Why We Love This

“Winner of Best Clean Fragrance 2023 — If I could capture a calm meditative state in a bottle, it would be this scent.”

Everything Pause embodies, from the rich floral scent profile to the vibrant bottle design reflects Abel and Dr Fanny Grau's joint mission; to bring confidence and sophistication to the perimenopausal stage of womanhood.

About the Brand

Abel was born with mission is to create the world’s best natural perfume without compromising on ethics or aesthetics, and is a by-product of founder Frances Shoemack's failed search for a truly beautiful, all natural perfume. The more she learnt about the petrochemical-based industry and the toll it takes on not only us, but the environment, the more she realised that this was something she needed to do. So, she teamed up with Master Perfumer, Paris-based Isaac Sinclair, who would become her first ally in the quest to disrupt an industry that didn't believe natural perfume could be chic, modern, or stand up alongside the world's best.

Made from natural, plant-derived ingredients that are readily biodegradable in our ecosystem, all of Abel’s products are also vegan and cruelty-free with all ingredients ethically sourced. With a commitment to transparency that’s unconventional in the fragrance world, Abel provide a full list of ingredients for every product.

How to Use

The whole collection is gender neutral (unisex). Apply the perfume to warm skin, i.e. pulse points such as your neck, wrist, inner part of your elbows and the back of your knees.

To increase the life of your perfume on your skin, we recommend moisturising (with a fragrance free cream or oil) before you apply your perfume as the drier your skin, the more quickly it will absorb the fragrance oils. Perfume applied to your hair and / or clothes will last longer than perfume applied to your skin. Also reconsider where you apply your perfume – pulse points are good for the fragrance developing on your skin, however the inside of your wrists aren't ideal if you are typing on a computer all day or washing your hands regularly. When applied near your nose (i.e. your neck), you become desensitised quickly, so although others will smell your fragrance, you won’t.
