Why Switch to Natural Perfume?

Have you ever considered what’s really in those perfumes you wear every day? Walk though any department store, and it’s hard to ignore the influx of fragrance that hits us. 

But how exactly do your favourite perfumers make these fragrances? You might not know it, but all those fancy perfumes you see in the store are actually created artificially - and they’re affecting our health.

From asthma and skin irritations to severe health concerns including cancer, it’s hard to imagine how - or why - synthetic perfumes continue to be a daily choice for so many of us. We love wearing beautiful fragrances, but are no longer fans of the health risks associated with these man-made scents.

Finally - a welcome alternative to the synthetic and man-made fragrances that are stripping our skin and causing a range of health concerns: all-natural perfume.

Something smells off: what’s the problem with synthetic fragrances?

Most synthetic fragrances are man-made from petroleum products, which, as research has shown, can have a detrimental effect on a range of factors, from our skin to hormones, and even links to cancer. It’s a scary thought!

But here’s the real kicker: perfume suppliers never actually have to disclose the ingredients that make up these synthetic fragrances, leaving you blind to the hidden nasties contained within your favourite perfume bottle. Synthetic fragrances may contain a number of ingredients, including carcinogens (yes, the substance that promotes the formation of cancer), allergens, irritants, toxins, and endocrine disruptors. It sounds ominous, doesn’t it? As it should.

These ingredients have been linked to a range of health issues, including:


Skin irritants


Breathing difficulties (including asthma)

Nervous system damage

Hormonal imbalances


These ingredients are found in other products beyond your perfume, riddled throughout your home. Some of the most important products to switch to natural also include your laundry detergent, cosmetics, air freshener, soap, shampoo, and sunscreen.

Switching to all natural products

Switching to all natural products might seem overwhelming, and it likely will be if you try to switch out all your products at once. We think that the best way to transition is with small, consistent changes to your daily routine and lifestyle. First, start with just one product, for example, your perfume. Do your own research so you can confidently make your own choices, and start to explore all your options.

At Sensoriam, we bring the world’s best natural perfumes right here to Australia, making it easy to achieve this first swap.

Once you’ve found a few favourite scents, move on to your next product, such as sunscreen or your laundry detergent. Each step you take is one step closer to a toxic-free lifestyle!

Why choose natural perfume?

We love wearing perfume, but as we became more conscious and educated on the issues of synthetic ingredients, we knew we needed to find a better way to wear beautiful scents.
