Health & Beauty: Although the smells of perfumes conjure up fields of flowers and orchards of fruit, many perfumes get their sweet scents from chemicals formulated in labs. A Perfume Organic from master perfumer Amanda Walker seeks to bring nature back into the bottle.
A long time ago, all perfumes were organic and Amanda goes back to the roots of perfumery by using actual flowers and herbs in her collection. With a background in perfumes and interest in sustainability, A Perfume Organic eliminates the cetone, petroleum, and phthalates chemicals that have been linked to health hazards from migraines to cancer.
The perfumes are hand-poured in small batches and certified as animal-friendly by PETA and as officially organic by the USDA.
To reduce wasteful packaging, each small fragrance bottle is enclosed in a beautifully illustrated (and recyclable) flower seed-embedded box that can be planted after use.
