With Valentine’s Day approaching, sustainable fragrances by A Perfume Organic.
For those who use them, a hint of store-bought fragrance adds romantic, come-hither appeal. Today, more perfume wearers opt for something made from more earth-friendly natural ingredients instead of toxic chemical cocktails. Some of the most easy on the body and the planet are the carefully crafted USDA certified-organic fragrances by Amanda Walker. Her small-batch, hand-poured botanical blends are free of harmful synthetic solvents, dyes, alcohol and pesticides. Plus, they’re PETA certified vegan and never tested on animals. And, as a surprise bonus, their recycled packages are embedded with seeds and can actually be planted—they sprout flowers. Our favorite scent: Mejica, a mix of vanilla, coconut, nutmeg and resins with unmistakable feminine notes.
$65; available at a number of online retailers and at aperfumeorganic.com.
