Inter Parfums, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: IPAR) today announced that it won a Best Fragrance award for Anthropologie 1922 Lily Sanguine Eau de Parfum in the Specialty Brand Women’s category at the 40 th Annual FiFi Awards held on Monday, May 21, 2012. The FiFis, dubbed the “Oscars” of the fragrance industry, was hosted by actress Jane Lynch, star of the TV hit Glee at Alice Tully Hall in New York City’s Lincoln Center.

Andy Clarke, President of Inter Parfums USA noted, “We are very proud of winning this prestigious award and sharing the honor with our friends at Anthropologie.”

Sold exclusively at Anthropologie stores and website, 1922 Lily Sanguine Eau de Parfum is evocative of the exoticism and mystery experienced by young women touring the Far East in the 1920s. This scent is a decadent oriental bouquet, steeped in rich, slightly retro, floral accords. It is housed in an amethyst-hued pillow-top glass bottle and capped with a sculptural pair of birds, which were major design motifs of the 1920s. The fragrance was created by Rodrigo Flores-Roux of Givaudan, with notes of acacia flower absolute, Tunisian neroli and hawthorn mixed with orange flower absolute, Regal Lily ScentTrek, and Florentine iris, balsam and Madagascar vanilla.
