It’s a fact that most modern perfumes will not last as long as their traditional counterparts, which could apparently cling to fabric for days on end, thanks to the use of scent-adhering animal materials like ambergris and musk. Of course, trading longevity to spare an animal’s life is a no-brainer, and there are plenty of other ways to keep your scent on you throughout the day. If you’re the sort to prefer reapplications of scent, consider solid perfumes!
Solid perfumes are generally perfume oil encased in a solid alcohol-free balm that you can bring with you anywhere. They’ll never leak, break, spill, or get confiscated by airport security and application is as easy (and chic!) as a lip balm: dab a finger to pick up the scent and apply directly to skin, clothes, or hair. Or if you have one of the crayon-type solid perfumes, simply twist up and apply, hands-free!
So whether you want to touch up your scent for the day, or if you want your favourite fragrance with you as an aromatherapeutic pick-me-up on the go, these solid perfumes are a solid pick to keep in your bag!
