Soooooo, I have some bad news for you: Your favorite perfume might be ruining your life. Like, I know that sounds dramatic, but because fragrance companies aren’t required to list all of the ingredients in their products, there could be an ingredient lurking around in there that isn’t meshing well with your skin. On top of that, conventional perfumes are typically filled with sus chemicals and synthetics (which, uh, no thanks). Here’s the good news: There are so many natural perfumes on the market that are sulfate-free, phthalate-free, and paraben-free and are made with organic ingredients that are more kind to your skin. Oh, and they legit smell amazing. Ahead, the 10 best natural perfumes that you’ll want to spritz on every damn day.

Best Warm and Floral Natural Perfume
Ellis Brooklyn Myth Eau de Parfum
This natural perfume is subtle, but it’ll draw in whoever’s around the moment you spritz it. It’s kind of like being swaddled in a nice, relaxing bath. The warm notes are at the heart of the scent (think: liquid musks and white cedarwood), and they’re rounded out by the jasmine petals and tiger orchid, which keep the scent from coming off too strong.
Best Affordable Natural Perfume
Queen Bee by Good Chemistry Eau de Parfum
So when you hear the words “natural” and “perfume,” you probably think “expensive”—and I totally feel you. But this natural perfume checks off all the boxes (smells good, free of parabens, and free of sulfates) and it’s only 25 bucks. It’s equal parts sweet, flirty, and fresh, thanks to the notes of black currant, peony, and amber. Think of it as the fragrance equivalent of the winky-face emoji.
Best Fruity and Creamy Natural Perfume
Lavanila The Healthy Fragrance Vanilla Grapefruit
You know that feeling on a summer evening when you’re sipping on a grapefruit mezcal cocktail while dancing to J. Balvin? That’s what this natural perfume smells like. The blend of fruity pink grapefruit, creamy vanilla, and musky cedarwood leaves behind a warm, bright, and comforting scent.
Best Fresh and Floral Natural Perfume
Clean Reserve Rain
Ever wish you could bottle up the scent in the air after it rains? Well, look no further than this natural perfume. The bergamot, rain water (yes, actual rain water), and white floral notes will remind you of a calming tropical shower. If you close your eyes, it’s almost like you’re at the beach.
Best Fruity Natural Perfume
Fresh Hesperides Grapefruit Eau de Parfum
Since we can’t really travel internationally right now (*sob*), this natural perfume is the next best thing. One spritz and it’ll instantly take you to a fruit orchard in Italy on a hot summer day. The grapefruit, Italian lemon, and peach notes are paired with deeper bergamot and musk scents, creating a fragrance that’s fresh, zesty, and the perfect amount of fruity.
Best Floral and Spicy Natural Perfume
Heretic Dirty Rose Eau de Parfum
This natural perfume puts a flavorful twist on your classic rose scent. The notes cover almost every category: There’s spicy pink pepper, hot and fruity cloves, tender apricot, and citrusy bergamot, but they don’t compete with each other. The smell is exhilarating yet inviting—spray some on and you’ll def have heads turning from the moment you step outside.
Best Fruity and Floral Natural Perfume
Skylar Eau De Toilette Coral
I like to refer to this natural perfume scent as the adult version of a juice box. It’s definitely anchored by the fruity notes (hellooo, grapefruit and apple blossom), but the depth of the sandalwood and the freshness from the lily petals give the scent an air of sophistication that’ll make you want to put your pinky up while you spritz.
Best Earthy Natural Perfume
Phlur Greylocke Eau de Parfum
For anyone who isn’t about that outdoors life (me), but loves the thought of coming back home to a warm cabin after a long walk in the woods on a late fall day, this natural perfume is for you. The sea salt and birch leaf notes bring you straight to a forest-lined campsite, no dirt included.
Best Warm and Woody Natural Perfume
By Rosie Jane Eau De Parfum Spray James
This natural perfume has the same refreshing woody scent as the one above, but there’s more depth here, thanks to the mix of citrus, sandalwood, bergamot, and vanilla. It’s meant to mimic the smell of Lake Tahoe in the fall—mission accomplished.
Best Fresh Natural Perfume
Lake & Skye 11 11 Eau de Parfum
So fresh, so clean is exactly how I would describe this natural perfume. It’s like slipping into freshly laundered bed sheets at the end of the day—the scent is crisp (that’s the ozonic accord notes working their magic) but the white musk and amberwood are still able to wrap you in warmth, like a weighted blanket for your senses.
