Synthetic

We give the preference to essential oils but, from Ernest Beaux creator of Chanel 5 in 1921, a perfume is not 100% natural. Synthetic has taken its place provided that only controlled scents are used. As plants (for example: hyssop, yew...) are prohibited, some synthetic are prohibited too. Therefore we give the preference to natural alcohol.
