THE PHENIX AWARD
A NEW BIRTH FOR THE FRANÇOIS COTY AWARD
In 2023, the Association and the Prix François Coty marked a page in their history by changing names to Phenix.
The Phenix, a universal symbol of rebirth, has always adorned the family coat of arms, inspiring this new cycle. Associated with the fire element, it perfectly embodies the flame and passion of perfumers-creators that this international award, the most prestigious in the world of perfume, has been rewarding since 2000.
