I’ve been on the hunt for my signature scent since I got first perfume in high school. Since then, I’ve switched over to clean beauty – all natural & non-toxic. Needless to say, it’s been more difficult to find the perfect scent. I researched countless natural perfume brands at different price points and started exploring their fragrances. In the process, I’ve found these 7 amazing natural perfume brands that you need to know and try. I’ve included my recommendations for each brand as well.
Website | http://florescent.co/
Brand Details | 100% Botanical because each scent is crafted from distillations and extractions of real flowers, herbs, woods, balsams, resins and seeds, cruelty-free & free of the synthetics, chemical additives, and fixatives
Price* | $79
Range of Scents | Sunday, Gâteaux & Pretty Bird
Product Selection | 15mL* perfumes, 5mL perfumes, & trial kits
My Recommendations | I would pick up the trial kit to experience each of the scents. But if I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Gâteaux. I love the orange blossom notes and the “herbaceous garden floral” as the website puts it.
Pour Le Monde
Website | http://www.pourlemondeparfums.com/index.html
Brand Details | The only certified 100% natural, fine fragrance company, certified vegan & cruelty-free by PETA, recognized by the Natural Products Association & each scent supports a different charity: Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Cancer Support Community and National MS Society
Price* | $82
Range of Scents | Empower, Together, Envision
Product Selection | 50mL perfumes* & sample packs
My Recommendations | I would also pick up the sample pack to experience each of the scents. But if I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Envision. I love the citrus top notes and the base of warm scents like vanilla and sandalwood.
Website | http://www.foragerbotanicals.com/
Brand Details | All natural, botanical essential oils (organic when possible), free from harmful synthetics, not tested on animals, vegan, handcrafted in Brooklyn & color, paraben, sulfate and preservative free
Price* | $98
Range of Scents | Nectar, Island Lei, Bloom, Woodland
Product Selection | 2 fl. oz (~59mL) perfumes*, 10 ml rollerballs & rollerball collections
My Recommendations | I would pick up their rollerball collection although it’s pricey and share the cost with friends and family to experience each of the scents. Everyone can pick the one they like the most and stay with it. If I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Woodland. I love the cedarwood and lavender notes because it’s unisex and I’m drawn to less feminine fragrances.

Product Selection | 1.7 fl. oz (50mL) perfumes*, 5mL roll-on perfumes & sample trial packs
My Recommendations | I would pick up their sample trial pack to experience each of the scents. But if I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Leila Lou. I love the pear and jasmine notes mixed with the scent of fresh cut grass. It would be the perfect every day scent.

Product Selection | 30mL perfumes* & 6mL perfume oils*
My Recommendations | They don’t have samples on their website, but maybe other luxury natural beauty sites might offer them. If I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick BS 003 in perfume oil. I like the mix of crisp citrus notes and Bergamot to round out and sweeten the scent.

Product Selection | 50mL perfumes*, 10mL perfumes & samples
My Recommendations | They have perfume samples at Twisted Lily [here] and I would pick up one for each scent to try them out. But if I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Voyage. I know it’s limited edition but I love the citrus & vanilla mix, so sultry!

My Recommendations | They have so many perfume samples on their website and I would pick up a few to try them out. Although, it’s much easier to go into their store in Providence to try out all the scents or make your own at their custom perfume bar! If I had to pick one to buy full-size, I would pick Osmanthus Oolong. It’s definitely not a traditional scent but I love the jasmine notes mixed in with the tea and citrus blossom notes.
