I adore perfume oils. I am the kind of girl that fragrances kind of disappear on after an hour or two and perfume oil is the perfect solution for that. Oils generally are more saturated in fragrance and they absorb instead of evaporating, like a standard perfume. I was really excited to try a couple of the perfume oils from Soap & Paper ($16 each).
Their hand creams have long been on my list of favorite things (FYI–They make excellent gifts! They are deeply moisturizing, smell like heaven and the graphics on the tubes is impossibly chic.) I’m officially adding their perfume oils to my list of favorites.
Founded in 2001, Soap & Paper began with soaps. After perfecting their craft, they expanded into hand creams, bubble baths, perfume oils, candles, scented drawer papers and so much more. When you use anything by Soap & Paper, you really get the sense that you are enjoying a real labor of love. So much care has gone into the designing of their line–from the products themselves to their incredibly gorgeous, eco-friendly packaging. If this brand isn’t on your radar, you need to check it out now.
I received both their Lavender and Verbena perfume oils to test. I love that one is a relaxing scent and the other one is energizing–these two are pretty much perfect for whatever mood you might be in. These perfume oils are crafted in small batches and according to Soap & Paper, they are designed to stimulate the mind, body and spirit. These are an experience, not just a fragrance, folks!
The Lavender perfume oil is the kind of scent you want to put on right before bed or whenever you just want to relax. It’s base note is lavender, which I find very soothing and clean, but the hints of bergamot and clove give it some warmth and complexity which takes a fragrance that could be boring and it makes it into something extraordinary.
The Verbena perfume oil practically screams “Summer!” to me–it is such a cheerful, lemony fragrance. When I wear it, I just feel like enjoying some sunshine and tackling whatever the world throws at me. I think it may be impossible to be in a bad mood when you smell like citrus-scented goodness. It’s pure joy in a bottle, y’all!
These fragrances are housed in roller ball bottles and contain about 1/3 fl. oz. of product, which means they are highly portable and perfect for travel. The stainless steel ball in the roller wand feels amazing when you refrigerate it–it really wakes you up when you use it first thing in the morning. Best of all? These scents last the better part of a day on me and when I need to reapply, these portable perfume oils stash easily in my purse.
Soap & Paper’s perfume oils are available in the following fragrances:
Verbena–Lemongrass, verbena, & citrus; uplifting
Lavender–Lavender, bergamot, & clove; relaxing
Gardenia–Gardenia, coconut, & citrus; sensual and romantic
Green Tea–Green tea, basil, & anise; refreshing
