Third year’s the charm.

For the first time in three years, the Fragrance Foundation held its annual awards in-person in New York at the David H. Koch Theater on Thursday. The event, which boasted north of 800 attendees, attracted executives from every major player in the booming fragrance category, as well as suppliers, retail partners and founders.

The awards’ hosts included Naomi Watts, Tommy Hilfiger, Jason Wu, Mario Lopez, Fragrance Foundation president Linda Levy and chairman Jerry Vittoria. The lineup introduced honorees ranging from major winners, including Tom Ford and Gucci, who each took home three product awards, respectively, to indie brands like The Maker and D. S. & Durga.

It was a big night for Parfums Christian Dior as well — the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned beauty behemoth took home an award for Sauvage Elixir, and that scent’s perfumer, François Demachy, won the lifetime achievement perfumer award.

Macy’s Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Jeff Gennette was inducted into the Fragrance Foundation’s Hall of Fame, given the retailer’s long-running success in the category.

Billie Eilish’s fragrance, created by Parlux, nabbed two awards, as did Burberry’s new men’s pillar, Hero.
