We pride ourselves on our completely natural fragrances with transparent ingredient lists, and unlike most other brands who claim to make natural fragrances, our perfumes are 100% essential oil based and contain no extra additives to extend the wear time of the ingredients. This means that the amount of time the scent of the perfume stays on your skin depends on the ingredients in each of the individual fragrances.
All of our perfumes are well-concentrated (a traditional eau de parfum ratio,) but the scents with strong base note ingredients will stay on your skin longer, where as our lighter fragrances will dissipate quickly, which really just means you get the pleasure of applying more regularly!
We love offering a wide range of fragrances to suit every preference, and don’t believe that wear time is an indicator of quality. (That’s actually an idea that was introduced way back when perfumers first started working with artificial fragrances as a way to make their cheap un-natural ingredients seem more enticing to their discerning customers!) #themoreyouknow
The amount of time that a scent lingers on your skin is dependent on many different factors - an individual’s unique body chemistry, the temperature and humidity levels in the air, how well moisturized your skin is, (which, ahem, is why we make matching body oils for each scent!) and your own perception - no two noses smell alike and some are waaaayyyyy more sensitive than others!
However, as a general guide, here’s a good place to start:
If you want your scent to last all day go for:
If you don’t want it to disappear too quickly but don’t mind re-applying in the later in the day (or want to change scents from day to night) go for:
If you don’t care how long it lasts (or just love taking a #selfcare moment to re-apply during the day) go for:
*very related side note these are literally our most popular fragrances so take from that what you will…
Tips to extend the wear time of your favorite natural scent:
Layer layer layer - we offer matching body care items for each of our signature fragrances because the other products that you wear should only add and never detract from your favorite scent!
Get the set - When buying one of our organic alcohol based spray perfumes we offer the option to add the matching oil based roll on for an extra $10. We recommend spraying the perfume on your clothing and in your hair while applying the roll on to your pulse points for a double whammy of plant based goodness.
Stay hydrated - fragrance disappears more quickly on dry skin. Hydrate from the inside out by drinking good old fashioned water, (also great for the face) and layer the matching body oil (or a complimentary scented body butter) to keep your skin supple, moisturized, and smelling great.
Get a second opinion - your own nose gets used to the way you smell super quick. So many times we go out in public thinking we can’t smell our fragrance any more only to be complimented on how great we smell! Don’t assume the perfume is faulty just because you don’t know your own greatness. Our motto is that subtle is always better than choking strangers in an elevator. Okay, it’s an un-official motto… but you get the drift, right??
