The finalists for the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors’ seventh annual CITY (Cosmetic Innovator of The Year) Awards were announced last week.

Unlike the Oscars most years, there isn’t a clear favorite for one CITY nominee to win really big with something—such as five of the prestigious awards.

Nevertheless, please get your ballots out, ladies and gents ...

Here’s who could be winning CITYs—usually, one per category—during the dinner ceremony June 20 at the Manhattan Penthouse in New York City along with my picks (not that I have a say in any of this).

Elements Showcase provides a fresh take on the concept of a trade show, introducing buyers to the world of scents.

The Elements Showcase was held on Jan. 30-31 at Skylight West in New York City. The show, which is advertised as a “curated” fragrance and design show, showcased the artistic side of the industry.
