Whether you’re shopping for a cruelty-free, vegan cologne for yourself or for a gift, it can be hard to navigate to find one that wasn’t tested on animals or contains any animal-derived ingredients.
Trying to figure out which cologne or fragrances are vegan can be a bit tricky as the list of ingredients for fragrances aren’t always easy to read and manufactures are not required to disclose every ingredient that goes into their fragrances because it’s considered as a “trade secret”.
But not to worry because I found 7 cruelty-free and vegan cologne for men that weren’t tested on animals and does not contain any animal ingredients!

Blue Mark by Jack Black is a cruelty-free and 100% vegan cologne for the modern gentleman. It is a classic scent – with notes of citrus and warm woods – the perfect anytime fragrance.

The Body Shop ($28)
Percy Nobleman (£37)
Percy Noleman Signature Fragrance is a cruelty-free and vegan cologne best suited for the sophisticated gentleman. This cologne is described as “a compelling burst of citrus notes which both invigorate and excite the senses. Once settled, the base and mid-notes come into play while the sweeter top notes take a step back. The prominent musk and vanilla provide the perfect blend of old and new, helping to create a fragrance which is both timeless yet original, a true great in the making!”
Aesop’s vegan cologne is described as a contemporary interpretation of a classic cologne. “Aesop’s Tacit Eau de Parfum has a distinctive yet familiar citrus top note, which mellows to a fresh and verdant heart of Basil Grand Vert. Inspired by the Mediterranean coastline as well as the clean notes found in more traditional colognes, this blissful marriage of tradition and modernity is worthy of your favourite modern gentleman.”
