More than fragrance

We believe people want products that stand for something. We’ve taken every opportunity to make conscientious decisions about our ingredients, our packaging and, of course, our partners.

Innovation starts
 with ingredients.

We seek out ingredients that are grown and cultivated with innovative, environmental methods and exclude raw materials that damage ecosystems. We've made tough but important decisions when choosing between natural ingredients and those made in a lab. Our products are free of known skin irritants, parabens, phthalates, unnecessary stabilizers and animal products. We expect the best out of ourselves and our partners. And we think you do, too.

Sustainable
synthetics in Hanami

Natural Indian Sandalwood, prized for its distinctive scent, has been over-harvested to the point of near decimation. But all is not lost; labs have successfully created scent molecules that are indistinguishable from natural sandalwood. Better than that, they are safe for skin and the environment. We believe in preserving natural Sandalwood and proudly use this synthetic alternative in Hanami.

Strengthening
Communities with Hepcat

The harvests of Madagascan farmers sustain entire communities but are subject to weather patterns and the limited growing season of their cash crop - vanilla. By introducing vetiver to these farmers, our partner Symrise created a new revenue stream to encourage economic growth and fortify the soil. Not only is this Madagascan vetiver in Hepcat, we are proudly the first brand in the world to use this responsible and revolutionary ingredient.

Central American Snowbell tree resin used in Moab. #phlur #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle Central American Snowbell tree resin used in Moab. #phlur #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle

Supporting
Tradition with Moab

Central American Snowbell trees (aka: Styrax trees) produce a resin essential to many fragrances, including Moab. However, its safe and sustainable method of harvest is becoming a lost art. In procuring this precious resin for our fragrance, we’ve chosen a supplier that helps preserve the craft by mandating competitive wages and more transparency throughout the supply chain.

A better bottle.

No point having great ingredients if you don’t protect them, right? Our bottle reflects the same effort and consideration we put into our fragrances.

Our bottle protects against light damage, helps us avoid additives and is made of 20% recycled glass. #PHLUR  #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle Our bottle protects against light damage, helps us avoid additives and is made of 20% recycled glass. #PHLUR  #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle Our bottle protects against light damage, helps us avoid additives and is made of 20% recycled glass. #PHLUR  #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle
Keeping Out Light
Simply put, light damages fragrance. Our bottle was designed to block out external light to ensure that your fragrance is as vivid and enticing as the day you got it.
Avoiding Additives
Fragrances in clear bottles require stabilizers and dyes to make them look more appealing. Our opaque bottles mean you don’t have to spray unnecessary chemicals on your skin.
Recycled Materials
Our bottles are made of 20% recycled glass, the highest percentage possible in the industry. This differentiates us in a business that still largely uses virgin flint glass.

Sustainable manufacturing.

We've chosen our partners based on more than just the high quality of
their products. We've sought companies that manufacture thoughtfully
and actively support their communities.

Brazilian orange oil used in Siano. #PHLUR #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle

Renewable manufacturing in brazil

Brazilian orange oil is the pop of energy that gives Siano its distinct character. This oil is made from the skin of the fruit, a byproduct of the juice and flavor industry. Better still, the entire oil extraction process is powered by renewable ethanol from locally-grown cane sugar, at a plant in Sorocaba that employs hundreds of local residents.

Resin from the heartwood of pine a component of Greylocke. #PHLUR #consciouschoices #sustainablestyle

Thoughtful craftsmanship in Georgia

Resin from the heartwood of pine trees is a key component of our fragrance, Greylocke. We work with Pinova, a supplier out of southeast GA that employs 400 local residents and builds on a 100-year legacy of distillation innovation and sustainability. They take tree stumps that would typically be discarded as waste and produce a clean, refreshing ingredient that helps bring our fragrance to life while giving a new life to these trees.

We believe in giving back.

In addition to using responsible ingredients, we believe in supporting initiatives that have a lasting impact on people's lives. That's why $5 from every bottle sold is donated directly to a cause we have faith in.


Giving to Central Park Conservancy

For more than 35 years, the Central Park Conservancy has kept the park a site of inspiration for its millions of visitors and admirers. With every bottle of Olmsted & Vaux, we will donate $5 to the Conservancy to continue this legacy.


Strengthening the IUCN Red List

Recent studies have indicated that 1 in every 5 species of plants is threatened with extinction. We require that all of our fragrances adhere to IUCN's Red List of threatened plants. In addition, we proudly support IUCN to further strengthen its work to assess and protect vulnerable plant species.
