Perfume is something that I love however is actually surprising hard to find from a 100% vegan and cruelty free retailer. I have tried various different brands and today want to share with you one of my recent favourites! That being the amazing ‘Raga’ by Dolma Perfumes.
If you are anything like me and have no idea what to order Dolma do a lovely little box of all their 12 different perfumes in miniatures (who doesn’t live a miniature?) It means you can try out all the scents without having to fork out and potentially waste an unwanted large bottle, and they are super handy for travel too! After trying them all my favourite is definitely Raga (followed closely by Keltina) Oddly Raga is inspired by music, melodic frameworks of Indian classical music, quite fitting really as my main hobby is music. It is fruity (pear) and cinnamon accented, it literally smells like pudding. It is deep with floral tones, amber and wood. For that man in your life they also do a handy Mens Vegan Aftershave set too.. (the minute this arrived my dad had his eye on it, sorry husband!)
All the Dolma fragrances are hand crafted in Britain, are cruelty free, vegan and environmentally friendly. Starting in 1982 Dolma has been creating beautifully scented vegan perfumes for all. They are Humane Society, Cruelty Free International, The Vegan Society, Animal Aid and Dr Hadwen Trust certified!
In terms of being zero waste or plastic free, Dolma are almost there, the packaging is recycled and recyclable, they do send the gift sets in plastic due to current UK postal laws. Dolma are now looking into ways to reduce their plastic use currently and are in talks with suppliers about their eco footprint 🙂 yay!
I would certainly recommend trying these scents out, they are earth, animal and nose friendly 😉 in other words they smell amazing without causing guilt from suffering animals. Let me know which fragrance is your favourite?
