I don’t write reviews but felt this was necessary in case it may help anyone who was looking for a perfume with no chemicals, only an essential oil blend. If I can give a zero stars review I would as this is not an essential oil perfume, but rather a regular chemical perfume of unknown fragrance chemicals and then a few drops of essential oils to misguide ya. I wanted to like this perfume because I’m trying to avoid harmful chemicals but unfortunately this product scored an 8 (which is the worst score) on the think dirty app. Meaning it is not healthy for you, how come you may ask, they are made with essential oils... but this is were they make a fool of us. It is not just an essential oil blend, it is chemicals ... and then with essential oils. They are not transparent I tried contacting the company to find out what is their fragrance ingredients list, as a consumer, we are paying money, the least they can do is let us know what we are putting on our largest organ, our skin, no luck contacting them. Here I asked the questions on their ask a question tab, and their response was basically “our fragrance is proprietray” meaning they will not disclose all the chemical list of chemical fragrances that is combined to come up with this perfume. It is not ONLY made with essential oils, it is made of chemicals, then they added a few essential oils so that they may say “made WITH essential oils”. Huge difference. Pacífica perfume scored the best on the think dirty app, and they are very transparent about the perfume ingredients.
