Episode 33: Confessions of a Rebel

Starting a Scent Revolution, with Confessions of a Rebel's Jeniece Trizzino



About the Episode

What do men's and women's top fragrances have in common? It comes down to 13 notes that are perfectly gender-fluid. This was one of the "a-ha!" moments for Scentbird while developing its very first fragrance line: Confessions of a Rebel, which launched in 2018. The team set out to push against outdated archetypes and invite raw, unfiltered self-expression that goes beyond the binary. One of the creative forces behind the brand is Jeniece Trizzino, VP of Innovation & Physical Product.

In this episode, Jeniece sits down with Brittney Jackson Moseley, who runs integrated marketing at Scentbird. She talks about what it was like to shape the brand hand in hand with customers, how Get a Room became an instant bestseller, and why she believes fragrance is the final frontier for beauty to catch up with modern society. We also step into a "Confessional Booth" where real people share their most intimate confessions involving ice cream, a bodybuilder, and even an exotic dancer.
