The Perfumed Plume has announced its 2019 Fragrance Book of the Year Winner -- the legendary Annette Green, for her new book, “Spritzing to Success…With the Woman Who Brought an Industry to Its Senses.”
Green has had an illustrious career in the fragrance industry, the Perfumed Plume states, adding, "She changed, shaped and developed not only the face of the business from the inside, but how the consumer perceived, bought and came to love perfume in all its forms."
About the book, Perfumed Plume comments:
“Spritzing to Success” reads like a who’s who, an encyclopedia, memoir and anthology all rolled into one narrative, not to mention Ms. Green’s witty, ‘tell it like it is’ style. Frank and outspoken at times, Ms. Green lifts the lid, doesn’t mince words and showers love and a deep sense of caring on all aspects of the fragrance world.
Green says, “I thank the Perfumed Plume Committee for this accolade. It is a joy to be honored along with such gifted writers, all of whom elevate the art and craft of fragrance through their perfume stories.”
Lyn Leigh and Mary Ellen Lapsansky, co-founders, Perfumed Plume, explain, “This award is presented at the discretion of the Perfumed Plume Consulting Committee. It was a unanimous decision that “Spritzing to Success” is the one book written in 2018 that deserved this special award not only because it was written by a truly passionate fragrance industry icon, but also because it shares so many wonderful moments in the industry’s glorious history,”
