Finding vegan and cruelty-free body fragrance can be difficult because fragrances often contain animal parts, such as anal sacs. On top of that, harsh ingredients, such as phthalates, petroleum and acetone are commonly found in commercial fragrances. That is what drove A Perfume Organic creator Amanda Walker to create a perfume that is organic, vegan and cruelty-free. She has quickly gained the attention of the beauty world by creating 100% organic fragrances in ecological packaging, which is unusual in the fragrance world.
As A Perfume Organic points out, synthetic fragrances are often the the culprit of health issues, such as asthma and migraines, due to the chemicals used. Further, many of the chemicals used in fragrances, such as petroleum-based ingredients, have been linked to hormone disruption which can cause a whole host of issues. Amanda specifically trained with Master Perfumers and Distillers and, taking inspiration from that training, decided to create fragrance that only used natural products such as herbs and spices, flowers and fruits.
A Perfume Organic vegan and cruelty-free beauty perfumes go beyond claiming to be organic and vegan simply to jump on the green trend. Their commitment to safe, ethical and eco-friendly products seems to seep out of every pore of their business. Their perfumes are USDA certified organic by Oregon Tilth and certified as vegan and cruelty-free by PETA. They use the bare minimum packaging needed for all of their products, and the perfume boxes are embedded with flower seeds, which means that they can be planted. All of their marketing materials are printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper, and their lab and headquarters are run on green energy. As if that were not enough, all of their materials are purchased domestically and they hand-pour their fragrances in small batches, also domestically. They offer several unique scents:
Green – Green is their signature scent and contains notes of black truffle, rose, ylang ylang, blue and roman chamomile.
Urban Organic – This is described as a “daytime perfume” because it is a fresh and light. The scents in this perfume include lemon, grapefruit, bourbon, lime peel, basil, ginger and lavender.
White Majik – This lovely perfume contains white flowers, jasmine, angelica root, sage, spearmint and lemon balm oil.
Mejica – This is a perfect blend for those who love vanilla. Mejica contains a blend of three vanillas, spices and rare resins.
A Perfume Organic vegan and cruelty-free fragrances is also collaborating with sommelier, Katherine Marlowe, to release a new collection of fragrances called, “The Perfect Wine Trio.” The first release in the collection is appropriately called, “Rosé,” which contains notes of clove, nutmeg, berry, dark oaks, apples and other spices. All of their perfumes come in 12ml, roll-on, perfume bottles. They also have a sample pack, which features a small sample of each fragrance for under $25.
