And the winners of the FiFis are...

The awards results from perfume's Big Night Out... Hot off the press from last night's highlight of the fragrance calendar, the FiFis, here are the perfumes which the industry (and the public) loved most, in the past year.

Some were voted on by magazine and newspaper readers, some by the movers and shakers in the industry - but we thought you'd be interested to know who won what.  Jo got to present the Perfume Extraordinaire Award, which we sort of think is most meaningful of all:  it's voted on by fragrance writers who've won The Jasmine Awards - the most prestigious literary award for perfume-writing, in the world - and all entries are smelled blind over a period of two weeks.  We know how easy it is to be swayed by marketing and advertising - so the win for Givaudan (the perfume house responsible for creating Tom Ford Noir) is quite something.  To read more about any of the fragrant winners, meanwhile, click on their name.

The overall prize for the Ultimate Launch went to Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire - and we're really not surprised;  the whole package (smell, visuals, films) is enchanting.  (See the video here.)
