Highlights from the 2008 Perfumers’ Choice Awards

The American Society of Perfumers recently honored the best and brightest in fragrance at New York’s Tribeca Rooftop. The event celebrated the power of fragrance in everything from luxury perfumes to challenge bases.

During the ceremony, Perfumer & Flavorist magazine (an Allured Business Media publication and GCI magazine's sister magazine) editor Jeb Gleason-Allured was officially inducted as an honorary member of the society. In his acceptance, Gleason-Allured thanked the organization, and noted his publication’s and family’s long dedication to the fragrance and beauty industries. Founding publisher Stanley Allured, Gleason-Allured’s grandfather, was previously inducted as an honorary member.
