NATURAL VS. CLEAN VS. TRADITIONAL

How Are Natural Fragrances Different?

TRADITIONAL: Created using mainly synthetic fragrance (manufactured molecules that mimic the aromas we all know.)

CLEAN: Discloses their ingredients and typically created with safe synthetic materials. Most “clean” fragrances only have a few natural ingredients, or sometimes none at all.

NATURAL: Each ingredient is derived from a natural source. A rare practice in the fragrance industry due to high cost and lack of availability.

At Heretic Parfum, we believe it’s worth every effort so that you experience not only the incredible scent profiles of these raw extracts but also benefit from their aromatherapeutic properties.

OUR NATURAL PROCESS

Inspired by ancient traditions, we’re crafting fragrances as they were created hundreds of years ago by artisan perfumers of the past—the witch doctors, outsiders, alchemists, the original heretics. 

Through traditional extraction methods, like distillation, expression, and extraction, we obtain essential oils, isolates, absolutes and resins from plants and flowers that we then blend into our fragrances at high concentrations to bring you the aromatherapy benefits of nature, like the calming effects of CBD and jasmine or the uplifting properties of real citrus oils, thereby making them a functional fragrance.
