A perfume, candle, and fragrance brand that I get asked about a lot is Dossier. Best known for having a wide-range of scents comparable to many of the best-selling expensive brands out there. Not only do they claim to have your favorite scents at a better price, but also to be cruelty-free and fully vegan too.
I have been so curious about Dossier for a long time. I kept hearing nothing but great things about the brand and its fragrances. So what’s going on with Dossier? Does Dossier test on animals? Is Dossier vegan? If you want to learn more about this buzzed-about perfume brand, this is the place to be.

A bit more about Dossier:
As a brand, the goal of Dossier was to make fragrance something that everyone could have. There are so many very sought-after fragrances out there. Many of the brands making them are not considered to be cruelty-free, but a lot of them are also very expensive. Dossier wanted to create a solution by offering cruelty-free versions of perfumes at a lower price.
“Dossier was founded out of a desire to make premium fragrances accessible to everyone. As scent enthusiasts ourselves, it became impossible for us to turn a blind eye to the price markups traditionally seen in the industry. Whether it be marking up scents because of celebrity endorsement fees or pricey packaging, we realized perfumes were being sold for way more than they cost to make.”
They make versions of lots of different perfumes and fragrances. You can buy individual bottles or sets. Dossier also has candles on the way. I assume that they will be made to match some or all of their scents.
What I like about Dossier is that they have a huge variety of scents. It’s not just a handful of floral and beachy scents, but a variety of fragrances with so many notes to choose from.
Perfume is such a personal preference. Our body chemistry can also impact how it smells on you. What you like on someone else, or in a bottle, you might not like on yourself after the scent warms up. Because of this, Dossier has a great return policy. If you buy a bottle and decide that it’s not for you, you can return it for a refund. Returns are donated to charity so the bottle isn’t wasted.
