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.
