Going organic with my beauty and health meant really eliminating so many things I enjoyed. Perfume being one of them. I sadly set aside my array of commercial perfume and went on a hunt for something safer that lacked phthalates and synthetic fragrances. While at the gym reading a magazine I stumbled on an obscure article in a magazine that mentioned an organic perfume called Red Flower perfume oil.
These perfumes are created with a pure flower and herb distillation using USDA Certified Organic oils. I always knew that oil based perfume vs. alcohol based perfumes were more pure and long lasting due to the slower evaporation, but since using Red Flower I do believe they work a whole lot better.
Red Flower organic perfume oils come in 3 beautiful scents: Champa (the one I like) has a floral feminine scent without smelling too much like a big flowery mess. It’s subtle and girly… I get compliments on it often. They also have Ambrette, more of am amber, golden warm scent and Guaiac, which is a little bit earthy, woody but with a pretty feminie side. Really lovely scents.
Get It: Red Flower oils come in a small 1-ish ounce glass roll on with a stainless steel roller ball for $48, or in a larger elegant crystal cut vintage bottle and stoppe, made in france for $186 – all available on their website RedFlower.com. Red Flower also carries hair care, candles and body care items … all that I am dying to try out. They all look like elegant indulgences!
