Periodically I crave to wear natural perfumes. It’s like changing the radio station to a different genre of music—not necessarily better or worse than synthetics or mixed media perfumes, but a different character altogether. (There’s a lot of hyperbole out there that would have you believe that “natural” is a superior moral position over “synthetic”; in perfumery, however, the truth is much more complicated.) It’s like choosing a watercolor painting instead of a photograph—it’s simply a different experience.
Maybe it’s the summer heat, but lately I’ve been craving naturals more and more! These are some of my favorites from Jolie Laide, J Hannah Co, Aftelier Perfumes (I’m especially loving Mandy’s solid perfumes!), and Laromatica Perfume.
I’m always looking for more to try—what are your favorite natural perfumes?
