Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom Solid Perfume


I absolutely love perfume, and I have far too much of those pretty glass bottles in all the fancy styles! You may not believe me here but I've actually never ventured into the solid perfumes before! I've seen a few in Lush before, but never really understood them or bothered with them until now!

I've been using the Pacifica Malibu Lemon Blossom Solid Perfume for about a week now, and I am absolutely loving it!

Firstly, look at this packaging. It's so sunny and bright and happy, very appealing!


The sweet quote on the side of the box.



The front of the tin.


The back of the tin.

So obviously, the perfume comes in a tin! I was very intrigued!
When I opened it, I could instantly smell the sweet lemon scent, yet it was not at all overbearing. You know how some perfumes are overbearing the moment you open the lid? This is not like that! The scent is really subtle!

I actually agree that it's "the scent of summer at the beach" as it really reminds me of the lemon that usually comes in your fish and chips - although a lot sweeter! 



The actual product itself is a soft lemon colour, and is very waxy but does not linger on the skin. It absorbs really quickly so there's no nasty residue left behind. I haven't used solid perfume before so I'm not sure if that is a common problem or not.



The scent itself stays for a good amount of time, and is not at all overpowering to wear. It's also so small that I can throw it in my handbag (even a clutch, it's so compact) and know that I'll never be without a lovely scent again. Quite often I forget to put on perfume before going to work (I know, gross) so this is perfect! It's definitely a safe for work scent, that is in my handbag ready to go!


Already I can see this is going to last me forever, as I've been using it all week long and have barely used anything!

Another plus that of course, with Pacifica, it's vegan friendly and natural, definitely something I look for in my cosmetics! Plus, it's extremely cost effective at only $12.95 for that whole tin! Definitely worth the dollars!

Overall I think I'd buy this again for something to throw in the handbag or take on holidays, since it's much safer than throwing a glass bottle of perfume in my travel bag! The smell is delightful, I can't wait to try other scents!

    1. Haha me too! I love my bottles! :D
      It's something to consider if you have to get on an plane and can't take any liquids with you! It's a sneaky way to smell yummy while everyone else smells sweaty hehe :P
