The solid perfume is such a smart invention. Being compact, it is a fantastically portable, mini version of your favourite scent, but in a non-drying formulation that you can apply just about anywhere.

I always have a solid perfume on my person, either in my pocket or bag. They are are great for touch-ups on the go and even greater if you have sensitive skin like I do.

So imagine my joy when Maison 21G sent me a few of their newly launched solid scents to play with.

Like all Maison 21G products, these come beautifully packaged in a sleek black flip case that is small enough to pop into your pocket or clutch and stylish enough to place on your vanity. With a consistency of a shea butter, these scents are alcohol-free, made from 100% natural essences and are clean and cruelty-free.

You can apply these scents to just about anywhere on your body, from your neck and pulse points to your lips. The formulation is super nourishing and moisturising and does not smell like a traditional perfume, but more like a soft, subtle, creamy kiss of scent.

Each solid perfume by Maison 21G is priced at $40 for a 4ml zamak case, and $15 for a 2ml mini solid perfume in a glass jar in a solo scent of your choice. To find out more, go here.
