Is Addison Rae's Perfume Line Actually Good, Or Just An Influencer Fad?

Very few 20-something-year-olds have the chance to call Kourtney Kardashian their “bestie,” let alone just hang out with the famous Kardashian-Jenner sisters. That is Addison Rae for you. As one of the most-followed people on TikTok, she sashayed into our hearts with her adorable dance moves. People were drawn to this brunette beauty’s fun lip-sync and choreographed moves that have her dancing straight into the bank, and Forbes reported she was TikTok’s highest-earning star in 2020. She is more than just an influencer because she is an actress who starred in the Netflix movie “He’s All That” and a singer, per Seventeen.

This queen of Gen Z released her own beauty line, “Item Beauty,” with skincare and makeup products at Sephora in 2021. Rae told Byrdie, “Having ITEM now as a part of the Clean at Sephora category is just so incredible and exciting because it was really formative during that time when I was learning what I enjoy about makeup and what kind of products I like.” They are all vegan and cruelty-free, plus affordable because everything is under $30. And, the Beauty Mogul didn’t stop at that because she created the most unique line of perfumes, Addison Rae Fragrance, with three scents that may just win you over. Rae is more than a pretty face, she is one savvy businesswoman.

Addison Rae’s perfume line is mood-boosting and cool AF

Addison Rae Fragrance has three scents, and they are conveniently named Chill AF, Hyped AF, and Happy AF because that’s precisely how it makes you feel. Inspired by nature, this very Gen Z line of perfumes comes in bottles made with heat-activated technology that can change color. Even the bottles are shaped like crystals with an aura. Chill AF gives you a daily dose of calm and is infused with pear blossom, chamomile tea, and soothing sandalwood. Hyped AF promises you an energy boost and is made with blood orange, pineapple flower, and musk. Happy AF will make you smile with its blend of pink lychee, red grapefruit, and dewy peony. They retail for $40 at Addison Rae Fragrance.

PopSugar is a fan of the trio of perfumes, claiming it reminds them of Victoria’s Secrets perfumes popular in high school. Their favorite is Happy AF because it is a great pick-me-up in the afternoon and may also help you be more productive, which will make you happier. Elite Daily raves about the three perfumes because they are made with environmentally-friendly ingredients like the sugarcane industry’s derivatives that would otherwise go to waste. How sustainable. Seventeen recommends these scents because they are made with “neuroscience technology,” so the smells actually affect the brain to feel relaxed, energetic, or happy when you smell them. It’s pretty genius actually because you can choose to smell the way you want to feel.
