What is soft perfume?
At its core, Soft Perfume is the fusion of the art of high-end perfumery with the science of natural skincare. All our fragrances are alcohol, paraben and paraffin free. The olfcatory compisitions are the creations of our master class perfumers with whom we work hand-in-hand to create high quality and complex scent compositions.
The “skincare” quality of our perfumes is what enables us to name them Soft Perfume. Their cosmetic bases are completely natural composed of ingredients selected for their virtues for the skin. Sabé Masson offers 3 different cosmetic base compositions:
- A cosmetic base with Shea Butter, nourishing and healing. (Cosmetic base with ivory color). – Vegan
- A cosmetic with Tiara Oil, hydrating and soothing for the skin. (Cosmetic base with a light orange color).
- A cosmetic base with Mango Butter and Tamanu Oil, antioxidant and regenerating. (Cosmetic base with a light pink color).
Some of our Solid Soft perfumes can also be found in liquid versions with new fragrances coming soon. Our Liquid Skincare Perfumes are a complex innovation also alcohol-free as well as being solvent free.
Are your products Vegan?
A selection of our products are indeed Vegan. 6 of our Solid Soft Perfumes are vegan but also our Soaps & Hand and Body Balms. For the Vegan Solid Soft Perfumes they can be recognized by their light yellow shea butter cosmetic base.
The vegan selection is as follows:
- Striptease Flowers
- Un Bon Petit Diable
- Après La Pluie Le Beau Temps
- Les Petites Filles Modèles
Our hand and body balms and engraving soaps are also vegan and palm oil free.
Our Soft Perfumes with Mango butter & tamanu oil and also Tiara oil are not yet vegan because they contain carmine. This ingredient has been removed from our formulas and starting at the end of 2020, we will be a 100% vegan brand. However, all our products are cruelty-free and we are in the process of being labeled « EVE VEGAN » one of Europe’s most renowned labels.
Do you test on animals?
Absolutely not, we are a cruelty free brand. Our products are all tested dermatologically. None are tested on animals. We do not distribute in China for this reason.
I have sensitive skin, is your product okay to use?
Our Soft Perfumes are suitable for all skin types. They are dermatologically tested, which means that we have led rigorous tests for skin tolerance and the non-toxicity of our products. All of this is included in our regulatory folders that we revise regularly and take very seriously.
When it comes to risk of allergy, it is always a possibility, even the most natural products can react to different ingridients. Some skins even have allergies with products that are not considered as allergens or develop allergies at a later date. There are many variables to take into account.
However, seeing as our Soft Perfumes are alcohol free, this lowers the risk of allergies and skin irritation. We can never fully exclude this possibility. We encourage you to read the composition of the fragrance before purchasing. If in any doubt you may want to consult your dermatologist or doctor.
Are your perfumes Suitable during pregnancy? Safe for children?
It is not recommended during pregnancy to spray your perfume on your skin as the alcohol it contains may penetrate your placenta. Indeed, our Soft Perfumes are without alcohol and paraben so they are much safer, however, they do contain traces of essential oils. We would encourage you to see your doctor on this subject before using your Soft Perfume. If you were to use a Soft perfume during pregnancy, we would recommend using a light fragrance such as Copacabana or Après la pluie le beau temps.
Soft Perfumes must be kept out of reach for children (under 4). However, our fragrances are perfectly safe to use on children (with adult supervision).
Some of our bestsellers for children are:
- Les petites filles modèles
- Parisian Rhapsody
What is the shelf life of Solid Soft Perfume? And Liquid Soft Perfumes?
As our cosmetic compositions are natural the shelf life can be a little shorter than most cosmetics you may use.
The shelf life of our solid Soft Perfumes is 12 months after opening. If the product has not been opened and the top not removed it can be kept up to 3 years if the storage conditions are adequate.
For the liquid Soft Perfumes, after opening the product keeps for 6 to 12 months, if not opened shelf life is of 2 years under certain storage conditions.
As stated on the packaging for Solid Soft perfumes they must be kept under 45°C / 113°F and above freezing. As for the liquid Soft Perfumes they must be kept at room temperature between 10°C / 50°F and 30°C / 86°F – Keep out of direct sunlight and intense light.
If the product is not used within the first month of purchase we can't be help responsible for any recation as we would not know in what conditions the perfumes may have been stored in.
Do you offer product samples?
Unfortunately, we do not yet send out product samples individually.
Being a small intimate brand the costs of sending out sample would be too high to cover for us.
We hope to offer this possibility in the near future for both our solid & liquid versions.
Where and how do I apply Soft Perfume?
Solid Soft Perfumes offer a new way of applying perfume, more personal, more sensual: A slide of fragrance.
You can apply your Solid Soft Perfume on tension points such as the wrists, the neck or along the breastbone. Why these areas? Because it’s on these tension points that you can feel your heartbeat, thus enabling your fragrance to better diffuse. Your body temperature is warmer on these points causing the Solid Soft Perfumes’ cosmetic base to better combine with your skin.
If you are feeling more creative you can slide your fragrance along the sides of your nose this way you have your own olfactory bubble! But you can also apply to your temples or the forehead.
The only areas that we would not recommend using the perfume is around the eye area and also on the lips. Soft Perfume is a different form of perfume but still perfume so the fragrance may cause irritation if applied to these areas.
You will soon get used to this new gesture, this new ritual... It is then up to you to invent your own slide of Soft Perfume, your new way of wearing perfume.
When it comes to Liquid Soft Perfume please be aware that these fragrances are oil based, so they can stain when apllied too close to clothing. As our Liquid Soft Perfumes have skin nourishing properties we do recommend applying directly on the skin, then rubbing the oils in so you can benefit from the natural virtues offered by the various oils. You could apply to clothing but please spray at a distance infront of you and walk through the mist of frangrance as opposed to spraying towards yourself. You can also apply you Liquid Soft Perfume on your hair as the oils will replenish hair health.
Where are your products made?
Sabé Masson is “Proudly Made In France” - we work with French suppliers and partners, that we select to guarantee high-end products, and to be respectful of our vital eco-system: the environment, fauna and flora.
Can I use Soft Perfume before exposing myself to sunlight ?
Any sun exposure* after having applied perfume is strongly disencouraged, the alcohol contained in perfume concentrate can cause depigmentation of the skin or other epidermal reactions.
Our Soft Perfumes are alcohol free, however, the perfume concentrate they contain (10%) may present some organic-sensitizing materials, we advise you to never fully expose yourself to sunlight when wearing your soft Perfume. On the other hand, during a regular sunny urban day, you can perfectly use them.
It is a continuous exposition with the willingness to tan that is not recommended with any form of perfume.
* Please be careful when exposing yourself to the sun, protect your skin by using a strong sunscreen.
Do you have any male fragrances?
All of our fragrances are in fact unisex, however due to the different hints of fragrance that compose each perfume some have a tendancy to be prefered by women and other liked by men.
Even if some designs look more feminine than others, the magic of perfume is that when applied to the skin it creates a different alchemy with each person. Even a very feminine perfume base can evolve with a different smell from skin to skin.
With a large range of 19 Soft Perfumes, almost every olfactory family is represented at Sabé Masson! Here are a few fragrances that seem to be the most “appreciated” by men:
- - Artist: An androgynous woody chypre
- - Macadam Paz: A smoky woody oriental
- - Georges et Moi : A spicy woody floral
- - Lucky Bay : A spicy woody chypre
- - Zazou : A bright floral orange blossom
How long do your fargrances last?
This does vary depending on your usage habits. A Solid Soft Perfume is around 300 applications on the skin, but of course, it will depend on the way you are using it.
Our regular clients purchase a Soft Perfume every 3 to 6 months. Once to twice a year for the liquid Soft Perfumes.
