The Candy Perfume Boy Wins a Jasmine Award!

The Jasmine Awards 2013

The Jasmine Awards 2013

Well, yesterday was an absolute of whirlwind of a day! After the joy of being shortlisted in the 2013 Jasmine Digital Award category for my Guide to Violet (in very esteemed company I must add) I am thrilled to announce that I was lucky enough to win the prize at yesterday’s ceremony held at BAFTA. I am of course, incredibly chuffed to have been bestowed with such an award and am very thankful to the Jasmine judges and the Fragrance Foundation for considering me – it truly is an honour.

I wasn’t the only one to pick up an award though and congratulations must go out to Liam Moore whose magazine ‘ODOU‘ received three nominations and was awarded the coveted Literary Award (Magazine) prize for Neil Chapman’s (he of The Black Narcissus) piece ‘Perfume Haters‘. A hearty well done, congratulations and hooray for both Neil, Liam and all of the other winners – a full list of which can be found at the Jasmine Awards website.

  1. Well done, Thomas – richly deserved! I was slightly worried the socks might have thrown the judges, but you may have played safe on the day? 😉 😉

  2. Thomas, I was so excited for you! I had a stressful day at work but your news put a massive smile on my face. It’s so good that your talent has been recognised in this way. And how cool the ceremony was held at BAFTA?!

    Well done to Liam too of course. What he’s achieved so quickly with ODOU is amazing.

    • Thank you, Tara! I’m sorry to hear that you had a stressful work day but I’m glad that we managed to put a smile on your face! It was amazing that the ceremony was at BAFTA – the whole thing was wonderful and a definite highlight of my life!

      I echo your sentiments about Liam and ODOU, it really is an amazing achievement!

    I just downloaded ODOU. There can never be too much good writing on perfume!

  5. I read about this yesterday. Congratulations, and very well deserved. As a violet lover, I was thrilled to read this post and found several new beloved scents. Ditto on the book!
