some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)

๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

7 Cruelty-Free Vegan Cologne for Men

This post may contain affiliate links.

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!

Cruelty-Free and Vegan Cologne

Jack Black ($72)

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.


Aromi ($14-$35)

Aromi offers vegan cologne in both solid and liquid versions. “Each cologne is named after something one could call a man, including: Very Manly, What a Stud, Sexy Man, Handsome, You’re Hot, Outdoor Guy, Sweet Dude, Masculine, and Douchebag.

Aromi’s Solid colognes are perfect for traveling or whenever a portable fragrance is needed, such as a gym bag, backpack, desk or briefcase, to name a few. The liquid colognes contain our signature cologne blends in the traditional spray format. Aromi solid and liquid colognes are handcrafted, formulated, and poured in the Aromi laboratory using only natural essential oils and premium perfume ingredients.”


CLEAN ($95)

CLEAN is a cruelty-free fragrance brand and they carry a lot of options for vegan cologne. Their CLEAN RESERVE focuses on gathering pure ingredients responsiblyโ€”all with a steadfast commitment to high-quality scent. This vegan cologne from CLEAN is cruelty-free, vegan, gluten-free, phthalate free, non-toxic, and comes in eco-conscious packaging.


Herban Cowboy ($29)

Herban Cowboy’s natural and 100% vegan cologne utilizes natural scents from lavender flower oil, bergamot fruit oil, lemon peel oil, lime oil, clary sage oil and ylang flower oil. US made and recyclable.


The Body Shop ($28)

The Body Shop has several cruelty-free and vegan cologne options for men including this one, Arber Eau De Toilette which is described as an outdoorsy scent that’s clean and sophisticated.


Percy Nobleman (ยฃ37)

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 ($155)

Aesop’s vegan cologne is described as a contemporary interpretation of a classic cologne. “Aesopโ€™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.” I get my Aesop products from here if you wanted to go check it out!

    Bodyshop is owned by Lโ€™Orรฉal. Therefore, not eleigble for cruelty free status.

      L’Oreal sold The Body Shop to Natura and Natura is a cruelty-free corporation. The Body Shop is also cruelty-free and they don’t test any of their products or ingredients on animals.

    This is just the kind of list I was looking for! A lot of the vegan cologne lists don’t feature high end brands– I had no idea Clean and Aesop had cruelty free men’s fragrances. My boyfriend loves that Body Shop one, I think I’ll get him one of these next!

    Awesome post! It’s so hard for men to find cruelty free products. I feel like we always forget about them lol. This is so helpful! I’m trying to get my mom and dad to make the switch. I’ll have to show him these ๐Ÿ™‚

      I totally agree! Although all skin, hair, and personal care products are unisex but I know there’s some guys that prefer to use products marketed to men and in my research, I found the options were very limited. Hope to see more and more cruelty-free brands for men soon! =)

    ‘Scent & Colour’ match your fav designer fragrance and, so does ‘Eden’ both are fabulous with the fragrance staying on just as long as any designer one at the fraction of the price ?
