House of Matriarch is happy to share that BONSAI has just been announced as a finalist for the 7th Annual Art and Olfaction Awards.
BONSAI stood out from the hundreds of entries submitted from around the world.
Awarded to just eight perfumes and projects a year, The Art and Olfaction Awards are designed to celebrate excellence in independent perfumery, and raise public interest and awareness around new developments in perfumery on a global scale.
The Awards, established in 2014 by The Institute for Art and Olfaction, are given to outstanding creators in the categories of independent, artisan, and experimental perfume from across the globe, chosen for perfumes and experimental projects with scent released in 2019. In addition to those juried categories, the Art and Olfaction Awards honor excellent work being done in three discretionary categories: The Contribution to Scent Culture Award, The Septimus Piesse Award for Exceptional Vison, and the Aftel Award for Handmade Perfume.
This year’s Art and Olfaction Awards events will take place in a public ceremony at Cicada Club in Los Angeles, in late September. Each Art and Olfaction Award winner will receive The Golden Pear, which continues to cement its status as an important achievement in the perfume world.
