TORONTO, May 3 /CNW Telbec/ - At the annual gala of the Canadian Fragrance Awards, held last Thursday night at the Eglinton Grand in Toronto, Lise Watier was honoured with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is bestowed each year to a person who has made an exceptional contribution to the growth of the Canadian fragrance industry.
"I am honoured and very touched to accept this award, which I share with the entire family of Lise Watier Cosmétiques," said Mme Watier. "From the bottom of my heart, I thank the loyal consumers, the retailers who have had faith in me and supported me, and above all the beauty advisors who share my passion and have communicated it so beautifully to Canadian women over the last 38 years."
Since the launch of Lise Watier Cosmétiques in 1972, Lise Watier has introduced many perfumes to the Canadian market, including Andrade, Harmonies, Hymne au printemps, Ivresse and the big classic, Neiges. Launched in 1993, Neiges pays tribute to all Canadian women, to their incredible strength, yet profound sensitivity. This duality was translated into this unique fragrance, feminine and delicate, yet long-lasting and powerful. Inspired by the purity of snow and winter's crystalline air, Neiges has conquered the hearts of women to become one of the most compelling success stories in the Canadian fragrance industry. More recently, Lise Watier Cosmétiques launched Désirable and Folies Neiges, and is currently preparing to extend the Neiges family in Fall 2010...
Organised by Cosmetics magazine for the past five years, the annual gala of the Canadian Fragrance Awards is the occasion to celebrate, inspire and enthusiastically promote new fragrance in the Canadian marketplace.
