Targeting environmentally minded consumers, Maison Sybarite is introducing a range of cruelty-free, water-based fragrances that are made without ethyl alcohol, chemical solvents or texturing agents. The water-based fine fragrances use oil-in-water microemulsions rather than ethanol—although preferred by perfumers, alcohol can cause a drying effect and actually shorten the lifespan of a scent on the skin. In contrast, according to the French perfume brand, the collection of water-based fragrances is "long-lasting, full-bodied and evokes feelings of confidence and empowerment."
The eco-conscious fragrances are offered in a variety of scents, including Opulent Wood, Bed of Roses and Spicy Calabria, featuring bergamot, ginger, limette and oud. These products are sold in recyclable packages made with paper from sustainable forests.
