I’m one of those girls who is obsessed with smelling just right – I love perfume, scented moisturizer and even tropical deodorants. But the problem with being a city girl in the summertime is that the last thing I want to do is lug around a big bottle of perfume as I explore the city…
So how can I smell fresh and lovely without carrying anything extra? Enter Perfumies, a solid perfume stick that is no bigger than a tube of lipgloss. As an added bit of ‘fantastic’, it won’t break or spill in your hot pink summer handbag, or whatever you’re carrying around the city.
My favourite so far is the tropical smelling Stardust. It’s light and fragrant and matches my sea salt body wash in a way that makes me feel like I’m constantly on vacation. The New York based Perfumies is available in 95 paraben free, sans preservatives scents that have never been tested on anything cute and fuzzy; and if you like shopping on Etsy you can visit Perfumies there and purchase your way to a TSA-approved scent.
Having traveled recently, I can’t tell you how great it is to know that my perfume won’t get tossed because it’s just ever so slightly over the liquid regulation; with Perfumies I can carry several sticks in my purse without ever worrying that they will be confiscated by security. With visits to New York and San Francisco in my future, Perfumies will be with me a lot this summer – they’re perfect for a day trip to the island or a business trip to New York. It’s a good thing I can buy five unique scents for only $30.
I found Perfumies through Beauty Box Five which is a monthly subscription service that delivers amazing beauty product samples straight to your door. Check them out and lavish some attention on yourself.
