Pour le Monde Offers 100% Natural Fragrance [Review]

Even those of us who strive to live a natural and green lifestyle still need to don a little perfume once in a while, maybe for a special occasion or a night out on the town. Perfumes are one of those products that can cause a lot of sensitivities and allergies in people, even if they are used to applying scented items to their body on a daily basis. Perfumes containing natural ingredients are hard to find, requiring a lot of research about the ingredients and the companies. I would like to introduce you to a fragrance crafted with 100% natural eau de parfums, free of harmful chemicals and vegan and gluten-free. Pour le Monde is one of only two companies that are certified by the Natural Products Association.

The Not So Good
Naturally derived ingredients/essential oils

Free of harmful chemicals

FSC certified packaging

Pour le Monde 100% natural eau de parfums are free of harmful chemicals (phthalates, parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, chemical sunscreens and petrochemicals). They are infused with grain alcohol and tocopherol/Vitamin E oil to preserve the natural oils. Although grain alcohol (alcohol denat) is rated as a 4 on EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database, this product is probably the most natural you can get with perfumes. The fragrances used in Pour le Monde eau de parfum are naturally derived essential oils, extracted through a steam or low temperature distillation process. The Natural Products Association defines fragrances as 100% natural fragrances when this extraction method is used.

I love that Pour le Monde is only of two companies that is certified to offer a natural product. I stopped using fragrances when I learned about the harmful and toxic chemicals in them. Now I have an option for a date night with my husband. The scents are very pleasing and would appeal to a variety of consumers. My favorite scent is Pour le Monde Empower for the sweet and citrus notes. I found that the scent lasted for a good amount of time. If you like to wear a fragrance all day long, you would need to refresh once or twice as the scent wears off. I also liked that the scent was not overpowering and did not transfer to other people or items in close proximity.

If you are looking for a natural fragrance, whether you are pregnant, nursing, or conscious of the products you put on your body, Pour le Monde eau de parfum offers an eco-friendly, 100% natural option. This chemical-free perfume is perfect for people with sensitives to chemical and synthetic fragrances.

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
