L'Occitane Solid Perfume

Wearing perfume on hot days has to be very careful. In the winter, a lush and heavy fragrance probably works right. In the summer, however, it will only overwhelm in the heat and becomes too cloying. Especially on hot days when perfume blends with sweat, just imagine how gross can that be? The smell could be so foul that it causes headaches for victims around you. So, it is a no-no for hot weather like today, 96F, wearing a strong perfume.

You should opt for a lighter fragrance that will make you more adorable when temperature is 90 degrees or higher. Other than conventional light perfume, solid perfume from L'Occitane is a good alternative for summer. L'Occitane Solid Perfume is one of my favorite summer fragrances. I especially love the Green Tea Solid Perfume ($9) and Rose-Eau des 4 Reines Solid Perfume ($8). The Green Tea Solid Perfume's crisp and clean notes smell refreshing and it is particularly good for wearing in the daytime. Rose-Eau des 4 Reines Solid Perfume, on the other hand, is gently floral and more sophisticated and feminine. I would wear it for evening occasions.

The solid perfume comes in a small size tin with alcohol-free scented balm. All you need to do is pat some on the wrists and neck. The perfume balm makes it easier to handle the amount of scent you feel like to wear and the size is so small that you can slip it in your purse. This is why I like about it.

I find that the scent last much longer then spray on perfume. But it is rather mild, I wonder if people around can actually sense it?

Hello Tongtong,

Thank you for stopping by!

I usually like to use these L'Occitane solid perfumes in warmer months of summer.

What I own currently are the green tea and the rose one. Both of them give me a light and mild impression. I am not sure if it is the reason I only dab a little amount on my neck and wrists. (I reapply it whenever I feel the scent is weak or gone.)

From my experiences, people around me don't actually sense the fragrance unless they stand or sit very very close to me. I love the way it gives me a soft and refreshing hint of fragrance on hot summer days.

How do you like the solid perfumes?

Hope to hear from you again!
