A few years into our natural body care line, I began to hear more people talk about how hard it was to find cruelty free perfumes. Since A Girl's Gotta Spa! is a Leaping Bunny certified brand (and vegan), I decided we needed to do something to fill this void in the market.
Most people usually associate A Girl's Gotta Spa! with spa quality bath and body products, not perfumes. However, scent, to me, aligns with mood and the feelings generated from them.
As a brand intended to encourage and uplift women, fragrance is the perfect extension of our brand.
As I write this, we have 5 cruelty free perfumes with a 6th in development for Summer.
5 CRUELTY FREE PERFUMES
ARISE: This perfume was named as a call to action to women to rise up, find their inner strength and overcome the obstacles holding then back.
Scent Profile: Evocative of a day spent strolling through an oceanside meadow of tropical jasmine sambac. The scent opens with sunny grapefruit and orange then deepens with your body heat to a delicious vanilla bean note.
Feeling: Floral, feminine and bright.
SOAR: For those who are ready to spread their wings and fly - Soar is about confidence and moving forward.
Scent Profile: Envision strolling through a citrus orchard on a breezy harvest day. Soar suggests a soft spice element that deepens to the warm lusciousness of fig and amber, leaving the lingering base note of white musk on your pulse points. Balanced with the brisk citrus bite of Meyer lemon and wild orange, Soar introduces a colorful whisper of geranium and rose absolute.
