Solid Scents

We've never been a big "scent" collector, but our mother and grandmother loved their perfumes. Our mother went around the world twice, in 1956 and 1959, and she discovered a solid perfume compact that she adored and was always looking for her favorite.

Based on our mother's affinity for solid perfume, we thought we'd profile a new collection (disclaimer: we have not sampled these so we cannot personally vouch for its effectiveness or scent).

Here's information from the rep: Love, Me… Solid Perfume Compacts are a solid perfume compact shaped like a little book. Each decorated with artwork, an inspirational title and story, as well as a hidden pocket and combinations for designing an individual signature scent. Each of four perfumes compacts feature three different solid scents to wear alone, combine, layer and mix and match to create a new and individual scent signature.

Pure fragrances made with essential oils in a 100% natural base including beeswax and shea butter. No coloring agents, no parabens, no alcohol, no preservatives.

The available scent "booklets:"

Love, Me… On a Hot Tin Roof – The Fire Scents includes Wild, with notes of vanilla, amber, tangelo; Radiant, with notes of violet, lavender and pikake; and Sun, with notes of mandarin, grapefruit and sage.

Love, Me… In the Garden – The Earth Scents includes Earth, with notes of fresh cut grasses; Whisper, with notes of vanilla, musk, neroli and honey; and Sweetness, with notes of honeysuckle, rose and jasmine.

Love, Me…In the Rain – The Water Scents includes Inspiration, with notes of blue lotus blossom and lily of the valley; Rain, with notes of patchouli and hyacinth; and Fun, with notes of honey, vanilla and citron.

Love, Me…Under the Stars – The Air Scents includes Midnight, with notes of violet, sandalwood and tuberose; Coconut Moon, with notes of citrus, melon and ginger; and Laughter, with notes of pineapple, candy, and freesia.
