While there seems to be an increase of options for vegan and vegetarian cosmetics, there seems to be less thought given to vegan fragrances. Dolma vegan perfumes and aftershaves promises products that are both vegan and cruelty-free.
Founder of Dolma vegan perfumes and aftershaves, Jim Payne, is a passionate vegan and qualified chemist. He began his journey towards creating his perfumes and aftershaves in 1982, and has since handed the business over to his daughter and other family members. He is still a strong advisor for product development, and the employees of the company are all vegan and vegetarians themselves, and have pledged a strong commitment to being cruelty-free.
Perhaps what stands out most about Dolma vegan perfumes and aftershaves is their own statement on what “cruelty-free” means to them, “We believe that to be truly ‘cruelty-free’ a product must not only be entirely free from animal testing but should not contain substances of animal origin.” They have proved this by developing a completely vegan musk perfume, containing synthetic musks infused with sandalwood.
Whether you are looking for a lighter Eau de Parfum, or a more concentrated Perfume, Dolma has both. Their line of 12 scents includes:
Amethyst Mist – a deep, rich floral scent
Calista – a floral bouquet
Keltina – a floral rose
Sarabande – a green and oriental
Sonata – a light, floral peach
Raga – a soft apple scent
Cushie B – a spicy citrus
If you are looking for a vegan aftershave cologne, Dolma has a line of four distinct aftershaves from which to choose! The fragrances are alcohol-based and perfect to splash on the face after a shave. Their aftershave cologne includes:
Freedom – a tropical scent
Kwame – a light and fruity scent
Imagine – a clean and cool scent
Sirius – a spicy scent
