I can’t decide on which perfume, can I try first? We always recommend trying on your skin first and if you are in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France or Sweden it’s easy with our Sample Service. The perfect way to test three fragrances from the comfort of your home, plus, you can redeem the purchase price of the sample service on a bottle when you find something you love. Unfortunately for countries not listed we do not offer a sampling service. Don’t hesitate to reach out to our team to find out about a stockist near you.
Why is your Sample Service not available in the UK anymore? Due to the recent implications of Brexit, we have unfortunately had to make the decision to discontinue our Sample Service in the UK. We will continue to work with our logistics team to explore potential solutions, but for now, our Sample Service is no longer unavailable in the UK.
Are there fragrances in the collection which are more masculine/feminine? The whole collection is gender-neutral (unisex). If you are looking for a more traditionally masculine fragrance, we recommend Grey Labdanum. If you are looking for a more traditionally feminine fragrance, we recommend Golden Neroli or Pink Iris.
How concentrated are your perfumes? The vita odor collection is high concentration “eau de parfum”, with each fragrance having a minimum of 15% pure perfume oils.
Can you layer Abel perfume? Yes indeed… all our perfumes share the same DNA which makes them great for layering, you really can’t go wrong. If you’d like help getting started, you can read our tips and favourite combinations on our layering perfume journal post.
Are your perfumes actually 100% natural? Yes. Creating natural perfume that is chic, modern and long-lasting (i.e. without compromising) is our raison d’etre. So although we are flattered you don’t believe our fragrances are all natural, we can confirm they are. More specifically, we use a highly concentrated formula of natural oils, concretes and isolates (naturally derived single aroma compounds), set in a food-grade (non-denatured), organic alcohol base.
Does a 100% natural perfume stay on your skin? Yes. We have worked hard on our collection to ensure our perfumes do last on your skin. In particular the addition of long lasting “natural isolates” (see above) helps with our perfumes longevity. However, some fragrances last longer than others. I.e. Golden Neroli is a citrus floral that dissipates more quickly than the others. Pink Iris is a denser floral musk and has surprising staying power. Grey Labdanum and Cobalt Amber are comprised of longer-lasting ingredients such as resins.
How can I make the perfume last longer? There are a few things you can do to increase the life of your perfume on your skin. We recommend moisturising (with a fragrance-free cream or oil) before you apply your perfume as the drier your skin, the more quickly it will absorb the fragrance oils. Perfume applied to your hair and/or clothes will last longer than perfume applied to your skin. Also, think about where you apply your perfume – pulse points are good for the fragrance developing on your skin, however, the inside of your wrists isn’t good if you are typing on a computer all day – where it will rub off, or washing your hands regularly – where it will wash off. When applied near your nose (i.e. your neck), you become desensitised quickly from the constant smelling, so although others will smell your perfume, you won’t. Read more about this topic here.
Why should I choose a natural perfume like Abel? If you care about the environment, those around you and your own health, then Abel is a beautiful, safe alternative to the largely synthetic fragrances available on the market. Most synthetic aroma molecules are synthesized from crude oil, a non renewable resource. Some of these molecules are non-biodegradable and accumulate in the food chain, environment and our bodies. You can read more on our journal post about why we love natural perfume, and we avoid synthetic ingredients.
Are your products vegan? Yes, indeed. Our fragrances do not contain any ingredients from animal origin, nor are they tested on animals… we’re big fans of the little furry guys too.
What is in the perfume? Plant-derived perfume oils, concretes and absolute. Naturally derived single aroma compounds, i.e. natural musk from the hibiscus seed. And organically certified non-denatured food-grade alcohol. That’s it. See the full ingredients list of each fragrance here.
