Certainly, there are many different facets of your Big Day (not to mention the many wedding-inspired events leading up to it) for which you can plan and prepare. Fashion and décor aside, we often downplay or forget about the importance of feeling—and smelling—as beautiful and fresh as we hope to look. In addition to finding an effective deodorant to help you maintain your confidence, we uncovered these beautiful vegan scents from around the world to even further enhance your overall sensory experience.
The Body Shop – White Musk Flora
As an extension of the longstanding popular White Musk option at The Body Shop, the newer Flora fragrance combines what makes it so well-loved with a boost of bergamot, pink pepper, peonies, and lily of the valley. And for a touch of exotica, its sugar cane essence is actually sourced sustainably in Sao Paulo.
Clean – Classic Rain
Perfect for a light and crisp option, this fresh scent boasts a soft simplicity reminiscent of rain. It has melon, daffodil and water-mint top notes and spring daisy, water lily, and violet leaves in the middle, with musk and woodsy base notes to finish.
Eden Perfumes – Number Seven
Combining a classic, floral scent inspired by 1930s Hollywood, this UK vegan perfume company delights and awes with this bottle. Ylang ylang top notes, iris middle notes, and jasmine base notes are the most apparent, but you may also experience wafts of lemon, bergamot, rose, vanilla, sandalwood, and patchouli (just to name a few).
Kat Von D – Saint
When you think of romance and softness, Kat Von D may not automatically come to mind. But the entrepreneurial vegan created this beautiful fragrance with just those ideas in mind—starting with Jasmine and Tiaré flower top notes, and finishing with heart of Mandarin, caramel, sparkling Mirabelle plum, vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk.
Pacifica – Kindred Spirit
Warm, woodsy and bright, this newly introduced scent only adds to the extensive line of products in this popular vegan beauty brand. Pacifica designed the cheerful bottle accordingly to fit well with the hints of lemon, pine, rose, and myrrh.
Raw Spirit – Desert Blush
This sensual, sweet scent from the female-founded Australian company was inspired by the desert sunset and includes top notes of Jasmine petals and violet top notes, local Boronia florals and ylang ylang middle notes, and sustainable and wild harvested sandalwood to finish. Proceeds even go to support Indigenous cultural projects.
Stella McCartney – Stella
Stella McCartney has animal advocacy in her blood, since her famous vegetarian parents are Paul and Linda. When it comes to this equal parts feminine and strong fragrance, the refined and soft English rose floral top notes balance with fresh mandarin essence and light peony flower, as well as contrasting amber.
