20 Best Vegan Perfumes for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is exactly one week from today. Like millions Americans, I gift my mom a perfume for Mother’s Day every year. Since going vegan, this has been a bit challenging, mostly because I didn’t know the terrain. But now, my vegan perfume wishlist is nearly endless! Last year I got my mom perfume pick number fifteen after receiving both her fragrances “Saint” #15 and “Sinner” #16 as a PR package over a year ago. I love them both equally. Saint has a cleaner, fresh aroma while Sinner is a bit more sexy, however, both are bold scents. And the bottle are just stunning, true pieces of art, they just look great sitting on any vanity.

You can feel good about gifting any one of these picks because every single one these perfumes vegan and cruelty-free. One of my all-time favorites vegan perfumes is Stella McCartney’s perfume “Stella” #8. This was my favorite scent for the longest time, I used to carry the roller ball version around with me in my purse at all times. Most of these vegan perfumes pics are high end but there are some more budget friendly options too like #2, #4, #6, and  #9. One of these perfumes even helps support families in nations rebuilding after war, that’s pick #20— and it’s organic too!

My current favorite is pick #10, Olive Atelier’s More than the Stars. I discovered this perfume back in March during our trip to Kauai. While waiting for my coffee one day inside a crowded cafe, I  decided to pop into the little boutique next door. It had the best selection of clothing, beauty, accessories, and kids items. This perfume was sitting on a display next to the prettiest gold jewelry. Its distinct gold bulb atomizer caught my eye. I was instantly smitten with it. It’s hard to describe because I’ve never smelled anything like it before. Curious to know what was in it, I read the brand’s description of this scent as I stood there in that little shop. Here’s part of what it said:

“How much love can a human heart hold?  How far is its reach, how deep its depth?   What keeps us here, now – the fathomless unending love we have for our children, for each other – and hopefully, one day – ourselves.  Our love is around the world and back again – it’s More Than The Stars.”

I was sold.

It contains a top note of almond, middle notes of stargazer lily and gardenia, and base notes of Egyptian Musk, fresh sandalwood, essential vanilla, and Brazilian vetiver. If you’re looking for a scent you can wear all year round, this is the one you’ve been looking for.

 

 

OXBLOOD

OXBLOOD-1 OXBLOOD-2 OXBLOOD-3 OXBLOOD-4 OXBLOOD-6 OXBLOOD-5I’ve been anxiously waiting for the weather to cool down so I could break out this coat. I got it a while back even though it was still a million degrees outside. When you see a great coat you just have to jump on it, you know? The faux-fur collar has me obsessed! I love the contrast of the body’s texture with the faux-fur. The collar is also detachable and once detached, it gives the coat a completely different look which is still polished but a bit more casual. I can’t wait to shoot it again without the collar for you guys to see. Oxblood is a huge color this season and I’m loving it so much that I even did an oxblood lip color for this look. The gold and oxblood nail stickers were a coincidence though. I stocked up on these nail stickers back when Marchesa partnered with Revlon. They’re so gorgeous, I hope they do another collaboration soon! Can you imagine CHANEL nail stickers?! Quick, someone make that happen!

OXBLOOD

He estado esperando ansiosamente el clima enfríe para podrer estrenar este abrigo. Lo compre hace tiempo a pesar de que todavía estava un millón de grados afuera. Cuando vean un gran abrigo lo tienen que comprar de inmediato, ¿sabes? El cuello de piel sintética me tiene obsesionada! Me encanta el contraste de la textura del cuerpo con la piel sintética. El cuello también es desmontable y una vez separada, el abrigo tiene una apariencia completamente diferente, todavía se ve sofisticado, pero un poco más casual. No puedo esperar para fotografiarlo de nuevo sin el collar para que ustedes vean. Oxblood es un color muy popular esta temporada y lo estoy amando tanto que hasta me puse un color de labios de color rojo oscuro para este look. Las calcomanías de oro y rojo oscuro para las uñas fueron una coincidencia, me las puse hace dias. Compre varias de estas calcomanías el año pasado cuando Marchesa se asoció con Revlon. Son tan magníficas, espero que hagan otra colaboración pronto! ¿Te imaginas calcomanías de uñas de CHANEL?! Rápido, alguien haga que eso suceda!
