Perfume is a beauty product that could be called a necessary luxury. We like to use it every day because it makes us feel luxurious and beautiful, and it’s amazing how the smell of a perfume can bring back memories and make us smile. We’ve reviewed the 10 best organic perfume brands to help you find your new signature scent.

The benefits of organic perfume are not limited to being softer on your skin than synthetic perfumes; they often smell nicer too. Natural scents are gentle and don’t have the underlying chemical smell that many synthetic perfumes do.

Organic perfumes are not tested on animals, which is a benefit for many who are concerned about the impact on our environment.

Organic Perfume FAQ’s

 1) What are organic perfumes?

Organic perfumes are those that contain plant-based, 100% naturally sourced ingredients. The ingredients are extracted naturally, without chemical intervention. Although there are many products out there that claim they are organic, an organic perfume must contain 80% certified organic ingredients.Organic perfumes contain natural plant or essential oils, distilled water, and natural alcohol. This an alcohol is made from grapes, sugar cane, wheat, or corn.

 2) What does organic perfume do?

Aside from making us feel glamorous, perfume also triggers natural hormones called pheromones. These are said to increase sexual desire, not in the wearer but in those in the immediate vicinity. Even women who don’t wear perfume every day will when going out on a date.

An organic perfume is also a tool for calming the senses and taking the wearer to somewhere pleasant in their mind. In other words, perfume makes us happy.

 3) How does organic perfume work?

The alcohol in perfumes allows the individual scents of the oils and ingredients to come through. A good perfume has three components, or notes, to it. The first, or top, note is the scent that you first smell when the perfume hits your skin but that usually disappears after 15 minutes as it evaporates.

The second scent, or heart note, is what you smell after you’ve been wearing the perfume for three to four hours. These are usually flowery scents and are the ones that remind you of someone you love, or the ones you remember when describing the perfume to someone else.

The third scent, or base note, is the one that never seems to evaporate from your skin. It’s often woody or musky scents, and although it appears after five to eight hours of wear, it often seems to stick to your skin for days.

 4) Where can you buy organic perfume?

As organic perfumes become more popular, they become easier to find. Amazon carries many products that claim they are organic, but our advice is to be careful who you’re buying from and stick to well-known brands. Other online stores include Ayala Moriel Parfums, Miessence Certified Organics, and one of the many lavender farms that sell perfume online.

You can also buy organic perfume from physical stores. Fair Trade shops carry them along with other beauty products, and so do organic food stores. Many perfume shops carry organic perfumes, but we advise that you double check the ingredients and how the product was made.

 5) What is the price range of organic perfumes?

There’s a common perception that organic perfumes cost more than synthetic scents, but that’s not necessarily the case. The factors that make a perfume expensive are usually how many ingredients are in the bottle rather than where the ingredients come from.

A perfume that costs $9.95 is probably not going to linger on your skin for as long as a $199.00 scent. This is because the cheaper perfumes are one notes, and the more expensive are usually three notes. Chanel No 5 is a one-note exception to the rule, costing $145.59 for 3.4 ounces.
