Cousins Amiel and Arriane had made scents named and inspired by their childhood heroines to re-introduce the age-old technique of solidifying perfumes. Did you know that solid perfumes were used from the Renaissance period and were even used all the way back to the Ancient Roman and Egyptian times? Now ANA Classica is bringing solid perfumes to the Philippines!
These homemade solid perfumes have been meticulously selected and sourced from all-natural and organic ingredients. No alcohol, preservatives nor petroleum!
This means that solid perfumes tend to be better than liquid perfumes in the sense that:
- There’s no spillage!
- Easy to use to apply to specific points of your body.
- Scent is mild–neither offensive nor suffocating to other people.
- Moisturizing and non-comedogenic.
The five vintage locket necklaces include a collaboration with Sining Seleste, a local artist who hand-paints one of the lockets. These lockets are made of stainless steel and are hypoallergenic and non-tarnish. They can even be worn by acidic people! Each locket contains 1.5 ml of solid perfume, and when worn, gives off a hint of the scent it encases.
The mini diamonds meanwhile contain 5ml of golden caramel solid perfume. The golden caramel coloring leaves a hint of sparkle on your skin–so it also doubles as a highlighter!
Victoria – Inspired by Queen Victoria, this classy scent is fresh and fruity–it has a fantastic pear note with a hint of rose.
Shelley – Inspired by author Marie Shelley, this scent is a chronicle of sweet and fruity with cherry, plum and vanilla notes.
Cleo – Inspired by Egyptian queen Cleopatra, this scent is an alluring composition of jasmine and vanilla notes.
Marie – Inspired by Marie Curie, this scent is a complex mix of rose and citrus notes.
Frida – Inspired by artist Frida Kahlo, this scent is a warm blend of vanilla, cherry and amber with a hint of milk. <–This scent I personally love!
- I like that it comes in a locket form–makes you smell good even when you’re not directly wearing perfume!
- Lasts long on my skin–up to 6 hours, but for some people it can last as long as 8.
- The scents are gorgeous–each one is perfect for every mood.
- Comes at a reasonable price.
- The solid perfume comes available in two sizes only- the locket which is 1.5 ml and the diamond which is 5 ml.
- Because of the shape, it would be hard to scrape off the solid perfume in the diamond as soon as it’s about to run out.
