Veganuary for January
To start off the new year with a sustainable outlook many people are participating in Veganuary. So this month we wanted to share some of the vegan fragrances and beauty products we have here at Scentstore, to help you find products that have vegan formulations and use natural plant-based ingredients.
Paco Rabanne FAME Eau de Parfum
Fame is a new fragrance that was introduced in 2022 that aims to encapsulate the style of its own fashion brand Paco Rabanne.
With an opening of mango, a heart note of jasmine and a base of incense this perfume is extremely versatile. Such a warm base helps this fragrance to keep you cosy in the chilly winter and autumn months, transporting you to the town of Grasse where it was made on the south coast of France.
The sweet white floral top and middle make it perfect for the warmer spring and summer months, keeping the fragrance light and luxurious, in keeping with the aesthetic of the Parisian perfume Maison brought to you by the designer fashion brand.
The perfume is made with ingredients of 90% natural origin and has a Vegan formulation.
Available in 30ml, 50ml & 80ml
Vicktor & Rolf Good Fortune Eau de Parfum
Good Fortune is a spiritual fragrance that exudes positivity and embraces the brand’s eco-centric goals.
The opening of the perfume is a combination of fennel and gentian which evolves to a heart note of jasmine, the centrepiece of the fragrance. Finally, the scent brings through the base note of bourbon vanilla.
As a whole, this perfume is designed to help the wearer become the best version of themselves through a process of self-personalisation.
The formula of Good Fortune is free of any animal-derived products and is therefore also vegan. The bottle is made of 15% recycled glass and is refillable.
Available in 30ml, 50ml & 90ml
Versace Eros Eau de Parfum
Eros is one of Versace’s flagship men’s scents. An instantly recognisable fresh yet woody fragrance named after the Greek god of love.
The prominent top notes of this fragrance are lemon and mint oil and at the heart geranium flower and clary sage can be found. This then dries down to reveal cedarwood, sandalwood and vanilla notes in the base.
Versace states that Eros aligns with vegan principles and therefore “does not contain any intentionally added animal or animal-derived products”.
Available in 50ml, 100ml & 200ml
Issey Miyake L’eau D’Issey Eau & Cedre Eau de Toilette Intense
To mark the 30-year anniversary of Issey Miyake’s original L’eau D’issey, the perfume maison has brought out a fragrance inspired by the liquid nature of the world while considering the strength of wood.
The top note of this scent is cardamom which quickly leads the fragrance towards the centerpiece of cedarwood. Vetiver and patchouli can both be found in the base of the fragrance.
Such a fresh scent with woody notes like this are few and far between making it ideal for wearing all year round and a great choice for a signature fragrance.
Eau & Cedre also has a vegan formula and is made from 91% naturally derived ingredients.
Available in 50ml & 100ml
Calvin Klein CK Everyone Eau de Toilette
A genderless scent that grows from the iconic CK One, CK Everyone is an extremely clean, fresh fragrance.
With top notes of organic orange essential oil and ginger, this fragrance opens citrusy and slightly spicy. It then transitions through heart notes of blue tea accord and watery notes into a woody base of amber, cedarwood and patchouli.
This fragrance manages to stay neutral, not too floral as to lean towards a traditionally feminine scent or musky as many men’s fragrances tend to be.
The alcohol in this perfume is naturally derived, as are the ingredient. It is also vegan as none of the ingredients are derived from animals or animal by-products. On top of this, the bottle itself can be recycled after removing the pump.
Available in 100ml & 200ml
OPI Nature Strong
OPI have an entire range of nail lacquers that have been awarded a seal of approval from the Vegan Society. There are over 30 different shades within the range.
The lacquer is made from ingredients that are derived from sugar cane, manioc, wheat, potatoes, corn, and clay. All of the products in the range are made in a separate factory to prevent any chance of contamination. They can be removed as normal with acetone and non-acetone nail polish remover.
The glass bottles and plastic lids are made from 20% recycled materials.
These are just a few of many products that can give you a boost to start a sustainable 2023. To find more, type ‘vegan’ into the search bar on our website or visit us in-store to learn more about the changes happening in the perfume industry that are making fragrances more ethical.
