About the Basenotes Fragrance Awards
At the end of every year, fragrance website, Basenotes, has asked fragrance consumers which fragrances they have enjoyed in that year. The results are then tallied and announced in February. Last year the awards were dominated by the French house of Creed who picked up four awards (Best Fragrance House, Best Fragrance for Daywear, Best Masculine Niche Fragrance and Best Feminine Niche Fragrance). Two awards each were picked up by Yves Saint Laurent (Best feminine fragrance for daywear and Best masculine fragrance for evening) and Thierry Mugler (Best feminine fragrance for evening and Best masculine fragrance).

Voting for those was surprisingly slow going... nailing it down to just one "best" was crazy hard. Especially when they're categorized into masculine and feminine, which seems rather frustrating when I have to plug round pegs into square holes (I mean, Terre d'Hermes! It fits all, but generally seems to work for women better!)

I know! Took me like half an hour to decide on just one entry in each category. :-)
