2020 Voting Process

TFF MEMBER VOTING – Voting Closed

TFF Member voting is voted on by The Fragrance Foundation members. All companies are assigned a number of votes based on their annual USA fragrance sales volume. No company or retailer alone has the number of votes to ensure a winner. 

EXPERT PANEL VOTING – Voting Closed

Expert panel voting categories are voted on by industry experts with experience and expertise specific to the category, and an objective perspective. No expert votes on a category where they are a nominee or have an affiliation with a nominee. These experts’ identities are confidential to TFF, and they are not shared to avoid bias. Their votes are anonymous and not linked to their identity.

CONSUMER CHOICE VOTING – Voting Closed

Consumer choice voting is voted on by the USA Consumer. The technology monitors voting to minimize and eliminate “robot” voting as well as more than one vote per individual. 

TFF AWARDS 2021

For the Awards next year/2021, nominations for the TFF Awards are for all categories of fragrance launched/sold in the USA in 2020. Nominations will open in December 2020 and be available on TFF website. Each category has specific criteria which will be clearly stated when nominations open.
