SELF's Fragrance Awards 2011

As the year starts to wind down, a lot of beauty awards are being handed out. I love looking at these lists for a few reasons:

- I love seeing if my favourites made the list
- it's a great way to build a shopping list of things that I'd like to try
- with the holidays coming up, it's easy to pick up some great gift ideas

So, here's the first of several posts outlining some of these "best of" lists!
