Who doesn’t feel like having something sweet when the weather turns cold? If this goes for you too, you might like By Rosie Jane’s “Dulce Eau De Parfum”.
As the name suggests, this fragrance is sweet and comforting, thanks to its vanilla, hinoki wood, and nude musk notes. Inspired by good times with its hints of chocolate, this fragrance is ideal for wearing while making fun winter memories.
Dulce Eau De Parfum is certified vegan, and By Rosie Jane is Leaping Bunny certified. All the company’s fragrances come in FSC-certified packaging and are mixed, hand-poured, and formulated in Glendale, Los Angeles, California.
If you are looking for a fragrance that is sweet, without being overpowering and has lots of depth, texture, and richness, then check out “White Fig & Bourbon” by the Clean Beauty Collective. This phthalate-free fragrance is a play of opposites with a Mediterranean feel thanks to its spicy notes of black pepper and red tea, woody papyrus and cedarwood, sweet magnolia blossom, white fig, and dried fruits with citrusy Italian bergamot.
Can perfume make you feel proud, adventurous, and unapologetic? The fragrance “Spice of Life” by the New York-based and Latina-owned fragrance brand Harlem Botanica has accomplished just that. With its spicy and fresh red ginger, sweet and spicy cardamom and nutmeg, and the green notes of green clary sage blended in an organic cane alcohol base, this fragrance has all the right ingredients for the colder months.
Harlem Botanica’s organic perfumes are safe even for those with synthetic sensitivities, as founder Julissa Jose created her very own fragrance line after developing a severe allergy that made it impossible to wear commercial perfumes.
Harlem Botanica perfumes are handmade, Leaping Bunny certified, and free from animal by-products, artificial dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, propylene glycol, and synthetic alcohol.
Inspired by the Spanish dance of the bolero and the rose, “Rosa De Bolero” by Wit & West Perfumes is a rich and elegant scent fragrance that is perfect for winter. The mix of sultry saffron and pink peppercorn, sophisticated rose absolute and osmanthus, creamy sandalwood, and earthy frankincense and patchouli make this fragrance a layered, unique one. Wit and West was founded by Colorado-based couple Wit and West, who operate it themselves.
Their artisanal, small-batch fragrances handcrafted in Colorado are cruelty-free certified by Leaping Bunny, vegan, and free from phthalate and paraben. Even the alcohol base in their perfumes is not just any alcohol base. Instead, it’s made with a three-stage filtered USDA organic grape alcohol from organic certified wines and grape varietals.
