5 Work-Safe (and VEGAN!) Cologne for Men

It has been a while since I’ve posted, but I figured now that I am writing again to dedicate this post to men (and all thanks to my boyfriend who suggested this post!).

When it comes to fragrances, it is always best to choose scents that subtle for the workplace. These scents should have a balance of citrus and musks that deliver an aura of power. Below are 5 vegan scents for men that are work-friendly.

Happy shopping!

6 VEGAN Perfumes for Valentine

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it is not too late to grab these perfumes (or perfumes like these) to spice up your date. When picking your fragrance look for scents that are warm and have rich floral scents to them. 

All scents listed are vegan-friendly. 

Here are some scents to look out for:

one-seed-perfume

 

A heartbeat of voluptuous ylang ylang blossom, magnolia & rosewood blends seamlessly with creamy vanilla, ethereal jasmine & musky amber. Courage is for integrity, for quiet strength, for inner beauty and integrity.

Buy: One Seed Perfume Courage $65

 

 

my-daughter-perfume

 

Turkish Rose Absolute and Bulgarian Rose Oil cast an intoxicating spell; Cocoa Absolute and elements of Vetiver, Patchouli, Cedar, and Coffee adding a sense of earthiness, of permanence, a promise of forever.

Buy: My Daughter Perfume Always Loved $85

 

 

 

lush-lust-perfume

 

 

It’s virtually unheard of for a perfume to be this sexy. Lust is a heady mash-up of rich florals and a warm, woody base that lasts on the skin for hours and hours. It’s a multi-layered fragrance made up of jasmine, ylang ylang, rose, vanilla and sandalwood making it (and you, by association) unabashedly sexy. Resistance is futile.

Buy: Lush Lust Perfume $43

 

 

harvey-prince-perfume

 

Notes of fresh Italian bergamot, sensual Cypress oil, and sweet pink grapefruit softly drifted into the balmy Venetian air. Lush lily, dewy jasmine, elegant cyclamen, and deep blond woods danced with warm vanilla, earthy patchouli, smoky vetiver, spicy tonka bean, soothing sandalwood, and clean musk as D’Amore gently unfolded its many fragrant layers.

Buy: Harvey Prince D’Amore $30

 

 

a-perfume-organic

The first release – Rosé – Fresh berry, crisp apple, dark oaks, and rich spices blend beautifully. Like the first sip from a chilled glass of Rosé, intrigue is imparted with hints of clove and nutmeg, warming into a peppery finish.

Buy: A Perfume Organic Rose $65

she-belongs-there-olivine

 

It’s your life. You belong there.  And the warm, sexy tangle of gardenias, pikake, night-blooming jasmine and lush, smoky vanilla will remind you and keep you grounded in that knowledge.

Buy: Olivine She Belongs There $80

 

 

 

5 Cruelty-Free & Vegan Dupes for Top Perfumes

Perfumes are, in my opinion, underappreciated.  I believe every woman should have a selection of fragrances to express herself whenever and wherever. But with that said, many commercial perfumes have strange chemicals floating in their bottles. Why spray yourself with faux scents when you can get the real thing with natural fragrances?

So I took some of the most popular perfumes out there and found their natural match. Of course, these matches are not 100% but they are 100% better for you.

5. Le Labo in Vetiver 46 ($70-$240)

The Rolls Royce of Vetivers, nurtured in Haiti and retired to Grasse in accord with local know-how, is the pillar of this perfume that, without a doubt, is the most masculine of all Le Labo creations! Among the 46 essences that make it up, all have the distinctive “male” scent: pepper, garlic, labdanum, cedar¦ Each expresses strength of character in its own way, and the delicate accompaniment of olibanum, a mysterious incense, leaves an intriguing spiritual dimension in its wake.
