"Awarded to just five perfumers a year, The Art and Olfaction Award is a highly competitive and highly selective award, designed to raise interest and awareness for active independent, artisan, and experimental perfumers from all countries. Our hope is that by shining a spotlight on perfumery’s most outstanding creators, we—in turn—will help generate support for independent perfumery, as a whole." –The Institute for Art and Olfaction

For the first time since its inception, The Art and Olfaction Awards ceremony is open to the public! At this fragrance fête of the season—in the Hammer’s bamboo-lined courtyard—the prestigious Golden Pear awards will be announced. With special guest emcee Zackary Drucker (artist, Whitney Biennial 2014; Co-Producer, Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning Transparent) and music by DJ Victor Rodriguez (Shits & Giggles, Cub Scout, Bears in Space) and DJ Javi en Rose (Litterbox, The Black Arts, Lush). Enjoy a drink at the cash bar. Festive attire recommended.
