We’re calling it: solid perfumes are going to be big in the fragrance world over the next few years. Why? Well, they’re great for popping in your handbag, or packing on holiday, and they’re more sustainable.
As for the scent? Because all of those heavenly ingredients have been condensed down into a small bar, solid perfumes are often more concentrated and can last longer on the skin. Plus, unlike their liquid alternatives, they don’t contain alcohol. As we know, alcohol can be incredibly drying on the skin but solid perfumes are created by blending perfume oils with vegetable oils or beeswax.
When it comes to application, solid perfume is designed to be applied with fingertips directly onto skin. For a more fragrant application, apply to your pulse points and where your body gives off the most heat (that’s on your wrists, inside your elbows, at the base of your neck, behind your ears and your décolleté).
They offer a subtle and long-lasting scent and are often more portable than liquid perfumes, making them a great option for travel.
Most solid perfumes typically last somewhere between 2-4 hours.
Solid perfumes can come in various forms such as pots, tins, or sticks, and they can be found in a wide range of scents, from floral and fruity to spicy and woody.
They are also often made with natural ingredients, making them a popular choice for those who prefer more eco-friendly and sustainable beauty products.
