I am all about switching up my scents lately so I thought I would show you some of my favorite fragrance minis! I have a few perfumes that come in solid perfume or small bottle form so that is what I want to feature today. I love that they are very portable for my purse, but they would be great for your locker if you are back at school as well!

Soap & Paper Factory makes some of my favorite solid perfumes. I love the super cute packaging and the fragrances inside are pretty great too. You can dig in and apply to your pulse points or dig in really deep and use these as a pomade for your hair. I would probably only do that in a pinch, but they would actually work really well for that purpose considering they are made from pure jojoba and beeswax. I have given these away lots of times for gifts because at $18 they are the perfect price for gift giving without breaking the bank, and they are so pretty it’s hard not to love them!
Midnight has notes of jasmine, tuberose, and citrus and is inspired by a jasmine patch at the top of Dolores Park in San Francisco.
Spiced Orange has notes of neroli, orange, and anisette. It smells just how you would picture it- like orange and spices!
Skull is from a collaboration between Soap & Paper Factory and Patch NYC. This one has notes of black tea, anise, basil and citrus. This is a pretty subtle scent. I like it for a barely there scent when I want a little something but don’t want my scent to overpower. I smell the black tea most.
Amber Absolute is my favorite of the bunch and has notes of sandalwood, amber, and cedarwood. This one is a really warm scent that is perfect for summer and fall. It just smells cozy to me.
Inglot Freedom System Fragrances are quickly creeping up my list of favorites lately. They are magnetized which is how I stacked them in the pictures. They fit together in white palettes connected by magnets. These are solids as well and are perfect for wearing alone or layering. And at $12 each they’re also a complete effing steal.
Purple Musk has top notes of bergamot, ivy, and clary sage, mid notes of orris, jasmine, and rose, and a base of cinnamon, musk, and tonka beans. I pick up on the jasmine and rose the most out of this fragrance. I love the way it smells fresh but has so much depth at the same time.
Bright Amber has top notes of citrus, bergamot, and mandarin, mid notes of freesia, jasmine, and vanilla flower, and base notes of wood, amber, and cinnamon. I am always attracted to scents with amber and this is no exception. I love the way the amber, vanilla, and jasmine blend together in this one. The combination is heavenly!
Golden Wood has top notes of apricot orange, and sugared berries, mid notes of orange blossom, osmanthus, and peony, and base notes of honey, wood, and tonka beans. This scent is so warm and sugary to me. I love the way it smells and I think it mixes great with other fragrances, whether it be a scent in the Inglot system or something else entirely.
Although everything else represented here is a solid perfume, I couldn’t help but feature Eau So Sexy by Victoria’s Secret. It has notes of bergamot, paradise apple, and chantilly cream. I am always blown away by Victoria’s Secret’s ability to create fragrances that make me feel sexy, but are also super fresh and fragrances that are versatile and appropriate enough to wear during the day. This both smells like a fresh and crisp fruity floral and also has warm qualities to it. It is the best! I also love that although it’s only the rollerball, they didn’t skimp on making it adorable just like the larger version of the fragrance. Gotta love that bow! At $18 this is also a perfect way to try the fragrance, have a little size for on the go, and for gifting!
Do you ever take your perfume on the go? Do you like solid perfumes, roller balls, or mini sprays?
