Black Girls Smell Good: Best Fragrances For Black Women

We can all agree that someone saying that we smell good is probably one of our favorite compliments! It’s a must and a part of every woman’s routine. If you’re looking for a great fragrance to add to your routine just in time for spring and summer, Been Worthy has accumulated some fragrance favorites courtesy of #PerfumeTok! Check them out below! 

With Spring here and summer right around the corner, these are the perfect fruity, floral, and sweet scents every girl needs.


Italian Bergamot, jasmine, vanilla, and modern woods are all the notes that make this Valentino fragrance what it is: THAT GIRL. The top note is bergamot as it stimulates the nose and awakens you. The vanilla Bourbon and jasmine add to the complex heart of the fragrance, creating a dark luxurious scent. As the base, modern woods bring warm tonalities. You cannot go wrong with adding this to your fragrance collection. 

Marc Jacobs Daisy

This layerable scent, like many listed, has that pure, feminine touch. Let’s break them down. The top of the fragrance is filled with wild berries and soft white violet leaves. At the heart, warm jasmine and strawberry merge with the base, dry sandalwood, which gives it a romantic finish. This fragrance is great for everyday wear and a nice brunch with the girls.

Bacarrat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum 

With a mix of jasmine blossoms and woody musks, this fragrance is great for a night out and has a flirty, airy scent that will turn heads! It’s on the expensive side, so if you’re looking for a more affordable “dupe” try the Flaunt Rouge by Joseph Private.

YSL Libre 

Now, if you want to switch it up for a nice date night, the YSL Libre is your go-to. It’s a different twist on the floral fragrance including signature notes of lavender essence, and Moroccan orange blossom combined with warm vanilla. It’s a long-lasting scent that screams grown, sexy woman with a touch of sweetness. 

Here’s a perfume hack!

If you want to layer and make your perfume last all day, be sure to apply the Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream for that long-lasting effect! 

The Sol De Janiero Brazilian Bum Bum Cream has a rich butter scent and beauty blend that includes acai oil, cupuacu butter, used to hydrate and soften your skin. Though it comes in more than one scent, the orange tube has a warm and spicy scent with notes of vanilla, salted caramel, and pistachio. The notes are perfect to set the tone for spring and summer! Check out the other scents to match the cream with your fragrance for that perfect scent. 

You can apply any cream or lotion of your choice to damp skin to get a long-lasting effect and smell good all day long! Layers are important.

Read and research before you buy to ensure it’s the scent you’re going for. Play around in your perfume collection to see what scents you can create this spring and summer and layer up!
