Fragrance lovers know that when something unique arrives in the marketplace, it’s time to jump on it. Pour Le Monde fragrances will definitely excite lovers of the beautiful and the unique. They’re special, not just because they are all natural perfumes but also because each of the three fragrances currently available is tied to a worthy non profit. The founders wanted to create chemical-free, non-toxic perfumes and since they are socially responsible, they called the company: ” Pour le Monde” which means for the world, Pour le Monde is currently only one of two companies with fragrances certified by the Natural Products Association –and they’ll be partnering with even more charities so stay tuned for future launches.
This being said, I generally don’t review fragrances from tiny samples, because I really don’t think that’s enough to truly experience the fragrance and report on it thoroughly. Now and then, however, with my arms twisted I agree. With just a bit of a quick sniff, here’s a bit about these fragrances. The thing I can say with absolutely certainty is that those who are longing for natural fragrance will be delighted. These are 100% natural fragrance made from essential oils and natural isolates with Natural Grain alcohol and Distilled water. What isn’t in them includes: Petrochemicals, Phthalates, Artificial Dyes of any kind, Propylene Glycol, Synthetic Alcohol, Mineral Oil, Parabens, Chemical Sunscreens, Formaldehyde or sulfates. The fragrances are also recognized by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics for being animal cruelty free, plus Peta, Leaping Bunny, and the Forest Stewardship Council.
