The Candy Perfume Boy Shortlisted for Three Jasmine Awards

The Jasmine Awards 2016
The Jasmine Awards 2016

The shortlist for the Jasmine Awards 2016 is out and I am very pleased to announce that The Candy Perfume Boy has been nominated for four articles across three categories this year for work on this blog and When I first started this blog in 2011, I never imagined that anyone would read it, let alone the fact that it would go on to be nominated for and win awards. Five years on and I’m completely stunned to have been nominated for the Jasmine Awards (the awards offered by the Fragrance Foundation to celebrate excellent in fragrance journalism) for the third year in a row. What’s more, it’s absolutely wonderful to see such a huge collection of talent amongst the shortlist, with an array of fabulous writers (many of whom I’m lucky enough to call my friends) receiving nominations. It’s enough to make this boy’s heart burst.

I must say a massive congratulations to all who have been nominated this year, especially Chelsea Edmunds and Ceryn Lawless at Escentual, who have both been shortlisted for their amazing work in the Rising Star category. Go Team Escentual!
