I am allergic to most fragrances. Some leave me with a headache after just a minute of two of being close to it. I love beautiful scents and was always on the lookout for a perfume I can wear. I love rose water but the fragrance doesn’t last more than a moment. I use it more as a face toner. I love the scent of roses. A friend of mine shared with me that it is a fragrance that acts as an antidepressant and is known to improve mood.
I found Pacifica’s Persian Rose Solid Perfume in a gift shop in Maui and was so excited to find out that it is available in most health food stores around the US. Most natural fragrances last only a few minutes but this one has pretty good staying power. I still like to apply it a few times in the day. It is the only fragrance I can wear. Some even use it as a natural deodorant alternative.
Their description of the scent: “Our blend of Bulgarian rose, subtle violet, myrrh and delicate fruit is a nod to the floral empire of the Persians, the kings of perfume in the 9th century. Spiritual, elegant and classic.” It is made out of 100% naturalsoy and coconut wax. The cost for a small tin of the perfume is $9.
