When it comes to fragrances, we’re truly spoilt for choice – there’s everything from sweet florals to woody ouds and so much more. A few months ago, I stood waiting in an airport security line with an arm of overflowing liquids – all of which I hoped security would turn a blind eye to. Sadly, I had to part ways with a few of my favourite products, including one of my favourite summer scents.
Reflecting on the situation, I realised I needed to cut down on liquid items in the future and choose compact sizing – that’s when I was introduced to the wonders of solid fragrances. While rollerballs and travel-sized fragrances already exist, having a fragrance in solid form means not having to worry about making space in your carry-on luggage or wondering about any accidental spillage in your new bag.
And with summer in full swing, it’s another opportunity to create new memories with our favourite signature scents.
