Throughout the years, perfume has been one of the most desired beauty items. It was a product for the upper class only. Until the modern perfumery began in 19th century, perfumes were made only from natural ingredients. Even the most luxurious scents were crafted using ingredients found in nature. Nowadays, fragrances are also so important that many people even have a ‘signature’ perfume: a scent they want to be associated with.
Despite the fact that there are many green brands offering natural beauty products, natural perfumes are still not that easy to find. That’s why I’m so excited to share about SINNE Firenze and its handcrafted 100% organic, vegan and fair trade essential oil blends.
SINNE Firenze is based in Florence, Italy. With 4 unisex scents in the range – Refresh Me, Balance Me, Delight Me and Calm Me – everything about this brand screams simplicity and luxury. A modern black and white packaging holds sleek see-through roll-on tubes with pure essential oil blends. I have tried 2 scents out of 4 and liked them a lot so far. Interesting fact: not only SINNE Firenze use only pure ingredients, but also use organic jojoba oil instead of alcohol as a base for its blends.
Refresh Me* 8ml / €18 – $20
This essential oil blend has a very gentle minty orange scent, which “refreshes the soul and clear the head”. I absolutely enjoy using this natural perfume, it makes me feel comfortable and simply happy. My friend, who is usually skeptic towards essential oil blends, said it smells like joy, so that says a lot.
Balance Me* 8ml / €18 – $20
Balance Me is a deep and oriental herbal scent with a subtle tint of lavender. This perfume somehow makes me feel like it’s Sunday evening and I’m relaxing with a cup of my favorite Sonnentor Stormy Weather herbal tea. What I like the most about this blend is that it helps with breathing. Each sniff makes my breathing deeper and more calmer. I believe it would be beneficial for those suffering from stress or anxiety, because it will bring you balance.
Like many essential oil blends, both of these scents dissipate soon. Though, Balance Me stays a little longer than Refresh Me. However, because I like them a lot, I don’t mind reapplying throughout the day.
