Eco & Ethics


Doing No Harm:

At Laboratory Perfumes, we try to look after the world. After all, it’s where both the inspiration and the ingredients for our fragrances come from. All our practices and perfumes are formed in accordance with the same Hippocratic principle underpinning modern medicine: ‘first, do no harm’.

All our scents and candles are made in the UK using socially conscious, environmentally friendly and cruelty-free ingredients. We don’t test on animals and our scents are created in our lab using essential and fragrant oils.  All of them are skin-kind and free from parabens (Gorse does contain a small amount of phthalates & preservatives which are required to stabilise the citrus oils).

Lastly, all of our products are full compliant with the International Fragrance Association Standards.

Laboratory Perfumes fragrances are made with non-animal-derived ingredients and therefore vegan, and our scented candles are made with paraffin wax – with the exception of Atlas (our lab tests showed that this particular fragrance has to be infused into beeswax in order to preserve the integrity of the scent).

We demand the same ethical and environmental standards of everyone we work with – our supply chain is small, transparent, located entirely within the UK and fully adherent to ISO 9000: 2008. All glass, card and paper used in Laboratory Perfumes packaging is sustainably sourced and widely recycled.

Finally, Laboratory Perfumes fragrances are intended to be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. Gender is the one thing we really don’t care about.
