      It is with great jubilation and honor that I am able to bring you coverage of the US FiFi 2011 as New York Correspondent for Basenotes. I'd like to thank everyone who followed me on Twitter on Wednesday night as I stumbled through the award ceremony held at Damrosch Park in Lincoln Center. Most of all, I'd like to thank Grant Osborne whose visionary insight and editorial excellence I have always admired, for giving me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend this prestigious event to honor the greatest in the industry. I enjoyed getting the inside glimpse into the glamorous, provocative and somewhat off-the-beaten-path orbis terrarum of Fragrance Art.
