Discover the Art of Mindful Self-Care with MOODEAUX’s Brianna Arps, Journalist Turned Perfumer

An Instagram Live interview with PGS founder Aeshia DeVore Branch.

Brianna “B.A.” Arps, the Founder and CEO of MOODEAUX, embarked on a transformative journey from a Refinery29 editor to a marketing expert. Her deep-seated passion for people, storytelling, and the world of beauty led to the creation of her cherished “brand-children,” MOODEAUX® and Black In Fragrance.™ Understanding the profound impact of scent on our daily lives, this passionate entrepreneur recognized fragrance as a powerful tool for mindful self-care, a sentiment we wholeheartedly share. Brianna is no stranger to the world of wellness, and her journey began in her hometown of St. Louis nearly a decade ago when she joined our health journalism program as a student reporter. Since then, she has blossomed into a remarkable force of inspiration and empowerment.
