Natural perfumes versus synthetics


Natural perfumes are a whole different ballgame to synthetic fragrances - they are much more subtle. As one perfumist wrote:  “You are interacting with the soul of the plant.”

Natural perfumes take a bit of getting used to if you are used to mainstream perfumes, which are much stronger smelling and last all day. Kis My Body suggests applying Kis perfume every four hours, which is why they come in good quality and very portable glass bottles.

Some perfumes contain synthetic fixatives that are very bad for your health, and that’s another reason why the lasting power of natural perfumes will always be less than the mainstream perfumes. One Kis customer bought both the 50ml spray perfume as well as the rollerball perfume oil and uses the rollerball to top up during the day.

The lasting power of the natural perfumes also varies greatly among individuals, depending on your skin type and other factors, but it will nearly always be less than mainstream perfumes. 

So as a consumer you may need to adjust your expectations if you are going down the healthy route of natural perfumes. You may have to apply your perfume more frequently, which is a pleasure and a natural pick-me-up because Kis perfumes use organic essential oils.
