What to look for when selecting a pet perfume

So you've discovered perfume for pets and decided to give it a try. There is a vast difference between a pet perfume and a pet deodoriser. Pet perfume, or "fine fragrance" contain a blend of quality ingredients and is used primarily on a dog's coat. Pet deodorisers contain single ingredients like tea tree oil or eucalyptus oil, functioning primarily as a repellent to be used beds, clothes or carpets.

They have varying degrees of success, but are a cheap product with a different function to pet perfume or "fine fragrance". The function of fine fragrance is not to primarily mask odours, or to eliminate bad smells from your dog's bed. One of the uses of fine fragrance, is to enhance or elongate the freshly clean scent after a bath.  You wouldn't use dog perfume to deodorize your dog, just as you wouldn't use human perfume as a deodorant either.

In the case of Velvet Alabaster, you wouldn't be able to find this fine fragrance in your typical supermarket beside the cheap tea-tree repellent spray on the bottom shelf. You would be more likely to find it alongside the human fine fragrance section, as per the photo above.

Once you have the purpose in mind, whether you are after a deodorizing spray or something more extravagant, there are really only a few considerations to make. The main one, and the most important, is to check if the ingredients are safe. Not all brands are like Velvet Alabaster. Our products contain ingredients that are completely biodegradable and safe for use on dogs. The canine edition has been developed especially for use on a dog's coat and even their sensitive skin.

The only other consideration you would need make is the type of fragrance to select. At the time of writing, there are two selections. The "Black Velvet" or the "Pink Velvet". Black Velvet has a spicy cedarwood scent, a very confident fragrance a bold blend of ingredients including lemon and saffron. Typically, this is a masculine scent, but many customers use it on their female dogs as well.

The Pink Velvet has a more fresh, fruity scent. It has a base of musk, yellow rose and passionfruit that is quite feminine in nature. Whether you choose the Black Velvet or the Pink Velvet is simply up to personal preference. 

Velvet Alabaster, once again, is free from preservatives, parabens, heavy metals, aluminum and is of course cruelty free, and that's our promise to you.
