The 2014 fragrance awards season is over, and we have a winner: Giorgio Armani Sì, which took 5 awards.* Actress Cate Blanchett reportedly received $10 million to appear in the Sì campaign.

Bottega Veneta Pour Homme and Paco Rabanne Invictus are tied for second place, with 3 awards each.

A quick run down of past winners:

2013: Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb, with 6 awards

2012: Gucci Guilty Pour Homme, with 5 awards

2011: Bleu de Chanel, with 8 awards

2010: Marc Jacobs Lola, with 7 awards

2009: Chloé Eau de Parfum, with 5 awards

2008: Marc Jacobs Daisy, with 7 awards

*This is my own (very) unofficial count, mind you, and only includes the award categories I report on — I usually skip awards for things like advertising and packaging, and I frequently skip consumer choice awards too. And it includes one late-in-the-year award program from 2013 (the Fifi Awards Arabia, which takes place in November).

    I love Armani Si! Only reason I’ve tried it, though, is because I ordered some samples on eBay. Anyone know why this fragrance isn’t available in the U.S.? Curious.

    • Robin says:

      You can buy it on Armani’s US website & at a few of the discount websites, not sure why it isn’t yet more widely available here — originally they said the US launch would be first quarter 2014, but must have been pushed back.

      • Karin says:

        Oooh! They have a rollerball! $28 for 10 ml, though…

        • Robin says:

          Yeah. But at least you don’t have to buy 50 ml, right?

          • Karin says:

            True!!! Love the smaller option!!!
