Do you ever take your big bottle of perfume with you? To work, to school, to the gym, or on a plane? Probably not, because it is cumbersome, can break or spill in your bag, and TSA unapproved. Perfumies’ solid perfume sticks solve all these problems…
Perfumies sells solid perfume sticks in a countless number of scents. This review is for the scent Afterglow: a blend of sandalwood, amber, musk and vanilla.
Perfumies’ solid perfume sticks come in small, plastic tubes about three (3) inches long. They have caps that slide off and bases that twist to push up the product as you use it. The packaging is feather-light and small, making these extremely convenient to take in your purse, luggage, or pocket.
The best thing about the Perfumies perfumes is the lack of any alcohol smell. Almost all liquid/spray perfumes are alcohol-based. If you are like me and are sensitive to the alcohol (either its smell or its irritation of the skin) in most perfumes, this is a wonderful alternative. These perfumes are wax and oil based, so they won’t cause the same kind of irritation. Plus, these perfume sticks are much easier to apply in a targeted way. They go on clear, but you might want to also rub them into the skin because sometimes you can see a streak where you’ve applied the perfume.
Afterglow is a warm, comforting smell–one that makes me think of curling up on a couch with a big blanket when it’s chilly outside. All of the notes in this fragrance are balanced, meaning I don’t distinctly smell any one of them over the others. The vanilla adds just a pinch of sweetness to this fragrance, but it’s much more on the sultry side than sweet.
This perfume has soft-to-medium strength. It’s not a scent that is easily picked up by people just walking by you. They’d have to be closer to really pick it up. After about three hours of wear, it fades gradually and is pretty much gone by the seven (7) hour mark.
The price is unbeatable for these perfumes. Just $7.00 for a stick that will last you a very long time.
