Elements Showcase and The Fragrance Foundation have named five finalists for the 2013 Indie Awards, which honor established brands — not owned or distributed by a large company — that have been on the market for at least two years and are sold in less than 50 doors.
The winner, chosen by a panel of beauty executives and editors, will be announced on January 28 at 7 p.m. at The Elements Showcase for The Fragrance Foundation Awards by Elizabeth Musmanno, president of The Fragrance Foundation.
“The Fragrance Foundation and our industry are thrilled to support small companies who have been chosen by our industry elite,” said Musmanno. “We look forward to honoring our finalists and applauding them for their creative achievements.”
The nominees are: By Killian’s Amber Oud, Cuirelle by Ramon Monegal Perfumes Barcelona, No. 30 Eau D’Hiver by Le Cherche Midi, Carner Barcelona’s Rima Xi and Terrasse à St-Germain by Jul et Mad.
@deciem is all about transparency and approachability. At this year’s WWD Digital Beauty Forum, the brand's co-CEO @nicolakilner said talking to customers directly about the ingredients in products and how they work is key. #wwdsummits #wwdbeauty
‘We didn't know how relevant our film would be when we were making it. When Steven [Rogers] wrote the script Trump wasn't president, class divide in America wasn't as evident as it is now, though it was present. The Time’s Up movement hadn't began and the way we look at women and treat women who speak out — thankfully that is something that seems to have shifted in the last year. I think we just need to continue making art that provokes the conversation and do what we can,’ said ‘I, Tonya’ actress @margotrobbie.

Gemma Arterton is joined on the @bafta’s red carpet by Eileen Pullen and Gwen Davis, the two women who started the fight for the pay-gap. ‘They represent a normal person speaking out for what is right. Speak out, we will listen and anyone can speak out,’ said Arterton. #eebaftas #timesup #wwdeye (📸: David Fisher)
