Sure, the greenest option is to wear a certified organic perfume that’s free of harsh chemicals or artificial anything, or to wear nothing at all! But if you love a conventional fragrance, there’s one thing you can do to make it better for you: Wear the solid version. Spray scents use chemicals called phthalates, which help fragrances last longer. Phthalates are hormone disrupters that have been linked to cancer, and many people are choosing to avoid them. Solid scents let you apply directly to your skin, which lessens the risk of harm the perfume can cause your system.
