Quintis Sandalwood and the American Society of Perfumers invited perfumers to create a fragrance that made Indian sandalwood (S.album) the hero.
Perfumers from across the globe tested their creativity and craft, inspired by our muse, Indian sandalwood (S.album). Fragrance submissions were judged under rigorous conditions by a panel of professional perfumers from the American Society of Perfumers on blotter and skin.
The Global Winner and an Emerging Talent will be named at the World Perfumery Congress in July 2022, winning prizes of $10,000 and $2,000 respectively.
Fragrance submissions were blindly assessed by an independent panel of fragrance professionals with global experience spanning New York, Paris and Geneva working for companies including Givaudan, Firmenich, IFF, Symrise, Takasago and Mane to create fragrances for iconic brands like Estée Lauder, Ralph Lauren, Coty, DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger and Fabergé.
After several rounds of blind judging, assessing the fragrances on blotter and skin, the top 10 Finalists were selected. Read more about the art of judging perfumery here.
The competition will culminate in the Global Winner and Emerging Talent winner being named at the World Perfumery Congress in Miami on 1 July 2022.
