On the search for sustainable Christmas scents? You’re about to meet the most luxurious niche fragrances for eco-conscious enthusiasts. Introducing the PARFUM MUSE planet-friendly perfume guide…

Obvious Une Rose | Eau de Parfum

Perfect for: Your other half or someone special in your life 

Sustainable tick list: Vegan, green, biodegradable, refillable, 100% recyclable 

This exotic, eco-friendly elixir oozes Bulgarian rose, Italian bergamot and Mexican tangerine. It certainly packs a punch, so you can rely on the pink pepper and cardamom when out and about this winter. We’re loving the bottle cap, which is made from wine cork off-cuts. Chic, unfussy and a guilt-free spritz, this is probably already on their wishlist this Christmas. 

Saint Fragrance London Late Night Fig | Fragranced Candle

Perfect for: Your best friend or a treat to yourself 

Sustainable tick list: Cruelty-free, 100% recyclable, manufactured responsibly, vegan

Who doesn’t love inhaling fig, especially in the festive season? Mmmm. Impressively, 100 crushed figs created this calming candle, alongside zesty bergamot and warm cedarwood (and we’re not complaining). Ideal for anyone who loves to unwind and lives a sustainable lifestyle, this candle gradually works its magic around your living space. If you thought it couldn’t get better, the brand only uses the highest quality raw materials from around the world and avoids cellophane wrapping to minimise waste.  

Goldfield & Banks Pacific Rock Moss | Perfume Concentrate

Perfect for: Your super-cool cousin/aunt/uncle 

Sustainable tick list: Vegan, clean, green, cruelty-free, responsibly sourced

Anyone who receives this sustainable scent from Santa will fall head over heels with it. First of all, the bottle is seriously stunning (it’s no wonder there’s such a hype around it on Instagram). Then comes the sun-kissed scent, a contrast of zesty and warm nuances that are unexpectedly a match made in heaven. Welcome energetic hints of lemon and aquatic accords as you inhale this, followed by an enveloping duo of amber and cedarwood. Plus, it’s wrapped in biodegradable cellophane and features a recyclable pump. Enough said. 

Chopard Miel D'Arabie | Eau de Parfum

Perfect for: Your mum, dad, grandparents – you name it!

Sustainable tick list: Green, ethically sourced, sustainable natural ingredients

Sensual, sweet and sophisticated sound their style? Reach for this bold, bright blend. Enriched with tea infusions, spices, pomegranate and honey, one spritz of this will leave an unforgettable mark on everyone around them. When it comes to sustainability, Chopard takes pride in their ethical standpoint, which is recognised from their farming methods to the bottle’s responsibly sourced paper and glass. The perfect signature scent to sport daily, this is the most special gift for Christmas 2021.
