About the Test And Judges

WWD Digital Daily - - Fragrance Foundation Awards -

This is a blind test, pan­elists are given vials of uniden­ti­fied scent to judge im­par­tially. Each of them gives a score rang­ing from 1 (for­get­table) to 10 (un­for­get­table) and the num­bers are com­puted into a fi­nal grade. The judges, led by chair­man Michael Ed­wards, also make cri­tiques, which are unattributed to en­cour­age can­dor. The most promis­ing scents are picked for judg­ing in an ef­fort to find and show­case ex­cel­lence. WWD buys the prod­ucts at re­tail, like any other con­sumer.
