I have found the perfect travel solution for those who love fragrance!! If you are a perfume addict (*cough*) or just someone who always brings along your perfume when you travel, you know that it can sometimes be difficult to do! Bottles leak or worse, break, even when you take precautions to prevent them from doing so. In addition to that, airlines only allow you to bring a certain amount of liquid on board, so if you are flying and just using a carry-on, you have to purchase atomizers, travel sizes, or take your perfume from your full-sized bottles and move into much smaller ones. These petals (or towelettes) from Pinrose solve your every fragrance need!
These long-lasting fragrances are super easy to tote. The size of a wet nap, you can simply toss them in your purse, luggage or even your pocket, and forget about them entirely until it comes time to use them. No liquid, no muss, no fuss, and definitely no spills. And they smell great!! I'm not sure it's proper perfume protocol but I tuck mine back in after I use it, fold over the little packet and use it again later if I want to refresh my scent.
Try the same Pinrose Sampler Kit I did to see which fragrance might work best for you. They have included two of each of their scents in this kit, so you can test and enjoy them all.
There are many scents to choose from, so virtually anyone will find one that they love. Take the Scent Quiz to see what your perfect match might be. For me it said Secret Genius, which was spot on and I already knew that to be true (me and Secret Genius go way back!).
I have only tried a few of my towelettes (so far) because I like to take my time with scents and really get to know them. I was already familiar with this brand though because of my love of Secret Genius! This is a perfume I have known about for a couple of years now and I love it so much. It is a creamy nutty, caramel/vanilla scent that makes you feel like you are enveloped by a warm and comforting hug. And speaking of hugs, anyone who gives me one while I'm wearing this, inevitably asks me what smells so good?! This one is a big compliment getter.
Secret Genius Lotion with Argan and Aloe
So silky dreamy smooth!
I have the atomizer to take to work with me, for additional spritzes throughout the day, and I have the candle. What I also have, and this is new to me, is the lotion!! Nothing in this line is pricey, except for the lotion, but let me tell you it is worth every penny and then some. If you've ever looked for a lotion that smells delicious, moisturizes, and absorbs almost instantly with no grease or reside, this is your brand!! I am so impressed with this lotion!!!
To make a comparison... which I don't think is true, and I will explain why... some people say it smells like the super famous Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I know that cream, it used to be my absolute favorite because it works so well, and smells so good, but now it is tied with my Pinrose Secret Genius lotion for my first place. What are the differences?
Secret Genius: Smells soooo good, but subtly good. Caramel, Madagascan Vanilla and sandalwood.
Bum Bum: Smells soooo good, but in-your-face bold good. Pistachio, salted caramel and vanilla.
Secret Genius: Works superb! Silky. No greasy residue. Absorbs instantly.
Bum Bum: Works superb! Cream. I have to keep a towel underneath until it absorbs or grease will transfer.
Secret Genius: Traditional squeeze bottle
Bum Bum: Screw-top jar
Secret Genius: All products are VEGAN
Bum Bum: This product is VEGAN
Secret Genius: Cruelty-Free
Bum Bum: Cruelty-Free
Price: about equal
Favorite? I can't choose, I love and will continue to use them both!
