Ariana Grande wins top perfume award
The thank u, next hitmaker entered the perfume market in 2015 with debut scent ARI by Ariana Grande. She launched her fifth fragrance, Cloud, in September 2018.
Housed in a cloud-shaped bottle, it is described as a "dreamy blend of alluring lavender blossom, forbidden juicy pear, and mouth-watering bergamot," while it is designed as an "uplifting scent that imbues a thoughtful, artistic expression of positivity and happiness," according to officials at her perfume partner Ulta Beauty.
On Wednesday, Cloud beat out the likes of Britney Spears' Prerogative, Kim Kardashian's KKW Body, Victoria's Secret's Tease Rebel, and Wild Spirit Fragrances' Driftwood Eau de Parfum.
Other big winners on the night included Tom Ford, who was inducted to the Fragrance Foundation Hall of Fame and won Fragrance of the Year: Women's Luxury for Lost Cherry, perfumer Dominique Ropion, who received the Lifetime Achievement prize, and Marc Jacobs, who took home honours for Social Media Campaign of the Year and Consumer Choice: Women's Prestige, both for Marc Jacobs Daisy Love.
