Winners: Basenotes Reader Awards 2012

Basenotes hijacked Olfactory Event's Evening of Leather to announce the winners of the Basenotes Reader Awards 2012 in a pop-up awards ceremony. The winners were voted for by the Basenotes readers, who paid tribute to Mona di Orio by voting her "Perfumer of the Year", and "House of the year". Attendees had the chance to sniff the winners, and runners up. The winners are as follows:
