LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / July 22, 2020 / Every man owns at least one fragrance bottle. Some own lines of fragrance bottles on top of their dresser. But if there's one brand worth adding to your collection or lack thereof, it's Ovation for Men.
Shawn Crenshaw, the company's founder was working as a senior executive when he realized that there was a lack of African-American images in the branding and marketing of top designer brands.
He saw it as a life-changing opportunity, and founded a fragrance brand in 2013 that initially targeted lifestyle-driven African-American consumers. Seven years later, Ovation for Men has gained a massive following.
Ovation for Men is proud to be the first indie designer fragrance celebrating the excellence, creativity, style and showmanship of men of color.
According to Shawn, his company was a labor of love. From being rejected by manufacturers to running out of products due to multiple delays, Shawn has surpassed it all. He survives, but most importantly, he thrives.
The biggest challenge for Shawn isn't found amidst his journey, but at the beginning. Starting his business from scratch, without contacts or much knowledge about the fragrance industry, was ultimately challenging for Shawn.
But like any Black man would, he persevered. He challenged himself, lived outside of his comfort zone, and believed in himself. This may sound like a cliché, but believing in yourself is one of the best things you can do. Take it from Shawn Crenshaw.
And as if you need more reasons to love Ovation for Men, Shawn is advocating for the just representation of African-American men in branding products.
"I am most proud that Ovation for Men is changing the narrative of how African-American men are perceived in product branding," Shawn says.
