The 27th French FIFI Awards took place on June 13th 2019 in the centre of Salle Wagram (Paris), bringing together hundreds of professionals and guests of the perfume industry. The French FiFi Awards differ from the UK and US ceremonies with their 3 distinct voting categories.
Prix du public – determined by the vote of Internet users
Prix des professionnels – determined by the vote of professionals whose companies are members of the Fragrance Foundation
Le prix des Experts – determined by the vote of a group of journalists and evaluators of adherent companies.
The public and the panel of professionals vote for perfumes belonging to the same categories and the industry experts, meanwhile, focus on the field of niche perfumery, as well as the exclusive ranges of major brands.
