 23rd annual Fragrance Foundation

Awards 2015 took place at one of London’s most popular venues – The Brewery on

Chiswell Street.

The glitzy and glamorous event was attended by over 500 industry guests including a

host of celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Richard E. Grant, Baroness Brady & Nick Ede.

The evening started with a Champagne Reception held in the King George III room with

entertainment from Tom Barnes Music, where guests mingled before being ushered to the

Porter Tun room for a sumptuous Dinner.

TV news presenter Natasha Kaplinsky compèred the evening’s ceremony for the third

year, held in support of the industry’s charity Look Good Feel Better, and guests were

entertained by the fabulous Rebecca Ferguson, who performed for us all to enjoy.

The welcoming presentation was given by The Fragrance Foundation UK’s Chairman,

Annalise Fard, who commented on what a great year The Fragrance Foundation have

had. Linda Key, The Fragrance Foundation’s CEO, gave an update on the achievements of

The Fragrance Foundation and its aims for the future.
