Ready to jump on the Veganuary bandwagon this month? Here at PARFUM MUSE HQ, we’re passionate about vegan fine fragrances, so we’re fully embracing Veganuary. Whether you’re a vegan enthusiast or just want to dip your toe into vegan beauty, we encourage you to try these cruelty-free concoctions.

What is Veganuary?

Veganuary marks the month of January, where everyone is encouraged to go vegan in whatever way it suits. This could be following a vegan diet, choosing vegan beauty products or adapting your business to be vegan-friendly. However you choose to support the movement, you’ll be protecting the environment, preventing animal cruelty and improving your health and wellbeing. At PARFUM MUSE, we support Veganuary and are here to inspire fragrance fans to make wise, researched choices when it comes to their perfume.

What is a vegan fragrance?

Simply put, a vegan fragrance is one that doesn’t feature animal-derived ingredients, such as honey, beeswax and ambergris. And you can rest assured that vegan, cruelty-free perfumes smell just as divine as their counterparts. What’s more, it feels good to do good. 

How to support Veganuary through fine fragrance

Give these niche vegan scents a try – take it from us, you’ll never look back…

Buy a calming candle like Saint Fragrance London | Late Night Fig

Ready, set, zen. Light this vegan candle to find inner peace as you embark on 2022. Frosty, dark nights will finally work in your favour when you curl up alongside Late Night Fig. This natural, ethically-sourced candle boasts the most gentle accords – a hundred crushed figs, radiant bergamot and smoky cedarwood.

Spritz a cruelty-free scent like Obvious | Une Vanille

This is the crème de la crème of vegan fine fragrances. Clean, refillable and 100% recyclable, grab Une Vanille to kickstart Veganuary in the most charming way. After one spritz, you’ll experience the most exquisite raw materials from around the world, like Madagascan black vanilla absolute and Venezuelan tonka bean. Basically, we’ll be spritzing this all winter long.
