The Fragrance Foundation, in conjunction with Elements Showcase, revealed Monday night in New York City that Amber Oud by Kilian has won the 2013 Fragrance Foundation Indie Award.
An Indie fragrance, according to competition rules, is an established brand that has been on the market for at least two years, but is not owned or distributed by a large company. Scored from one to five — five being the highest score — 30 entries were judged based on both the fragrance and packaging.
“Amber Oud’s provocative scent and innovative packaging helped it stand out in the creative and forward-thinking Indie category,” said Elizabeth Musmanno, president of the Fragrance Foundation. “The Foundation always looks with anticipation and respect at the new Indie launches each year.”
