Using gorgeous natural scents, these perfumes will leave you smelling irresistible without causing any harm to the environment. As they are tested on humans and not animals, you can enjoy the lovely scents completely guilt-free. From calming jasmine to fresh citrus, here are 4 essential cruelty-free perfumes.
#1 Le Labo Jasmin 17
Le Labo prides itself on the fact that they believe that cosmetics should be tested on New Yorkers, not animals. For a cruelty-free perfume that’s imbued with a sweet and rich Jasmine scent, look no further than Le Labo’s. A harmonious blend of sandalwood, jasmine, and vanilla is just a guilt-free spray away.
#2 Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum
Le Labo Fragrances prides itself in testing fragrances on New Yorkers, rather than on animals. They are an exclusive niche perfume, sold in unique packaging and branded in a minimalistic fashion. The Santal 33 is powerful and seductive, smokey, sandalwood and cardamom based fragrance that can be men’s or women’s. The scent is not falling into category or feminine or masculine. And it is my favorite.
#3 Skylar Capri
Citrus scented with bergamont and Neroli added, this cruetly free perfume has became a favorite of many. Great for the summer and for the skin. A truly must have.
#4 French Girl Liquid Parfum
Based on a philosophy surrounding sustainability and conscious consumption, French Girl offers vegan, cruelty-free products and affordable luxury for everyday self-care. The eco-luxe beauty brand’s curated line of perfumes are inspired by Old World principles of luxury combined with a New World view: clean, cruelty-free, non-toxic scent blends composed with pure, plant-based substances and without synthetics, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
Formulated from pure plant sources and sustainable materials, French Girl’s line of parfums are richly-scented, conveniently sized, last longer and smell stronger – meaning you can use less product to achieve you desired scent.
