On Friday morning, the top floor of the Mandarin Oriental was packed with fragrance industry executives for the Fragrance Foundation’s 2013 Finalists Breakfast. At the event, hosted by actress Christine Baranski, finalists were narrowed down and prizes were awarded. Among the morning’s winners were Nest Fragrances for the Aerin Home Fragrance Collection, which was awarded Interior Scent Collection of the Year and Crabtree and Evelyn for its West Indian Lime collection, which won Bath and Body Line of the Year.
