Ok, raise your hands — how many of you have wanted to backhand the person in the elevator who is enveloped in an overpowering cloud of perfume/cologne? I have to admit, this happened to me last weekend and it took total self-control not to assault that woman. I think it helped that I couldn’t breathe so I had no strength, anyway. But it made me think of my beloved Bella Solid Fragrance from The Soap and Paper Factory, my favorite retro line. The Solid Fragrances ($18) come in 21 different scents and I have several that are always in rotation, including Midnight, Orange Blossom, and Bella.
Love, love, love the packaging…every scent has its own gorgeous design that is definitely swoon-worthy. The Soap and Paper Solid Fragrance is made from jojoba, beeswax, and fragrance and comes in that uniquely beautiful ½ ounce tin. Just swipe some on a finger and place behind ears, inside wrists, and behind knees to smell fantastic without knocking anyone else over with too strong of a scent. You can even use this as a pomade for your hair, which smooths flyaways and perfumes your locks at the same time.
Bella is a wonderfully fresh scent that is a combination of bergamot, grapefruit, and black pepper. It smells fantastic, yet it’s subtle. It certainly won’t hit everyone over the head when you step into an elevator, but people will walk away from you thinking ‘wow, she smells GOOD’. If you love the Bella scent, it’s also available in bar soap, hand cream, and a pretty tin candle.
Be sure to take a look at some of the many other unique fragrances in the Solid Fragrances, like Skull, Stallion, and Boot. You will love these for travel and for your purse, and the other passengers on your next elevator ride will love you for your beautiful but subtle fragrance. – Lisa
