The 2012 FiFi Consumers’ Choice Awards Nominees
It was a beautifully sunny day in NYC. As the Space Shuttle was about to make its majestic piggyback flight over the city’s landmarks, hundreds of the fragrance industry’s finest assembled at the Grand Ballroom on the 36th Floor of The Mandarin Oriental to honor the 2012 FiFi Finalists.
We enjoyed every morsel and moment of the exquisite breakfast and exciting proceedings. Not to mention those fabulous departing gifts – goody bags chock full of FiFi Finalist Fragrances! (We’ll be gifting one to a lucky reader – watch for details this weekend!)
