Smelling Like Heaven Is Easier Than You Think

Published on January 20, 2010 by   ·   26 Comments Pin It

All us compassionate Glamazons know, You don’t have to be cruel to be kind.

And now, you don’t have to spend a fortune, be covered in chemicals, and reek like a strip club to smell like full-blown heaven. Recently launched out of NYC – Tallulah Jane is a 100% natural and 100% cruelty free perfumery creating natural scents made from botanical essences and absolutes that we are just mad for!

In the tradition of old world luxury but with a modern sensibility, the ingredients in these fragrances are organic or wildcrafted, without compromising the quality of the perfume. Even their alcohols and carrier oils are certified organic.   Wonder what’s lurking in your current perfume, and worse, what it can do to you? Check out this article (remember, a diva is ALWAYS fully informed.)

More reasons we are totally in love with this new line? Each of Tallulah Jane’s gorgeous vintage scents are mixed in small casks to maintain purity and left to macerate before pouring. Many of their ingredients are rare and grown seasonally so mass production is difficult, making each vintage that much more unique.   You won’t smell these perfumes on every other girl at the club.

Go for their classic perfumes or their complimenting body oil scents.   Each 128mL bottle is crafted from a blend of organic jojoba oil, pomegranate seed oil, camelina oil, meadowfoam seed oil and vitamin E oil which is then scented with one of the perfumes. They can be worn alone (yum!) or along with their partnering perfurme for a stronger, more long-lasting linger.

Your delicious options;

TALLULAH: Creamy jasmine notes flirt with  heady tuberose for a scent that is  timeless yet nouveau.

GOTHAM: Equal parts Bloomsbury and Bay of Bengal, this scent is a blend of exotic spices and rose, rounded off with the earthy depth of patchouli.

333: An exquisite triple threat: three different types of chamomile and lavender are combined with three essences of citrus tree; neroli, petitgrain and bitter orange. The result? An elegantly patrician fragrance with more than a hint  of attitude.

And you know how cool we are.. we don’t just TELL you about our favorite new products.   We hook you up with the mad discounts AND chances to win freebies!  Visit www.tallulahjanenyc.com and enter the code GGA2020 when checking out, for a 20% discount that will automatically be applied to the entirety of your order.     PERFECTLY in time for Valentine’s Day. What could be a better gift for the lovely in your life?

Wanna win your choice of one perfume and its complimenting body oil? Make sure you’re subscribed to Girlie Girl Army then leave a comment BELOW telling us why you don’t have to be cruel to be kind! We’ll choose the most inspiring response and send the winner a bottle of their choice of perfume and body oil. Two runners up  will receive a sample box of our three perfumes.

Tallulah Jane can also be found at Spirit Beauty Lounge and at Georgia, located at 89A Houston St in NYC.

Sniff that.

    Kindness of heart and in action always makes for the best experiences. Kindness is as kindness does – in everything we do, beauty included!

    Fortunately, you don’t have to be cruel to be kind, or to be hot. The first thing I notice about a person is not their makeup or their clothes, but their smile, their warmth, their energy. Beautiful, kind-hearted people positively glow and attract you to them and make you feel good when you’re around them. Think of the Dalai Lama or Sharron Gannon these people don’t need botox or surgery. Their loveliness radiates through their face and makes a much bigger impact than any cosmetic ever could. The same thing goes for people who may have all the wealth and accoutrements in the world but are miserable it’s like a dark cloud is hanging over their otherwise gorgeous heads and you just can’t bring yourself to envy them. Fashion magazines never mention this but it’s true: inner beauty translates into outer beauty, but perfect looks can’t substitute for a happy soul.

    Thanks for the links to the list of companies that have pledged to not use this stuff. Too bad about company secrets. Guess we have to use our pocketbooks to give a heave-ho to that arcane stinky notion. It is difficult to look up every ingredient in a product especially if it is a secret….Thanks!

  5. Chloe says:

    Anita: That’s why we only use all natural products that disclose ALL ingredients! Use the GGA search engine for whatever you are looking for, and you will find it! :)

  6. Georgie says:

    Whether something is “cruel” or “kind” all depends on our personal interpretation of a situation. The concepts of cruelty and kindness are also not simply black and white, but rather a sliding scale. It is all in the mind – Focus on the positives and benefits in a given situation and any seeming cruelty will be soon forgotten.

  7. Kendra says:

    When people ask me what I look for in Mr. Right I always say kindness. They normally respond with “don’t you care about what he looks like? how smart he is? if he is ambitious?” and the list goes on and on. My response is always that kindness comes first and it is surprisingly hard to find. If someone does not have that innate tenderness, compassion, and kindness directed towards both animals and people, then I need not waste my time. Kindness is the best aphrodisiac.

  8. Kayla says:

    I don’t have to be cruel and use eggs and cows’ milk butter when I’m kind and make delicious baked goods for my family and friends (and for the Vegan Bake Sale for Haiti this weekend in SF!) because I use Earth Balance and natural egg replacers like apple sauce and tofu. When people eat my cinnamon rolls, cookies, breads, and cakes–they never guess who cruelty-free my kindness is! (And then after they proclaim its divinity, I tell them).

  9. Marla says:

    Every day I wake up inspired to be the best person I can be for all living beings. When I start to feel hopeless or angry about the cruelty in the world, I take a deep breath and remember how essential it is that I feel empowered as an agent of positive change. Living the vegan lifestyle is the smartest, most powerful resource I have: it’s putting my values into compassionate action with my life. It is as simple as that. I give thanks every day for this opportunity to not accept the status quo but forge my own path of creative, compassionate living.

  10. Susan K says:

    You don’t have to do product testing on animals or use animal based products to end up with beauty products that are kind to your skin :)

  11. Cara says:

    Thanks for finding this! I shared the solid perfume blog you posted with every vegan gal I know, most of us are clueless about all of these wonderful companies!

    I know many of the ingredients for makeup and perfume are tested on rabbits which as a rabbit owner (RIP Rudy) was particularly heartbreaking for me…looking into his sweet little face knowing his species was tortured at labs all over for cosmetics was appalling. To have cruelty free options makes me feel like its ok want to be pretty again!

  12. Bridget says:

    Of course, you don’t need to be cruel to be kind because that just wouldn’t be kind. If you eat, use or wear products that have been embodied with animal cruelty (or any cruelty, really) than you will have the stench of that cruelty; and we all know that doesn’t smell good!

  13. Stefanie says:

    You do not have to be cruel to be kind. It goes to show that things/food can be made and used without having to put the lives of animals in danger. It grosses me out to think there can be hidden animal “parts” in something that is suppose to smell pretty.

  14. April Oh says:

    Thanks, Chloe! I hadn’t heard of this company before. It is soooo hard to find fragrances that are kind, non-toxic, and actually smell good. I can’t wait to try these. Only wish we could pick and choose our samples instead of dropping $25 for the 3-pack sampler. Sadly (sob, snif, sob), I don’t live in NY anymore – or I would be at the Tallulah Jane shop in a NY minute to smell everything in person. I’ve wasted so much money “sampling” fragrances from other natural companies by mail only to be disappointed. Fingers crossed! :)

  15. Thanks! These sound fab. I cant wait to try Gotham and 333!

  16. Steph says:

    why don’t you “have to be cruel to be kind”? huh? you mean what you don’t have to be cruel to smell awesome, or look awesome, or have a fun glam life etc etc? Because of companies like Tallulah Jane, that’s why!
    More people demand cruelty-free products, the market (and kind-hearted souls) respond!
    I have two daughters..best thing I can do for the world and all of us on it is teaching them you don’t have to sacrifice fun, beauty and all around coolness just because you don’t want to support cruelty! Yuo really CAN have it all!

  17. J.Rose says:

    for perfume lovers, Le Labo is a cruelty-free perfume, with one of the two owners being vegan. they’re based in NYC (nolita), however they also have a store in LA (on west 3rd street), plus sell at some barneys locations. http://www.lelabofragrances.com

  18. Linda O. says:

    We are very fortunate to live in a time when there are so many food, clothing, cosmetic, gift options available to us that living compassionate, cruelty-free lives is easy, affordable and sexy! Being kind extends beyond consumerism and is hopefully at the core of our very beings. Taking 2 minutes to smile at someone who is sad, not getting aggressive behind the wheel at the person who just cut you off in traffic, dropping off supplies for victims of natural disasters or those in need — all these little choices we make on a daily basis add up and enriches not only the quality of our lives but others’, too — making our little ripples that impact the world on an individual level. All of this inevitably leads to adventures, fantastical days and is why I don’t have to be cruel to be kind!

  19. Naomi says:

    You don’t have to be cruel to be kind, although you DO have to like Nick Lowe with such fabulous beauty products and fashion made without animal testing (or animal skin or fur or “by-products” whatever that means), there’s no reason to support companies that choose cruelty.

  20. laura says:

    You have to be kind to be kind, and your website makes it so easy for us! Thank you, thank you, Thank you!!

  21. Michele Erez says:

    Its so great that there are so many animal friendly goodies out there, thanks for sharing so many ideas/products/discounts w/us vegans all over the world! ;0) Michele

  24. […] this is some scary and dangerous stuff, which is why we switched to all natural fragrances like Tallulah Jane years ago.  Making your own custom scent is frankly couture, like with having a unique name, […]
