The Only Black Owned Scent You Need To Try On National Fragrance Day

Get reacquainted with the #BuyBlack movement by coveting one of our favorite Black-owned scents.

It's National Fragrance Day, a holiday most of us didn't know existed until today. Perhaps you could care less about obscure beauty product celebrations--and that's totally fine. 

However, as someone who hoards perfume on her work desk, the chance to gab unapologetically about my favorite scents is priceless. I rarely wear the same fragrance more than a couple days in a row, so discovery plays a huge role in my beauty routine.

And I could spend the next couple of minutes waxing poetic about the ones that stay in my rotation (Carolina Herrera's Good Girl, Elizabeth & James' Nirvana White, Sol De Janeiro's Brazilian Crush Mist), but I won't.

Instead, take a moment to get reacquainted with the #BuyBlack movement by coveting one of our favorite Black-owned scents of the moment: Kimberly New York's ARTSY.

Available as an eau de parfum or rollerball (above), it carries a one-of-a-kind scent, made up of red candied apple, sparkling violet, marshmallow accord and creamy sandalwood. In short, it's probably unlike anything you've worn before and at just $45, we'd say it's worth a try. 

If you don't know...now you know. Shop the entire brand here.
