This website is an effort in understanding.
To promote support for Black perfumers as an expected presence, rather than an anomaly, in niche and mainstream perfume outlets and platforms around the world.
To inspire STEM educators to introduce Perfumery to Black youth in schools as a potential career choice where they can explore arts, design, and science.
To make more visible to perfume wearers and makers the contributions from the global Black diaspora in the evolution of contemporary fragrance.
To stimulate healthy conversations in the vast, beautiful world of perfumery and discover where social justice, economic empowerment, and the fragrance industry can intersect.
