Sixth Annual Experimental Art and Olfaction Awards

  • Amsterdam Netherlands (map)

Annual celebration of all things aromatic, indie, artisan and experimental returns with sixth edition of the Art and Olfaction Awards. Taking place in Amsterdam’s historic Oude Kerk, the evening will be a gathering of the indie perfume glitterati from all over the world. Come laugh along with the winners’ joy, and help us cover sizable event expenses by purchasing a ticket for a seat (and a spot at the after-party). These coveted few seats will go very soon.

Time: 7:00pm – 10:00pm

Donation (Public Seat): $35.00 per person

Notes: Public attendance is highly limited.

The Art and Olfaction Awards celebrate creativity, innovation and excellence in global independent and artisan perfumery. They accomplish this through an annual award in three categories: Artisan Perfume, Independent Perfume and Experimental Work with Scent, as well as our discretionary Contribution to Scent Culture Award, and the Aftel Award for Handmade Perfume.

Awarded to just five projects and two people a year, the Art and Olfaction Awards present a highly competitive and highly selective award that is designed to raise interest and awareness for active independent and artisan perfumers from all countries. Their hope is that by shining a spotlight on independent and artisan perfumery’s most outstanding creators, we-  in turn – will help generate support for independent perfumery, as a whole.

Submissions to the awards are open to the public, and are judged blindly by an international panel, in two phases. The preliminary judges decide the shortlisted perfumes in the artisan and independent category, and the finalist judges decide the winners. A separate panel of curators and artists decide both the shortlisted projects and the winners in the Sadakichi Award for Experimental Work with Scent
