Looking for a high-end cruelty-free and vegan perfume for yourself or for a gift? Sephora is a great place to shop for luxury perfumes at various price ranges but unfortunately, most of the fragrance brands they sell sadly still test on animals in 2019.

uckily, there are a handful of cruelty-free (and vegan!) fragrance brands that you can get your hands on at Sephora. In this post, I’m sharing 15 cruelty-free perfume brands + a bonus vegan scented candle brand so that you can live your best scented life without harming any animals!

First, what’s not vegan about perfume? This may come as a surprise to you (and gross you out) but some perfumes contain animal-derived ingredients like Ambergris, which is a grey, waxy substance produced in the digestive tract of sperm whales and used as a fixative in perfumes; Castroreum which is derived from beavers; and Musk which is a substance with a strong smell and is secreted from the glands of male musk deer.

Yah, I think we’ll pass on the animal ingredients and opt for cruelty-free and animal-free versions instead!
