Imagine unzipping your bag to spritz on perfume, only to find that your signature scent's bottle had mysteriously uncapped itself and spilled. Whenever this sort of thing happens, we never really know what to cry over first: the loss of our perfume or our soaked purse. Luckily, this nightmare is easy to dodge by toting a more travel-friendly option instead. Introducing, solid perfumes!
In case you've never tried them before, solid fragrances are basically perfumes pressed into a balm. This means they're complete spill-proof and perfect for traveling. Apply them like you would a lip balm for that mid-day refresh!
Where can I find solid perfume brands?
