SUPPORT THE IAO
2nd annual Art and Olfaction AWARDS – The Institute for Art and Olfaction

The Art and Olfaction Awards celebrates creativity, innovation and excellence in global independent and artisan perfumery.

We accomplish this through an annual juried award, which launched with our first awards ceremony in Los Angeles in April, 2014. In 2015, we expand upon our existing offering by adding The Art and Olfaction Sadakichi Award, created to highlight scent work being done in the context of other creative practices. This experimental award joins our artisan and independent awards to create a broad snapshot of the diversity, excellence and potential in the field.

Awarded to just five perfumers a year, The Art and Olfaction Award is a highly competitive and highly selective award, designed to raise interest and awareness for active independent, artisan and experimental perfumers from all countries. Our hope is that by shining a spotlight on perfumery’s most outstanding creators, we –  in turn – will help generate support for independent perfumery, as a whole.
