BERLIN — “What I smelled was courageous, creative and brave,” said judge and perfumer Andy Tauer, addressing the crowd at Saturday’s Art and Olfaction Awards. The Swiss niche perfumer was on hand to help deliver prizes for the event’s fourth edition, its first ever away from home.
The awards are a program of the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Institute for Art and Olfaction, which connects and supports independent perfumers and artists, and educates the public about the craft and magic of scent.
