The 2021 Fragrance Foundation Awards were announced during a live streamed event on June 10, 2021. The online ceremony gathered an audience of more than 3,000 viewers globally, said the organization.

Fragrance Foundation Chairman of the Board Jerry Vittoria welcomed attendees, highlighting how the pandemic showed the world how important fragrance could be by bringing positivity and comfort at a time when it was so sorely needed. “Now more than ever the benefits of fragrances are recognized by all,” he said. “Seduction and romance are well and good, but there are so many emotions we can activate to capture a far greater number of consumers. The feelgood factor of fragrance is a huge opportunity for our entire industry.
