Ninety-one years after its release, Chanel No. 5 remains one of the most popular fragrances in the world. During its 40th annual ceremony, the Fifi Awards will honor the creator of that fragrance and many others, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel and induct her into the Fifi Hall of Fame.
"Chanel fragrances have reached near mythical status thanks to the vision of Coco Chanel, her enduring commitment to in-house master perfumery and an uncompromising commitment to luxury and quality," said Jill Belasco, chair of The Fragrance Foundation, which presents the FiFi Awards. "To this day, men and women everywhere delight in wearing fragrances marked by the entwined double C’s of Chanel."
