Dangers of Fragrance and the Best Clean Perfume Brands

Updated: Aug 14, 2022

Fragrance? What about it? 🙃

Fragrance is everywhere, it's in many beauty products like makeup, hair care, skin care and even cleaning products. We also have fragrance in our candles, room sprays and perfume. 🫣


But what is fragrance?


"Fragrance is defined by the FDA as a combination of chemicals that gives each perfume or cologne (including those used in other products) its distinct scent. Fragrance ingredients may be derived from petroleum or natural raw materials." - Safecosmetics.org


As clean beauty lovers we know the importance of using non-toxic beauty without the harmful chemicals! Unfortunately Fragrance listed as an ingredient can be a mixture of chemicals... sadly 3000 chemicals are used as Fragrances. ❌


When you really sit back and think about how many that is..Its crazy! Now picture living in a toxic household with makeup, skin care, hair care, candles, cleaning products, bath products and perfume all having the ingredient "Fragrance" listed. Now add up how many chemicals are around you.…See my point?😅

Frgrance chemicals, can pass from the skin and into the blood and cause many problems when absorbed! 👎 Exposure to fragrance chemicals can cause headaches; eye, nose, and throat irritation; nausea; forgetfulness; loss of coordination; and other respiratory and/or neurotoxic symptoms. Many fragrance ingredients are respiratory irritants and sensitizers, which can trigger asthma attacks and aggravate sinus conditions.“ Noharm- uscanada.org


Wait? What do I do now?!


Thankfully, there are so many amazing Non-Toxic products now without the "Fragrance" :)


You must be thinking what about perfume? How are you going to smell good all day without dumping yourself in chemicals?


Don't worry, I found the Best Clean Brands when it comes to Perfume!


Below I will share my favorite Clean Brands and give you a honest review of what I thought about their perfume. 👇


Without getting ahead of myself and spilling too much, I'm happy to announce I love each brand and their perfume! There are many different scent profiles perfect for everyone!


There are 5 Clean Perfume Brands I am going to share! I will find more in the future and make a part 2!


(In order of review - there is no rank)


CARTER AND JANE


They were the first brand I reviewed and they came to play! I was honestly so surprised because I've been disappointed in the past with "clean perfumes" smelling a little too earthy - not a bad thing but I was just looking for something a little more luxury and boy did I find it. Like I've said many times on my Instagram Carter and Jane is a luxury perfume hands down.


There is something about their body oils, perfumes and packaging that just makes you think it's too good to be true! Their brand is a true WIN for the Clean Beauty Community!

Their whole brand gives off a Clean Simple Beautiful Luxury Vibe and Aesthetic 🤍


They gifted me 5 Beautiful Clean Perfumes - Organic Aromas to try!

They Have many scent profiles like Beachy, Citrus, Floral, Gourmand, Wooded and Zen! I love when brands offer so many different scents to choose from!🙌


Also again you’ll hear me mention it a ton on the review video so please @carterandjane make them full size spray perfumes! I need these in my life! 😍🙌


They use all clean non toxic ingredients and no fragrance - *”Our roll-on aromas are made only with natural and organic oils; we do not add synthetic fragrance or alcohol to our formulas, which are typically used in traditional perfumes to assist in longevity and reduce product cost. Our aromas may not have the staying power as a traditional fragrance, but they are a beautiful, non-toxic alternative to traditional perfume, and are intended to be applied several times throughout the day for a happy pick-me-up.” @carterandjane


I first tried the Scent Beach House 🌊 -


Top notes: Coconut + Lemongrass + Bergamot

Middle notes: Vanilla + Grapefruit + Lavender

Base notes: Sandalwood + Rosewood + Rockrose


It literally transported me back to the Ocean! It was absolutely wonderful! The smell was out of this world! I didn’t know it could have that many scents in it and blend so well!😍


The 2nd scent - The Penthouse 🧖‍♀️ -


Top notes: Yuzu (bright citrus floral)

Middle notes: Pink Peppercorn + Vanilla (sweet spice)

Base notes: Amyris + Labdanum (sweet resin + woody musk)


It smelled like a spa and very similar to Angelic Clementine but looking back different in its own way! It smells so dreamy and I wouldn’t expect the essential oils to make this what it is! New to me 😍🙌

The 3rd Scent was - Sweet Cocoa 🍪 -


Top note: Cacao (Chocolate)

Middle and base notes: Vanilla


It smells like Hot Chocolate! 🍫 it is literally such a fun sweet smell! Like a whole chocolate chip cookie perfume - but not too sweet still elegant and clean ❤️


The 4th scent - Violet Narcissus 🎻


Top note: Violet

Middle notes: Violet + Narcissus

Base note: Narcissus


It’s a very sexy floral smell! It smells very out together and powerful! Perfect for a date night out or Lady Boss! Love this one ❤️


The Last Scent - Coffee House ☕️

Middle notes: Cacao + Tonka Bean (chocolate + leather tobacco)

Base note: Vanilla + Cedarwood + Ambrette (brown sugar + woodsy musk)


This one smelled just like a coffee shop! If smelled sweet and so fun! It was the perfect amount of sweet and not overpowering - I loved how flirty and young this scent smelled.
