Fragrance Foundation Awards: Which Came Out Smelling Like a Rose?

Clap along if you feel like the winningest perfumes deserved the accolades

While celebrity "let's pat ourselves on our collective backs" award season is officially over and the crème de la crème are fête-ing it up in Cannes, those in the nose gathered Monday evening at New York City's Lincoln Center for the 39th annual Fragrance Foundation Awards ceremony.

Hosted by Dana Carvey with fashion royal Carrine Roitfeld and model Coco Rochas as sidekicks (sorry, co-chairs), the awards paid tribute to the finest fragrances in the biz.

"The Fragrance Foundation Awards is the most important night for the beauty industry and we are in awe of this year's creative achievements and accomplishments," president of the foundation Elizabeth Musmanno boasted. "We congratulate all the winners and finalists who continue to master the art of fragrance."

Awards, running the gamut from Most Popular to Most Prestige with a smattering of Packaging and Consumer's Choice thrown in for good measure, were doled out to various notables in the olfactory world, with Clinique's 17 year-old "Happy" being inducted into the Fragrance Hall of Fame where it will rest on all of its ruby red grapefruit and bergamot laurels alongside previous winners like Elizabeth Arden's Red Door.

Here's the list of big winners. Did your go-to merit a mention? Mine (Paris by Yves St. Laurent) did not. But I'm not bitter. The fewer people that know how sublime it is, the more original I remain. Oops.
