And the winners of the FIFI D’OR….

Dear Shaded Viewers,

It was an honor to be chosen by this year's President, Jean Paul Gaultier,  to sit on the jury for the 2015 FIFI D'OR of the Fragrance Foundation France. Our mission was to select the winner in the men's and women's categories from a short list. The jury considered the fragrance,  the bottle, the packaging and the communication. The winners: Valentino for Men and My Burberry from Burberry for women.

Elisabeth Quin was our amazing master of cermonies, she kept us all entertained and Jean Paul Gaultier was this year's president and the two of them together were excellent. The Oscars would be so much more fun if they were in control.
