Our journey with Boy Smells

Since launching in 2016, Boy Smells has sought to better express the evolving ideas around gender with the creation of a new world of products coined 'genderful' - a notion that resonated with True. We've seen a number of brands in the consumer space abandon traditional gender categorisations and the Boy Smells unique approach and great founding team are just some of the reasons for our investment at the end of 2021.
