In 2023, the Association & the François Coty Prize marked a page in their history by changing their name to that of the Prix du Phénix.

Always adorning the family coat of arms, the Phoenix, universal symbol of rebirth, inspires this new cycle. Associated with the element of fire, it wonderfully embodies the flame and passion of the perfumer-creators that this international prize, the most prestigious in the world of perfume, has been rewarding since the year 2000.
