The Candy Perfume Boy Shortlisted for Four Jasmine Awards

The Jasmine Awards 2015
The Jasmine Awards 2015

The Jasmine Awards shortlist is out and I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I have been shortlisted in not one, not two, but four categories, with a total of five articles from this blog, Escentual and ODOU magazine making their way into the nominations! To say that I’m over the moon is a massive and dramatic understatement, and it truly is an honour to see recognition for my writing, especially amongst so many of my very talented peers.

Hosted by The Fragrance Foundation, the Jasmine Awards “recognise and reward the talents of journalists and visualisers whose difficult task it is to translate the complex art of perfumery into words and pictures”, awarding ten prizes across a variety of fragrant mediums, including digital and print. The awards, set to be held at BAFTA on 18 March 2015, are a celebration of fragrance journalists, their excellent writing and passion for the world of olfaction.

Click below the jump to see which categories I’ve been shortlisted in. A full list of all the categories can be found here. I’d like to say a massive and heartfelt congratulations to all who are nominated – I am in exceptional Company and it’s truly wonderful to see so many talented writers and more importantly, friends receiving the hard earned recognition that they well and truly deserve.
