Who makes all the fragrances?
Since 2015, the brand has moved to Portland under the helm of the talented Marisa Borrevik, who has taken over the day to day production of perfumes and operations at the studio. Please feel free to drop a note to Marisa anytime, she would love to hear from you and welcomes any and all feedback! firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I send a gift from your store?
Yes! We are always happy to make a gift a little extra special with our custom wrapping. Just leave us a message in the notes section during checkout that this is a gift, what you would like the gift tag to say and we will take care of the rest. Easy peasy.
Are your perfumes vegan / cruelty-free?
Yes, all of our fragrances are vegan and organic based and more natural than most mainstream fragrances. We believe in the variety that phthalate-free materials composed in a lab can offer us, and that animals should never be harmed in the making. To that end, we abstain from materials derived from animal sources and do not participate in animal testing.
Are your fragrances free from phthalates?
Yes! They are also free from parabens, glycols, and dyes. Yippee skippee!
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):
|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 celebrates 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:
|Eau de Parfums||Organic Perfumer's Alcohol, Parfum|
|Solid Perfumes||Proprietary Blend of Organic Soy Wax, Organic Shea Butter, Parfum|
|Natural Perfumes||Essential Oils, Absolutes, Organic Base (see above for format)|
Currently, the best way to smell our perfumes is to order one of our sample sets. We offer a Free Sample Set with a Gift Card for a full bottle of perfume which is a great way to receive our samples for free!
