Vegan Perfume

Finding a really good vegan perfume is getting a bit easier nowadays.
However, finding a vegan AND cruelty free perfume is a lot more difficult.

The main part of the price you pay for the highly advertised perfumes is, er, advertising!

So it doesn’t take much imagination to realise that the cost to actually make it, is a lot less. Makes you wonder what you are actually paying for!

Mainstream perfumes don’t use natural ingredients simply because these ingredients are way too expensive and don’t make their business model viable (profitability) and also, these ingredients are just not available in the quantities required.

Synthetic perfume costs comparatively little to make and most of the cost goes towards paying for the glossy celebrity adverts.

Natural perfumes are made using only natural ingredients such as absolutes, essential oils and resins. Mainstream perfumes use synthetic materials made by chemical processes as these are cheaper and can be mass produced.

In natural perfumery the main costs are down to the ingredients, which can be as high as £20,000/Kg in the case of Tuberose Absolute or Bulgarian Rose Otto.

Natural perfumeries tend to be much smaller as natural ingredients are not available in industrial quantities. They are normally headed by a perfumer who creates the scents in-house. 

All beauty products sold in the EU must be assessed for safety. This is to ensure that they do not contain harmful ingredients or allergens in high concentrations.

Walden Natural Perfumes, like all perfumes sold in the UK, have all undergone safety assessment. The levels deemed safe for perfume ingredients is set by IFRA (LINK) after testing and research.

Walden Perfumes

This specialist perfume house is a tribute to the glory days of real perfumery and they lovingly make beautiful natural alternatives to the mass-produced fragrances made in factories using synthetic ingredients,

Walden Perfumes is proudly made by hand in small batches from natural ingredients of the finest quality.

They have a select range of perfumes which you just have to get to know.

All these beautiful fragrances are available in;

  • Traditional Eau de Parfum 50ml bottle
  • Handy Eau de Parfum 15ml purse spray
  • Tempting Eau de Parfum 5ml sample
  • Sensuous Perfume Oil 10ml

It’s interesting to note that everybody is unique when it comes to the individual characteristics of the smell of a given fragrance. So you may smell slightly different to your friend for the same fragrance.

It gets even more interesting when you find that you can smell different when you apply an Eau de Parfum to when you apply a Perfume Oil.

It’s a testament to the unique skill of the master perfumer. Walden Perfume’s Stephan Bisse has always been fascinated by scent and was the co-founder of Perfuma.com in 1998, the first perfume website in the UK.

After getting tired of the increasingly similar, synthetic perfumes on offer he decided to learn the art of natural perfumery and create perfumes the way they are meant to be – handmade in small batches from the finest natural ingredients.

Walden perfumes are never tested on animals and do not contain any ingredients derived from animals.

Walden Natural Perfumes supports the 6 cornerstone values of the Real Beauty Manifesto which include compassion, honesty, purity, community, transparency and sustainability.

Walden Perfumes Fragrances

A Different Drummer

A Different Drummer opens with a rich blast of Tobacco followed by peppery Cedarwood and Patchouli to finish with creamy hints of Amyris, Vanilla and Tonka Bean.

Reviews
“…it starts with a blast of pepper and is followed by a creamy and warm blend of Amber and Cedarwood. This scent was the one that changed the most with my own body chemistry and just like the Solid Earth I felt it is a lovely unisex option. “

A Gentle Rain

A Gentle Rain is a luxurious fragrance that grows with a blend of oak moss, labdanum and patchouli. The heat that follows is composed of bergamot, smooth orris, sandalwood and timeless rose de mai. With base notes of vetiver, lavender green and clary sage.

A Little Star Dust

A Little Star-Dust is a sumptuous bouquet of Ylang Ylang, Iris and Jasmine enriched with hints of creamy Amyris and exotic Tonka Bean.

Reviews
“A Little Stardust is my personal favourite from the range. It is a floral scent, soft but with some depth to it. The blend contains Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Iris as well as Tonka bean and Amyris which gives it  sweet note at the end. It’s easy to wear day or night and is simply lovely. ” – Ana 

Castles In The Air

Castles in the Air is a fresh, intoxicating blend of Citrus with a hint of tropical flowers and lavender.

Reviews

“A quick spritz on the wrists releases an immediate fresh and Spring-like scent with key notes of Bergamot, Lemon, and Mandarin, on a calming base of Lavender and Rosemary. Castles In The Air has such a relaxing effect on my mind and helps to put me in a good mood for rest of the day which is probably why I love it so much! ” – Evelyn 

Live The Life

This gem of a perfume successfully combines the refreshing top notes of Bergamot and Orange with middle notes of Tuberose and Sweet violet, not forgetting the exotic base notes of Sandalwood, Brazilian rosewood and China jasmine to create a fresh yet beguiling scent reminiscent of a magical midsummer stroll through a wild flower meadow.

See The Moonlight
See the Moonlight is an intoxicating Chypre fragrance that opens with fresh Bergamot followed by a heart of Jasmine and hints of Rose.  The finish is luxurious Sandalwood and exotic Ambrette Seed.

The Solid Earth

The Solid Earth opens fresh with bracing Petitgrain followed by a heart of Light Patchouli Oil and Black Pepper to finish off with creamy Vetiver and Amyris.

Reviews
“It starts off as a rich, woody scent. I love that it is not what society might consider a traditionally feminine aroma, but I did worry if it was perhaps too sharp. However, the scent soon settles into a smooth, earthy lightness, with hints of refreshing citrus coming through.” – Nadia 

Tonic Of Wildness

Let this wonderful mysterious and unfathomable unisex perfume take you on an olfactory journey starting off with the fresh, light heartedness of Bergamot, Grapefruit and Sour Orange moving to the woody middle notes of Black Pepper, Cardamom and Cabreuva towards the mysterious and sultry base notes of Iris Pallida and Ylang Ylang.

Two Eternities

Two Eternities is a garland of Wild Roses, Jasmine and Iris floating above a fresh Citrus base of Mandarin, Bergamot and Sweet Orange.

Reviews
“The perfume opens with bright, zesty and sweet notes before becoming deeply floral with sensual jasmine, rose and iris. Citrus notes appear again in the base notes. I absolutely love the scent…” – Sandra
