#CFBA2017: A Night to Remember

Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s Fragrance and Beauty awards at the Carlu in Toronto. A special thanks to our 2017 sponsors for helping make this event happen. Congratulations to all the finalists and winners this year. Looking forward to presenting the new Canadian Beauty Awards in 2018. — Jim Hicks, Publisher and Director of Beauty Events & Awards

On May 25, 2017 over 320 beauty-industry insiders gathered to celebrate the most innovative and best-loved skincare, fragrance and cosmetics. From 55 finalists — the largest number to date —16 winners beat out the rest to take home the awards (see list below). The #CFBA2017 was trending on Twitter as the announcements were made and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Christine Dallaire made her stellar acceptance speech. The after party sponsored by Icon saw dance-floor action, fuelled by cocktails and sliders.
