    Honestly, I can't pick most of these. I have some faves in each category, but there are too many I'm not familiar with. But there are a lot of good entries - I'll say that!

    My votes:

    Women: Fate Woman
    Men: Black
    Flanker: Bel Ami Vetiver
    Niche: Dries van Noten
    Packaging: Ashoka
    Celebrity: No Idea
    Online: Luckyscent
    Bricks & Mortar: Scent Bar
    Perfumer: Thierry Wasser
    House: The Jury Is Out - altho the Guerlain 're-make' collection is pretty amazing even if you can only smell the stuff at Champs Elysée.
    Women HOF: Mitsouko (particularly given it won an award for best 'salvage job' reformulation)
    Men HOF: Habit Rouge
