Surprise, surprise: everyone’s favorite, bohemian chic retailer Free People just released its first-ever in-house beauty product: an all-natural fragrance collection! Called “1809: S,” “1809: Z” and “1809: C,” the three scents are formulated with no artificial notes or chemically altered ingredients. The entire collection is also cruelty-free and vegan.
As for the numerical moniker, it’s a nod to Free People’s original location on Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA.
“In developing the 1809 collection, we wanted to challenge conventional fragrance; it was important for us to use all-natural notes to truly represent the brilliant aromas nature provides us with,” said Free People’s Product Development Manager Christine Campbell. “Creating not only a perfume rooted in nature, but triggering a memory, an experience, an escape, in its truest form, without any artificial ingredients.”
Here’s what you need to know about each one:
“1809: S” is inspired by the sea, surf and summer. With a base of vanilla and Brazilian tonka bean, this fragrance has notes of Italian lemon, almond, melon, Madagascar ylang ylang and Tahitian coconut.
“1809: Z” is earthier with notes of Australian eucalyptus, Paraguayan guaiac wood and Indonesian patchouli.
Finally, “1809: C” is inspired by camp and early morning hikes with notes including star anise, watermelon, Moroccan cedar wood and Haitian vetiver.
The three scents are available today for $28 each at Free People stores and online.
