Every woman wants to feel special and wearing a favorite fragrance always sets the tone. Wearing a nice fragrance makes women (and men)  feel confident, attractive, and sexy and is a proven mood enhancer.

Perfumes can also trigger happy memories, which is why some women wear their mother's signature scent. Wearing perfume doesn't just make you smell better, it makes you feel better too.

For the millions of people living with perfume sensitivity, finding a nice scent can be rather difficult. Most perfumes are synthesized from the fragrance industry’s 3,100 stock chemical ingredients and which ones are used to make a particular scent is a closely guarded secret.

But the fragrance industry is changing and established companies are adding natural scents to their lines. Using all-natural, organic beauty and scent products from ethical and green companies is the latest rage.

If you want to give all-natural perfumes a try, here are a few fantastic scents to get you started.
