Alfresco: Natural Perfumes Made in the UK
When searching for a product as important and personal as perfume, it’s extremely important to look for markers of its quality. As someone who has been involved in the perfume and cosmetics industry for the last 20 years, I have developed guidelines that have become essential to my choice of perfume. I want to tell you how I make this decision.
For me, I prioritise a natural perfume that is made specifically in the UK. This is because I know the exceptionally high standard of production in the UK. British products are superbly made, as Alfresco products prove time and time again. As a small business owner myself, I know the importance of buying from local companies, which is why I always try and buy from people who dedicate time to becoming experts in their field. Buying natural perfumes made in the UK guarantees their production is closely monitored.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, another factor in my choice of perfume is its ingredients. Those with sensitive skin, or those who want to stay away from chemicals that can potentially harm your health. Synthetic perfumes often contain ingredients that I wouldn’t want anywhere near me, let alone all over my skin! The skin is the largest organ on the body and absorbs over 60% of what we put on into our bloodstream. I am therefore extra wary of any artificial chemicals which are often unassessed in terms of their safety.
Designed in London in a medicinal garden and made made by a perfume house founded in 1730, Alfresco is a UK natural perfume that exemplifies the talents of nearly 300 years of perfumery. We use only completely natural ingredients in our perfume and our moisturiser. Both are scented with the signature Alfresco fragrance, a delicious combination of 22 essential oils. It is a natural perfume from the UK that you can completely trust.
