  1. Thank you so much for taking the time to post this. L'Artisan is one of my favorite houses so I definitely appreciate that. Wonder what Serge Lutens' status is?

  2. There are very few perfumes left with real, natural "stuff". Most animal notes used are reconstitutions ... at least for all big names in fragrance business. All old formulas are changed 100%. I don't even bother to put that question.

  3. Good to know, but I wonder if that includes ambergris, an animal ingredient that is still used in perfumery but often overlooked. (Even when harvested on the beach, ambergris is very rare; and consumer demand encourages whaling. Unfortunately true ambergris - although rare- is still not banned in perfumery)
    I would also like to know if an independent third party can verify that L'Artisan doesn't perform animal testing. (BUAV, PETA, Vegan- and/or Vegetarian Society-any of these?) since many companies falsely claim to be cruelty-free. I'd also like to know if they submit to Fixed Cut Off Date (and from which year?) I wish they would explain this in FAQ on their site, but there is none yet, but obviously many people would like to know! Lets hope they add more information soon.

  4. Yes, notice that L'artisan, like many manufacturers, say that their PRODUCTS are not tested on animals.
    What about the INDIVIDUAL INGREDIENTS then?
    Many companies 'try it on' with the product 'line'.
    What about animal testing on your individual ingredients then, L'artisan? Do you OR OTHER AGENTS test any of the individual ingredients of your fragrances?
    People - please do not be satisfied with the 'we are happy to say we do not test our products on animals' line from ANY company or manufacturer! If this is what they say, they deserve further grilling for the complete information.
