During the presentation, Miranda Gordon, Vice President, Fine Fragrance Marketing & Evaluation, MANE remarked that, “The Perfumed Plume Awards shines a spotlight on gifted writers whose brilliant story-telling abilities give the consumer a newfound appreciation of fragrance in all its many facets. MANE applauds the tremendous efforts and passion of the Perfumed Plume.”

  A special moment of the evening was the presentation to the legendary Annette Green for her book “Spritzing to Success.” Jenny B. Fine, Executive Editor, Beauty WWD Beauty Inc., said of Ms. Green, “There’s no doubting Annette’s illustrious career in the fragrance industry. She changed, shaped and developed not only the face of the business from the inside, but also how the consumer perceived, bought and came to love perfume in all its forms.”
