Why do they have these awards already when 2013 is not over, and there are still new items being released? As for Justin Bieber being America's favorite, well that's just sad. Surely American women are buying much more of other perfumes. There are so many nicer perfumes out this year in much nicer bottles than Bieber's.

This is a disappointment - to say the least. I'm not sure why I wasn't signed in for the last post.

This list makes me sad, with few exceptions. Robertet one of them. Deserved award.

Justin B? Seriously? There are thousands of perfumes to choose from. Lush, rich perfumes, yet these choices don't reflect that in my opinion.

Leads me to believe the politics involved must be invasive. :(

Justin Bieber…What! Do we have a bunch of 12 year old girls voting now? Seriously, the fragrance world has so much to offer from genius perfumers with exquisite tastes. It’s disappointing to see a celebrity fragrance receive more praise than a perfume that is actually worthy of an award!

I am shocked at the winners. They belong to the overly commercialized school of fragrance. How in the world could Girlfriend Justin Bieber win any kind of award at all? The bottle is grossly derivative of the work of renowned designer Serge Mansau And the fragrance screams cheap.

I am deeply shocked at this. ONCE, PARFUM WAS AN ART FORM!

Is this for real? I can't even remember the last time I saw Red Door from EA in shops or know someone who likes it.The men's choice looks much better that women's.
And JB Girlfriend? Ugly bottle + generic smell+ poor longevity.
Looks like someone just sponsored this perfumes to win.

Interesting- I had not heard of these awards so I googled it- there is a Fragrance Foundation listed in the U.K. which also had awards, and the results are different to those above which I assume was the U.S.A. division...I didn't think that Red Door was popular in the U.K!

This seems to be insiders recognizing only other big name industry insiders. Interesting choices.

I totally agree with Florabotanica winning the packaging award- the bottle and box are pure genius and the scent is unusual and well done. I'm a little surprised to find it in 1st place; however, since everyone else seems to have put out mostly flankers in 2013, it may be well deserved.

But, lifetime achievement to Red Door? Arrgghh!
The only things worse are Sunflowers and Bluegrass. EA should have been awarded the worst so-called fragrances of all time award-lol.

Florabotanica really? I mean, as a stand alone perfume to spray on the air and smell it's fine, but nobody wants to smell like bong water. It's beautyfully crafted but unwearable (not unbearable tho)

It's interesting to see that the judging is based less on fragrance quality and divided among 5 categories, which probably explains the outcomes. I won't rip on any scent here other than to say that we've already heard a ton from Fragrance Foundation on Amber Oud, and I'm unswayed by Taylor Swift and justin Bieber as choices. It seems that Fragrance Foundation is staking its territory less on 'innovation and creativity' and more on 'popularity and judge-appeal'. Pity.

Noooo, not Red Door! That scent haunts my memories of childhood, getting choked out by my Mom's sillage on the way to piano class! Blegggh!
