        Many of mine made the list surprisingly. Looking forward to seeing the winners.

        Do we get to vote from the finalists for the winners?

        How are the winners determined?

        Just two categories had my picks in them: Best New Niche Fragrance and Best New House. In those two categories there are so many stellar choices! My personal favorites are Papillon, Bogue, and Masque Milano. Great new houses, such exciting fragrance releases.

        Yay, seven categories have my picks in them! :) Some worthy candidates for the Hall of Fame in particular. Looking forward to seeing the winners!

        Winners are all determined by which ones had the most votes, which is already counted.

        Five of my nominees made the list. I hope they win.

        Cuir d'Ange is in the women's category but Cuir Cannage in the men's. Perhaps it's time for a unisex category too?

        @saminlondon - the categories are technically for "Best fragrances for Men" and "Best fragrances for Women", so it's about the gender of the recipient, rather than the fragrance.

        I've only tried a few on this list (angel, Jacky). Most are new to me, though I've heard of them before (Fracas, most of the Tom Ford ones....) Thank you for curating my next shopping list, basenotes!

        The only categories where my nomination didn't make it were best new men and women's and packaging wow! I don't know if they'll all win, but I'm happy my favorites are enjoying such relative popularity. Good luck to them!

        Kinda reopening this one since the article said that the winners would be announced in April, it's already half way though May and I'm yet to find the winners. So my question is, has the winners been announced, if so where can I see them?

        Edit: Also there if I remember correctly there was going to be a raffle of some sort for those who voted?

      • Grant | 18th May 2015 23:25

        I'm a bit behind. Should be at end of the week & raffle too
