Growing up, I was a major perfume fan. It’s something my grandmother and I bonded over and I loved how grown up and feminine I felt using them, even as a little girl. But as I’ve grown into an adult and have learned about the chemicals added to most, I’ve become a lot more wary of using them. Instead of spraying fragrance directly onto my skin like I use to, I spray it on my clothes and more importantly, I’m now stocking my fragrance tray with these clean, safe options—which smell just as good if not better!
Here are some of the best clean fragrance brands:
Created by the Gwyneth with all natural elements and no toxins, with the promise that some of the ingredients even help heal. I’m currently using this one and am obsesssed.
Fragrances made with traditional methods used by original perfumers pre-WWII (after WWII is when chemicals were added). All fragrances are crafted in small batches out of plant and flower extracts. The lavender sounds especially beautiful.
These are made from essential oils and concentrated to last. Only natural and eco-friendly products are used and absolutely no animal products or testing from start to finish.
Made locally in Vermont from herbs produced on a family-run farm, so how sweet is that? This truly is an Earth-to-consumer product made of high quality organic material. And new goal: to live on a farm that makes incredible clean scents like this.
Pacifica is an earth-conscious brand and leading company in the natural beauty space in general. Their perfumes are 100% vegan and cruelty free. The Persian Rose scent is a winner!
Acorelle sources natural products from France and creates the ideal combination of organic ingredients and fine, quality cosmetics. Chic and clean at its finest!
Sophia Fragrance Oil
Each bottle is made with 100% pure fragrance oil and no alcohol to make sure all products are natural and wholesome.
S.W. Basics is an excellent clean beauty line who recently launched organic, made-safe fragrances. They’re essential oil based and are all diluted in organic sunflower oil, rendering them super gentle and perfect for applying directly on the skin and they smell amazzzzing. My personal favorite is the Lemongrass.
Do you have any other clean fragrances that I need to try?
I’ve never really considered celebrity brands before, but goop sounds really good!

You should check out Lurk! Beautiful packaging and wonderful scents.
Awesome list! Thanks for sharing.
I love the Pacifica ones, I’ve tried a few different scents and they are all good. I love the fact that their line does not give me a raging headache like conventional perfumes.
I also have the goop one too, and although it does not give me headaches, it stinks! I bought the candle version first to make sure I would like the scent before committing to the perfume. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the candle smelled nice, but the perfume is horrible. I’ve tried to give it away to everyone I know, and no one will take it. I’ve resorted to using it as a room spray (very lightly)!
I love pacifica scents, but I’ll have to check out some of the other brands! Thanks for sharing!
Goop huh? Is it inspired by her blog? It sounds pretty interesting though, I will give it a try <3
I love goop scents !

Rose scents are my favorite so I must check out Pacifica!
I love this brands fragrances
Yes, you have to try Ojai Wild. It’s a collection of natural fragrances made from native California botanicals, resins, woods and roots, by an artisan perfumer from Ojai.
Hi Geri! I also have to second Ojai Wild – I discovered her line at Indie Beauty Expo in LA and it’s amazing! I also love Los Feliz Botanicals (which we carry in our store), and Filigree Parfums, handmade in Seattle, the founder has created a huge collection of scents, at least 40 of them, all 100% natural and vegan.
I absolutely adore Pour le Monde’s perfumes! I originally purchased Envision and loved it so much that I went back and purchased Together as well. I would definitely recommend trying their perfumes!
