We are pleased to announce that The Scented Salamander was nominated for a Fabbies Award, a fashion prize for blogs and e-zines, in the Beauty Category.
We want to say that it is heartwarming to see fragrance recognized as an essential part of daily beauty rituals.
At a time when the internet has become the preferred venue for women consumers, it is only fitting that specialized prizes for online media are created. A new SOFRES study, just out, conducted at the general European level, reveals that the internet is the media, of all the medias, that receive the highest marks from women and that 87% of them think that the new media have made them more interested in what the brands have to offer (FashionMag.fr, 01/29/2008). A 2007 Nielsen survey quoted by Inc magazine next month reveals that "a surprising 66 percent of North American consumers trust blogs as a source of product information,"(Inc, Feb 2008). As an anticipation of these trends, last year, the Glam Media network, of which this blog is an affiliate became the #1 online women property.
Congrats to all the nominees and many, may thanks to all the readers, commenters, interviewees, colleagues, and guest writers that have contributed to the quality and popularity of The Scented Salamander, The Fragrance Blog & Daily Webzine.
You can vote for this blog until April 30th 2008 (you need to sign up) by clicking on the banner below or on the Vote-For-Me button in the upper left side of the site pages.
The awards will be handed out at a ceremony scheduled to kick off New York Fashion Week in September of 2008.
Again, Thank You So Much!
