My quest has so far led me to Amazon, where I purchased a patchouli scent from a company called Shea ScentSations, Etsy, where I purchased two wonderful scents from the Lovely Body company, and Belle Butters, where I purchased a Warm Vanilla scent that is advertised as being both for the body and the hair.
I have so far purchased eleven scents from the Perfume Chick, and am working up to acquiring the entire collection. The scents are unique and most of all, long lasting. I am by far no shea butter expert, but in comparing Perfume Chick’s consistency to that of Lovely Body and Belle Butters, it is easy to see Perfume Chick is using shea that hasn’t been bleached or stripped of its natural properties.
Still, Lovely Body makes some lovely scents, and I highly recommend Pink Citrus if you want a unique fragrance. Belle Butters is extremely popular and already has a name online. Of all the shea butters I purchased, this one had the faintest smell, almost none at all. I believe Belle Butters is used by most people as a hair dressing, rather than a fragrance, which is what I was essentially purchasing it for use as. Having said that, I too have opted to use it on my hair and would recommend it to those of you, who like me, still grease their scalps (lol).
However, if you wanna smell like a million bucks, without actually spending a million, Perfume Chick is your best bet. My daughter uses Strawberry Shortcake and the nurses at the hospital are in love with how good it makes her entire room smell. The scent just lingers. Likewise, I get tons of compliments from my Mango Madness scent, which is the brand’s biggest seller. Whether alone or layered with the matching body mist or perfume, you can’t go wrong.
Other scents I highly recommend are Beloved, Baby Powder, the not for the faint at heart Cocoa Butter & Shea Butter with Tonka and Pink Champaigne, which yes, smells exactly like it’s name. Your man might actually get drunk off of you.

This post is NOT an advertisement. I just love me some scented shea butter.
Rest in peace to the perfume chick (LaShawn Lindsey). She passed away some months ago. I learned of her products via Tamar and Trina Braxton’s Facebook pages. Thankfully, her family is continuing on with her legacy.
