One of the tricks I learned from working at a beauty store is that your perfume can come in many forms: eau de parfum, eau de toilette, perfume oil, and my favorite:solid perfume. The reason I love solid perfume so much is that it is the longest lasting form of a perfume, works on a sort of “time release” schedule, and its small enough to throw in my purse. Best of all, I don’t have to stress out over whether or not it will cause oil stains in my purse, or if I will break the bottle. The solid perfumes that I purchased come in a small metal tin, clearly labeled and easy to apply.
Solid Perfume is made of beeswax, when it’s introduced to the temperature of your skin it will melt into it. As your body heats up throughout the day, it will emit all the different bases of the perfume. One of the best brands of solid perfume that i’ve tried is Doctor Sweet Tooth’s. Right now, because it’s spring, I decided to go with Floral Bloom. This one actually doesn’t even smell like flowers, which is great because I have such bad allergies in the spring when it comes to flowers (and cut grass!). Flower Bloom has some floral notes- freesia, jasmine, orchid and rose- but it also has orange, bergamot, tea- all blended with patchouli. It doesn’t sound like something I would ever use, but when I smelled a sample of it I fell in love with it! I also loved the Rock Candy Star, which is a lush dupe and has an infusion of bubblegum, berries, vanilla and soda pop. My all time favorite scent, as many of you have read, is the Conversation Hearts which has peach, sweet tarts, raspberry, orange, and vanilla. It really is amazing!!
I also just purchased some from Skinny Dip Soaps- so you will see a review of that in the coming weeks! 🙂
