The competition is sponsored by the Doctor Aromas Foundation, a local non-profit that focuses on fragrance research and incorporating the sense of smell into the creative process. Since its inception in 2016, the Doctor Aromas Foundation has presented more than $16,000 in scholarships to date.

Doctor Aromas Foundation is pleased to announce the following top winners of the 2020 Art of Aromas competition:

  • First Place - Maria Alejandra Espejo "Ethereal"
  • Second Place - Nathaniel Campos "Sytrine"
  • Third Place - Isabella Sanchez "Popsicream"

"This competition gave our students the chance to explore their skills in an exciting way. It was fun to see the students immerse themselves in the process of creating artwork inspired by fragrance while also making the fragrance an integral part of the finished artwork," says Gary Logan, visual art director for MAC Wynwood. 

The mystery fragrance revealed during the reception was Alegria. This fragrance, created in collaboration with Cosmo Fragrances, consists of a soft and sensual blend of exquisite florals, combined with delicate jasmines, sweet vanilla orchid, and warm apple accents infused with orange and cedar-wood essential oils.  

Winners were chosen by a panel of judges that included local curator Mali Parkerson, gallery owner Troy Taylor, and fragrance industry expert Florie-Ann Tanquerel.

"We look forward to continuing our relationship with Miami Arts Charter and supporting these very talented students," says Marcelo Zelicovich, founder of Doctor Aromas. "Fragrance is an important element to a multitude of creative endeavors, and we are proud to provide an atmosphere that encourages emerging talent to grow."
