06 Amanu wins indie fragrance award

Odin New York's 06 Amanu has won the 2012 FiFi 'Indie' Fragrance Award

Odin New York’s 06 Amanu has won the 2012 FiFi ‘Indie’ Fragrance Award, presented at a ceremony in New York City.

Presenting the $10,000 cheque to the co-creators of 06 Amanu, Cos Policastro, executive vice president of fine fragrances at Givaudan, which sponsored the award, said: “This is a true achievement and we wish 06 Amanu and all the ‘indie’ brands continued success in the future. These independent creators play an important role in our industry by engaging the consumer with their unique stories.”

The scent is described as a “primitive ambiance of southern Mediterranean peaks combined with the ancient fertility of Anatolian soils which bring forth a herbaceous blend of verdant galbanum and raw lentisque. The cortex of Amanu revolves around the woody rusticity of cedarleaf and the heady complexity of jasmine sambac. Rooting textures of amberwood, musk and live moss endow the earthy scent with a lush maturity.”

The top notes of the fragrance are blood orange, green galbanum, lentisque, supported by middle notes of aged cedarleaf, jasmin sambac and magnolia. At its base are notes of amberwood, sheer musk and live moss.

“We are very proud to have won the 2012 FiFi ‘Indie’ Fragrance Award,” said the co- creators of 06 Amanu. “It was a labour of love to create a fragrance with such a romantic and exotic heritage.”

The other finalists in the category were: Cuirs from Carner Barcelona, Bois 1920’s Come L’Amore, La Fumée from Miller Harris and Siberian Snow from D.S. & Durga.

The FiFi Awards are organised by The Fragrance Foundation.
