Cruelty Free Perfume and the perfect Christmas Gift

Cruelty Free Perfume and the perfect Christmas Gift

It is coming to that time of year again when we are all hunting for that perfect Christmas gift and of course perfume is always a good idea. However  if your loved ones follow a vegan lifestyle or are totally against testing on animals it isn’t always that easy to find the right product.  There are of course lots of online shops that sell cruelty free perfume but if you are buying on line I find that you are relying on a description of the product and you are not really sure of the smell and whether your loved one would like it.

I have found that the perfumes are described as musky, sweet, fruity and even floral but I’m not sure what that really means and unless you are experienced in this field I don’t think you will know either. With this in mind I began thinking a way around this and after some internet browsing I found that there is a lovely opportunity for you to buy a day of perfume making which is almost like one of the red letter days where you go along an experience making your own fragrance which is cruelty free.

Design your own Cruelty Free Perfume.

I found that the day was a superb experience and gave me the opportunity to try out lots of beautiful fragrances and how blending them creates unique aromas.  The session educated me in learning the different sources of fragrance and how they blend together. I learned about the different fragrances which were placed on a fragrance wheel which reminded me of the the colour wheel in art. Altogether I must have been introduced to almost 20 different sources of smell which I could mix together as I wished and the tutor helped me with understanding the potency of some smells and the ratios needed to bring the fragrance to life.

I was able to be creative and mix my own ingredients until I found a perfume that was exactly to my desired aroma and it was great to realise that no one else would have this fragrance it was mine. What is nice is that when you have settled on your final fragrance then you are allowed to take the formula you have created home with you so you know exactly what you have used and are able to recreate it in future. They also make up a bottle of the perfume to take home with you.

Whether you are looking for a fragrance for male or female then it is all included in the day and it is totally up to you what you settle on. You will find a smell that is just perfect for you and you’ll also have gained a knowledge about all the smells that are available in cruelty free perfume.
