The Artisan Perfume Awards are an annual Juried Awards competition that honors Top Artisan, Niche, and Custom Fragrances. Products from across the country are entered and sent to a panel of judges located throughout North America, who review and vote on those they consider to be the “Top Artisan Fragrances of the Year.” The three “Top Artisan Perfumer” award winners from this competition are given the title, “Official Fragrance Partner of the TASTE AWARDS.”
Carroll also serves on the Taste Makers Panel of judges for TasteTV's annual Artisan Chocolate Awards. “I am delighted to once again be among this outstanding group of A-List professionals who serve as judges. I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in past TasteTV competitions, and I look forward to the January Red Carpet Awards presentation,” said Carroll.
Finalists for The Fragrance Salon Awards are selected from nominees based on their level of excellence in the categories in which they have been nominated. Selections are based on aroma, ingredient combinations, scent seductiveness, uniqueness, artistry, and outstanding packaging design. Among the entries for the 2016 competition are DSH, El Jardin Secret, EnVoyage, Essential Alchemy, La Fleur by Lilly, Meshaz, Sonoma Scent, Xyrena and more. Winners are announced at the TasteTV Gala in January. To view a list of 2015 winners visit: http://www.artisanfragranceawards.com.
