    Default Attar fragrances ----- viable option for skin alcohol allergy?

    Have started reading a little on altar in the forum archives and if I understood correctly they are created without alcohol.
    Do they become an alternative for those with skin allergies to alcohol? Anyone been in this predicament of loving fragrances but fighting allergic reactions?

    Any suggestions on Attar's to sample would be appreciated

    Attars and natural oils are a great option for someone with alcohol allergy. Nikkos-Oskol use a non-alcoholic solvent in their perfumes https://bloomperfume.co.uk/collections/nikkos-oskol.

    Here are some websites where you can get samples:

    Yes to problem with alcohol. But note that usually the allergy is not to alcohol, but to some ingredient in the perfume, so using attars doesn't solve the problem.

    Many of the Amouage attars are just wonderful, but unfortunately hard to sample. Surrender to Chance might still have a few on there i havent checked in awhile. Sultan Pasha i would 100% recommend getting a sample set, he does awesome work. Also Rising Phoenix, you can get sample sizes from etsy.

    Agree.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
