About Chavalia

Pink MahogHany is an independent fragrance brand owned and operated by Chavalia, a self-taught niche perfumer from Longview, Texas (by way of Dallas.) With a background in both music and education, Chavalia treats each composition as an alluringly intriguing song that takes the wearer on a unique, unforgettable journey. Designed to “court the skin” and flirt with the air, PM initiates and carries its conversation with eloquence.

Chavalia founded Pink MahogHany in 2005, when she began to notice the scents of once favorite fragrances changing without notice. Amidst these changes also came an influx of complaints from those whom she conversed with. Frustrations from an inability to wear or use certain fragrances due to adverse reactions such as headaches, rashes and other allergy-like symptoms placed urgency on her quest to create a line of products that gratify the senses without the addition of some of the less than desirable ingredients.

Through her constant research and many forms of trial and error, Chavalia aims to educate and provide transparency, all while helping others feel more confident about using fragrance on their skin and in their space.

She has been featured in: Cosmopolitan, Yahoo!, MSN, The Zoe Report, Byrdie Beauty, FASHIONISTA, PopSugar (US/UK), Huffington Post, Ebony Magazine, Essence and Ça fleure bon. She has been a guest speaker at the Institute for Art and Olfaction.
