Are your perfumes all-natural?
2020 Hope is our first all-natural fragrance and just like all of our other scents, it is free from parabens, phthalates, and dyes. Our flagship collection and Scents for Gents are not all natural, but they are vegan and organic based and still more natural than most mainstream fragrances. We believe in the variety that materials composed in a lab can offer us, and that animals should never be harmed in their making. To that end, we abstain from materials derived from animal sources, do not participate in animal testing, and do not purchase materials from companies who do. We are so committed that we have earned the right to proudly display the Vegan Action Certified Logo and are members of the Vegan Trade Council.
What is the difference between your perfume formats and how long they last on your skin?
We dilute our products at a much lower rate than the rest of the mainstream industry, meaning our formats pack a smelly punch. Here is an estimated guess as to what you can expect from each (and we've been at this awhile, so you can assume our guesses are gold):
|Perfume Oils (roller ball)||Fractionated Coconut Oil||40%||6-8 hours|
|Eau de Parfums (atomizer)||
Organic Perfumer's Alcohol
|Solid Perfumes (tube)||
Organic Soy Wax,
Organic Shea Butter
What are your perfumes made from?
We use a mixture of media from plant matter to synthetic materials to create our little worlds inside these tiny vials. We strive to use wild harvested, organic, and natural materials whenever possible. And while 2020 Hope is all natural, our flagship collection and Scents for Gents celebrate the variety of scents available to help us tell our bottled stories. For example, it's impossible to actually bottle... well... snow. So we have to fake it occasionally and pray to the gods we get it right. Here is a table of the base ingredients for each of our formats:
|Perfume Oils||Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil, Parfum|
|Eau de Parfums||Organic Perfumer's Alcohol, Parfum|
Proprietary Blend of Organic Soy Wax, Organic Shea Butter, Parfum
Essential Oils, Absolutes, Organic Base (see above for format)
