From Providence Perfume Co, solid perfume balms: "Our vintage inspired solid perfume balms are blended in a base of pure shea butter, beeswax and oils. The soft buttery consistency is similar to the vintage solid perfumes popular in the 1950's and 1960's without the added petroleum and chemicals of the era. Solid perfumes are generously sized at 1/2 ounce and housed in thick retro glass tubs with distinctive silver caps evoking images of dressing table glamour. Solids are lavishly perfumed with natural ingredients and blended in artisan perfume fashion." In Chiffonade, Jazmina, Lilium, Moonflower, $36-39 at Providence Perfume Co.

From Lisa Hoffman, a scented bracelet in the Tunisian Neroli fragrance: "Red jade juxtaposed with a 14-karat gold-plated charm and beads echoes the intoxicating scent of Tunisian Neroli, a blend of precious neroli flower, ylang ylang and golden amber that’s both classically feminine and utterly modern. Each bracelet comes with refillable fragrance beads so you can easily refresh the scent in your charm. It's perfume, we just reinvented the packaging." $65 at Lisa Hoffman.
From By Kilian, Beyond Love in a mirrored solid perfume compact: "An irresistible seduction potion that gradually unfolds for a stunning effect.
