Out of all these fragrances, you support a Black perfumer. Black Perfumers are rare to be seen in the fragrance industry. It was a struggle for us to find Black Owned Perfume Brands. They are out there but, not enough. The industry makes it harder to enter into the class prices to the materials costs. We hope that you enjoy these brands as much as we do and continue to support them.
