The best natural halal perfumes have no nasties, no alcohol, and no animal parts, either!
By Lora O’Brien
Perfume is highly personal. The scent the wearer chooses to spritz over themselves will say a lot about who they are. But for many devout Muslim women, their choices are limited, because most perfumes are not halal.
For these women, the halal concept doesn’t just apply to food, but in other aspects of life, too. And when it comes to perfume, a product can only be considered halal if it doesn’t contain alcohol, animal ingredients, harsh chemicals and is not tested on animals.
Whether you’re Muslim seeking all natural halal perfumes, or you’re looking for a unique scent that isn’t loaded with chemicals, below are lots of delicious scents that won’t harm your health. Using magnificent natural oils and high-quality fragrance, these Muslim-friendly fragrances are also vegan-friendly. And all are perfect for finding your signature scent!

Crafted in Melbourne, Australia, Christy Organics is a perfumery brand that specializes in a range of vegan and organic roll-on perfumes. Their scents are each made entirely from a blend of natural ingredients that are sourced locally in Australia, such as botanical concentrates. The unique thing about wearing an all-natural perfume is that its scent will evolve differently, depending on the wearer’s skin chemistry – which means you’ll have a unique scent that is entirely yours.
Made with 100% natural ingredients, all Christy Organics perfumes are free from synthetic notes, chemical preservatives and additives. They’re also free from alcohol, parabens, phthalates, and are vegan and cruelty-free, too.
