|The recipient of the 2019 Perfumed Plume Awards Fragrance Book of
the Year is “Spritzing to Success…With the Woman Who Brought an
Industry to Its Senses” by the legendary Annette Green.
|The award was presented by Jenny B. Fine, Executive Editor,
Beauty WWD Beauty, Inc at the awards ceremony & celebration taking
place Wednesday, April 10 at The Society of Illustrators, NYC.
“This award is presented at the discretion of the Perfumed Plume Consulting Committee. It was a unanimous decision that “Spritzing to Success” is the one book written in 2018 that deserved this special award not only because it was written by a truly passionate fragrance industry icon, but
also because it shares so many wonderful moments in the industry’s
glorious history,” state both Lyn Leigh & Mary Ellen Lapsansky, Co-Founders, Perfumed Plume, LLC. There’s no doubting Ms. Green’s illustrious
career in the fragrance industry.
She changed, shaped and developed not only the face of the business from the inside, but how the consumer
perceived, bought and came to love perfume in all its forms. Jenny B. Fine said this: “Annette is an icon in the world of scent. Gaining the trust of all the giant and colorful (to say the least!) personalities and characters that
inhabited the industry is a testament to her strength of character,
purpose of mission and above all love of the fragrance world.” “Spritzing to Success” reads like a who’s who, an encyclopedia, memoir and
anthology all rolled into one narrative, not to mention Ms. Green’s witty,
‘tell it like it is’ style. Frank and outspoken at times, Ms. Green lifts the lid, doesn’t mince words and showers love and a deep sense of caring on all aspects of the fragrance world. “I thank the Perfumed Plume Committee
for this accolade,” said Ms. Green. “It is a joy to be honored along with
such gifted writers, all of whom elevate the art and craft of fragrance
through their perfume stories.”
