For a while I have been changing over all my synthetic skin creams, make-up and perfumes to natural versions, with excellent results. Anita especially had rashes from commercial perfumes, which have now stopped since using natural oil-based ones.
Since my favourite natural perfume from For Strange Women has been discontinued (Sweet Androgyny - *cries*!), I have been ordering samples from all over the internet, looking for new favourites. This post is both for my own reference, as well as providing suggestions in case you are looking for natural alternatives ;)
Satin Corset by For Strange Women: One of her gorgeous solid perfumes set in jojoba and beeswax - floral blend, vanilla bourbon and tonka.
Bloody Kisses by Dawn To Dusk Essentials: OK, the name is a bit tacky, but what a fragrance! I actually received this one free with other samples, and did not expect to love it so much - it's a combination of Cardamom, Pink Lotus, Turkish Rose, Black Tea & Oud (in a base of sweet almond oil and coconut oil).
Fragoletta by Plume Natural Perfumery: Florals and clary sage on a base of oakmoss and labdanum.
Courage by One Seed Perfume: Seller from my hometown of Adelaide ... this is a blend of musky ylang ylang blossom, magnolia & rosewood and blends seamlessly with creamy vanilla, white jasmine & magnetic amber. This one is more expensive, but it is a far more sophisticated perfume - still natural, but with the feel of a commercial Eau de Parfum.
Graveyard Dirt by Flossie Fern: Patchouli, spikenard and rose - gorgeous combination, but needs to be reapplied more often.
I have a little bowl of samples that I still need to get through - I've promised myself I'll use them all before buying more perfume!!
Have you come across any natural perfumes recently?
