According to the Environmental Working Group, an average of 14 chemicals secretly lurk in common fragrances; some of which have been linked to hormone disruption and allergic reactions while others have not even been assessed for safety in personal care products.
Thankfully, there are natural options that smell delicious and feel good on your skin.
Natural Fall Fragrances We Love
ZENTS products are a sensual choice that feature the purest ingredients like organic shea butter and nourishing botanicals like chamomile and green tea. Each product is carefully crafted without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl/eth sulfate, propylene glycol, or dyes.
We especially love the fall Ore and Earth scents. Crafted with love, each scent represents a liquid memory of a cherished moment. The fragrances bridge the powerful connection between scent and memory, especially Ore, which we wore for years and still reminds us of great gatherings and fun nights out on the town.
Objects with Purpose Wearable Candles
Objects with Purpose offers an array of great smelling candles made with organic coconut wax that you can both wear and burn.
Their candles are a solid perfume that works as both a personal scent and a delightful candle. What a cool idea!
Pacifica Perfume Roll Ons
Pacifica offers an intoxicating aura of scents, featuring elements of whimsical magic that is captured in their natural roll-on scents.
Wearers love the light, yet commanding quality of each fragrance with stand-out combos such as Indian Coconut Nectar and Tuscan Blood Orange. Each scent is 100% Vegan and cruelty-free and reflects their vision to reduce environmental impact.
Dasein makes our absolute favorite natural fragrances. Their unisex scents are so delectable and beautiful that it is hard to even describe them. We especially love Winter Nights, which boasts the most unique layers of aromas including coastal forrest, cardamom and a subtle musk that it makes you feel beyond sexy as soon as you put it on.
It’s like something James Bond would wear when he was the Sean Connery James Bond. However, these days it is rather difficult to get your hands on a bottle. To keep in the know, follow Dasein Instagram and click the link to fill out a form to get notified when the next batch drops!
Make Your Own Natural Fall Fragrance!
It’s easy to create your own custom scent for fall. Start with a great carrier oil like jojoba or avocado and a custom bottle to use to make and store your scent. The essential oils should make up about 5% of your finished fragrance, so use your drops sparingly.
We love to use the empty roll on and spray bottle options from Aura Cacia and fill it with a carrier oil. Then, simply add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to the carrier oil to make your scent, keeping the 5% rule in mind. For fall we can’t get enough of essential oil scents like Cinnamon, Vanilla, Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Geranium. Keep in mind that some oils have a stronger scent than others and it may take you a few attempts to get the right fragrance combo.
To get inspired, think of the scents you love from nature and work from there! Make sure to be careful handling full strength essential oils as they can burn the skin. Also, check with your doctor if you are concerned about possible skin irritation from handling essential oils. If that is the case, perhaps you want to stick with buying an already made and fabulous natural blend.
Regardless, you are sure to find a natural scent that you will love!
