The goal of this certification program is to ensure that consumers can differentiate between synthetic and pure, natural fragrances.
The IPF’s mission is “to protect and revitalize the culture of perfume and its heritage in order to reconnect human society with the beauty and beneficial powers of nature”.
Like all IPF-certified natural fragrance retailers, Les Nouveaux Comptoirs Olfactifs follows the ethics of the New Luxury Code.
Natural and traditional perfumery has existed for more than 5000 years, synthetic perfumery or “modern” perfumery: 150 years. A natural perfume is essentially composed of flowers and plants. It does not include any synthetic molecule. These plants and flowers are picked and transformed by the perfumer or by a grower, who is also a certified producer of essential oils. A natural perfumer does not use any alcohol denatured by phthalates which are endocrine disruptors. They spend more time in nature than in their laboratory, know the properties of plants and respect the new code of luxury. New Luxury Code” (RTBF)
