In December, Marie Claire Arabia hosted its prestigious “Marie Claire International Fragrance Awards” at the iconic Leila Heller Gallery Perfume House in Dubai, where hand-picked guests from the beauty, lifestyle and art industries were invited to participate in a special voting session to select their favourite oriental fragrance. At the event, Marie Claire invited four local artists, Sara Ibrahim, Ghanim Mubarak, Juma AlHaj, Noor Al Suwaidi, to reinterpret each fragrance based on its notes and ingredients.

The prestigious Marie Claire International Fragrance Awards were created 12 years ago and are held annually to celebrate the very best in fragrances. Through its international editions and worldwide exposure, Marie Claire ensures that the “Marie Claire International Fragrance Awards” are the leading awards, offering global visibility to the world of perfume.

They are 4 categories: Best Women’s Fragrance Award, Innovation and Creativity Award, Best Women’s Fragrance Bottle Award and Best Men’s fragrance Award.

In addition to the 4 international awards, each Marie Claire edition can grant two National Awards to the “Best National Women’s Fragrance” and “Best National Men’s Fragrance”.

This year, the 2021 winners were more innovative, visually captivating and sensorial than ever.
