Did you know that not all perfumes are vegan? Some fragrances contain animal products in the formula, while others have been tested on animals. We all want to smell good, so why not smell great without hurting the environment and all the precious creatures that live in it?

Here are a few big brands that sell entirely vegan perfumes.
1. Stella McCartney
Renowned for their vegan leather and commitment to the environment, Stella McCartney fragrances are all vegan and cruelty-free.
The brand has several fragrances on the market, including Pop, Pop Bluebelle, and The Stella by Stella McCartney Eau de Toilette. The Pop perfume has a woody, floral scent with notes of green mandarin and tomato leaf. It’s recognizable but not overpowering.
Everyone knows lush makes the best bath bombs but did you know they also sell a variety of eco-conscious perfumes?
Whether you’re looking for something soft and smokey or prefer a scent that’s more earthy and spicy, Lush has got you covered. All the fragrances are made from high-quality essential oils and absolutes, which means you don’t need very much to smell fantastic all day long.
3. Ouai Fragrances
While Ouai is not a vegan brand, all of its fragrances are!
The Ouai de Parfum is made up of five unique scents inspired by Fashion cities across the globe, including Los Angeles and Paris. Jen Atkin, celebrity hairstylist and Ouai founder, was instrumental in designing these five perfumes with a traditional French perfumer.
Pacifica is an affordable brand that makes cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics, so it only makes sense that they’ve extended their line with fragrances.
Along with classic body perfumes, Pacifica also sells hair perfume and scented mists and oils. That means you can make every inch of you smell incredible. There are a plethora of scent notes to choose from including floral, herbal, and gourmand. They also have solid perfume options if you’re an avid traveler and hate lugging around a plastic bag of liquids through security.
Aesop is a skincare and cosmetic brand that produces several richly-scented fragrances.
The entire brand is vegan and cruelty-free, and their perfumes are no exception. Each perfume doesn’t just come with a list of notes; they’ve been designed to emote deep feelings and paint a delicate but colorful picture. Their fragrances are for adults looking for an olfactory experience.
6. Billie Eilish Fragrances
Yes, we said Billie Eilish!
Eilish has been a vegan for several years, so it only makes sense her perfume is, too! “I wanted it to feel like a warm embrace. It’s a scent that I’ve been chasing for years and years and years. It’s my favorite smell in the world,” said the pop star about her new scent. It has musky base notes with top notes of juicy mandarin, sugared petals, and red berries.
Trying to shop for cosmetics while staying vegan can be a challenge sometimes. Brands are never going to advertise that they aren’t vegan or cruelty-free, but there are lots of brands that proudly commercialize they are. Before purchasing, always look for a PETA-approved, Leaping Bunny or vegan sticker on a product!
