Pacifica {solid perfume} + giveaway

I’m a finicky perfume wearer. I love when people can smell it, I hate when it’s too strong and I get annoyed with it’s too soft. Maybe I just have issues. The thing is, I absolutely hate the smell of alcohol under perfumes. It gives me such a headache. So for me, I try to find more oil based perfumes because the scents are more natural and they last. I came across Pacifica’s solid perfumes while reading a favorite magazine claiming it was a dual purpose product. They instantly got my attention. they claimed the perfumes could easily be stashed in a purse or even a pocket to not only add a mid-day perfume application or even to tame frizzies in your hair. Now that’s a multi-tasker.

Pacifica products are made using the finest, consumer-safe and sustainable raw materials, including natural ingredients and essential oils. Their products are free of parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates and lead wicks. They’re also a very green company, making their packaging both recyclable and made with recycled content. The company reuses and reduces wherever possible to reduce their carbon footprint.Pacifica is working towards carbon neutrality and is 100% committed to cruelty-freedom. In this regard, the company does not use any animal ingredients, including beeswax, and does not test its formulations on animals or use ingredients that are currently tested on animals.

So this was really my first time ever using a solid perfume. Like mentioned previously, I love my sprays and oils. The oils just tend to intensify with the heat of the body, and they last forever. The Pacifica solid perfumes go on very light. Light enough that I allow my 4 year old to wear it as well. The scents are subtle enough to where you will smell them, but you won’t overpower a room. I’d say they last about four hours, so you’ll need to re-apply them throughout the day. For people like me, who swim in the afternoon, this is a good thing, since all my perfume wears off after a dip anyways. As for the fly-aways, I’m pretty impressed because it actually does work! I’m totally bringing my solid perfume to Chicago with me next month, my hair will be as huge as ever with the humidity. This will be my secret weapon!
