How do you define 'vegan'? Many people consider themselves a vegan based on their food choices. There are others that define themselves by what they don't use, like wool for example, or leather. For me personally, I try to live as kind to animals as possible.
The good news is that you can be kind to animals while on a budget! To that end we bring you a selection of the best vegan perfumes under $50. These natural fragrances are also cruelty, free smell just great and are just as long-lasting as some high-end offerings.
So enjoy going through your choices, knowing that no animals have been harmed in the manufacture of these perfumes.
