No doubt, oil is having a moment in the beauty world. From cleansing oils to facial oils to hair oils, beauty oils and their many benefits have finally gone mainstream. Now, perfume oils are the latest oil poised to be the next big thing.

What are perfume oils?

Often when people think of perfume oil, patchouli and other single-note essential oils come to mind. But perfume oils have come a long way, now offering complex fragrance combinations that rival classic perfumes. And unlike most spray fragrances, perfume oils are alcohol-free, so they tend to be more highly concentrated and longer lasting. The fragrance notes deepen throughout the day instead of quickly fading like classic perfumes.

Why choose a perfume oil over a classic spray?

Perfume oils typically come in rollerball form, so you can control exactly where the perfume is applied (on the pulse points, obvs). They're ideal for layering and, unlike a traditional spritz where you walk around in a cloud of scent, perfume oils are more subtle and focused.

As if the long-lasting scent wasn't enough, perfume oils are less irritating than sprays, largely due to the absence of alcohol, making them an absolute dream for sensitive skin. What's more, oils are hydrating and help enhance the skin's moisture barrier while adding a delicious scent. Not to mention, rollerballs are ideal for travel and on-the-go touchups as there's no risk of spillage and they easily fit in even the smallest bag.
