These 6 Fragrances Will Evoke Your Soft Life Era

Everyone deserves to smell labor free.

Most of us have seen the #softlife hashtag trending on TikTok or the caption “soft life era” making its way to our Instagram feeds. Mainly for this trend, we’ve seen Black women indulging in purchasing high-end makeup, fragrances and lavish trips, getting everything they deserve. But what does having a soft life mean? The soft life trend is about walking along the path of least resistance, embodying softness and sensuality and walking into the fullness of your most authentic self.

It may be a small thing on the grander scale of life, but having a perfume that speaks to unapologetic feminine energy is powerful and will catapult you to greater heights. There’s an old saying, “When you look good, you do good,” but we believe that when you smell good, you’re even better. To welcome you to your new era, we’ve rounded up seven fragrances that evoke your soft girl era.
