I used to religiously wear perfume until I realized how harmful conventional perfume is. I threw all of my perfume away a long time ago, but I had not attempted to replace it with a natural alternative.

A couple months back, I reviewed an awesome lip tint from Pacifica Perfume. When I mentioned to them I had been eyeing a few of their perfume scents, they kindly sent me 2 bottles to try!

Pacifica fragrances are made from natural, pure grain alcohol and essential and natural oils. They are made without parabens, phthalates, mineral oils, GMOs, propylene glycol and artificial color. They are 100% vegan and gluten free, and they never test on animals.

California Star Jasmine Perfume Roll-On

The first fragrance I got to try was their California Star Jasmine Perfume Roll-On. I have always loved the smell of jasmine flowers, so I was thrilled to try this perfume. It is a really great value at only $12. That’s so much less than the expensive perfumes I used to buy!

I love the convenience of the roll-on. You can really control how much scent you’re using and exactly where it’s going. It’s also easy to discreetly re-apply in public. It smells a little like alcohol when you first put it on, but that quickly dissipates and you’re left with the sweet scent of my favorite jasmine flowers.

Tahitian Gardenia Spray Perfume

The other fragrance I received was the Tahitian Gardenia Spray Perfume. The spray costs a little more than the roll-on at $22, but it’s still such a great value compared to what I used to spend on perfume.

The gardenia is similar to jasmine, but lighter and sweeter. The first time I put it on, it definitely turned Brian’s head! It had been a long time since I had worn perfume, and he said he really liked the scent of this one!

I think this is my all-time favorite perfume, and it just may become my new signature scent!

So, if you’re been looking to replace that toxic perfume on your shelf with a healthier option, check out the awesome fragrances from Pacifica Perfume!

You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.

I might have to order some. I love perfumes, but I want something more natural. And the natural ones are much cheaper than the $120 bottles I used to buy.

This was the first natural perfume I’d tried and I really was impressed. And you can’t beat those prices compared to the department store junk I used to use!

Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll definitely look into this company. I’d love to find something new.

Pacifica’s labels are misleading/untruthful. The perfumes are NOT 100% natural. When asked, the founder Brooke Harvey-Taylor said the following: “For Pacifica, I never claim that we are 100% natural.”

You can read her interview here:

How can they claim to use only essential and natural oils when she is saying her products are NOT 100% natural? I think consumers have a right to know the truth especially when some of us are seeking out natural perfumes due to allergies/health reasons.

Thanks for sharing your perspective. I don’t see anything on the fragrance labels that concern me. There are definitely ingredients in the Pacifica cosmetics line that aren’t totally natural, so I think she may be talking about the company as whole when she says they are not 100% natural.
