Black Scents Makes Sense: Black-Owned Fragrance Houses
Innovative creativity among gifted and passionate Black entrepreneurs is changing the landscape of the Fragrance industry! During the lockdown that many of us experienced we looked for constructive things to occupy our minds. This writer turned to youtube music videos. One day a fresh kind of video content came into my youtube feed and life has not been the same since!
It was a musician, a jazz musician who played trumpet. Yet it was not a music video. He became talking about fragrances and that I need to join the fresh squad if I liked fragrances and fragrance content. This piqued my interest. At the time I had 2 bottles of fragrances that I was most proud of. The man in the video is what I came to learn was a fragrance reviewer or fragrance influencer. His name is Justin Copeland from the West Coast. This video segment covered Black owned fragrance houses. What? Are there such entities? Yes, Family there are. In this video Justin covered about 5 different Black-owned Fragrance Houses. One of which was no longer in business. I was amazed at this new body of information. Like most men I wore what my girlfriend, wife or mother bought and stayed with it until someone bought me another "gift set" that included "soap on a rope" fragrance bar. Yes, you know the one.
