Hey y'all! Today I have my new favorite fragrance to share with you. With the first "official" day of summer just around the corner, this is the perfect time for a new scent.
Gardenia is one of my favorite floral scents, behind tulips and roses. I always think of it as the flower of the south along with magnolia's. It has a light and sweet smell, and this solid perfume definitely carries that lightness with it. It's not overpowering as many other gardenia scented products I've tried and owned.
The Soap & Paper Factory is based in New York where their products are hand crafted, never tested on animals, organic whenever possible, and packaging is recycled.
I received the solid perfume in Gardenia and it is totally going to be used daily. In fact, as I'm typing this post up I can't stop picking it up to smell it.
The packaging on this is SUPER cute. This comes in a 0.5oz plastic jar that is thin enough so you don't have to dig your fingers in to get the product out once you start putting a dent in it. It's the perfect size for your make-up bag or purse as it won't take up too much space. It starts out strong, but light and I did find that I needed to reapply a few hours later....but with this being so light and tiny you won't have a problem killing your co-workers and friends once you do. It absorbs quickly into the skin and isn't greasy at all, so you don't have to worry about getting it everywhere.
This also has very few ingredients: Helianthus Annus Seed Oil, Cera Alba, Fragrance (Parfum), Benzyl Syalicylate, Benzyl Benzoate, Linalool, Isoeugenol, and Cinnamyl Alcohol.
They also carry a wide variety of candles, hand creams, solid perfume & fragrances, soaps, eau de parfum, bubble bath, and lip butters in some amazing looking scents. I want to try ALL THE PRODUCTS they offer.
Be sure to go check them out & pick one of their solid scents up with some shea butter hand cream to take care of your phalanges :D
