There’s something to be said about having your own signature scent — a perfume that really describes your personality. Whether you’re a total #beautyaddict or more of a makeup minimalist, it can be seriously satisfying to wear a fragrance each day that makes you happy — that is, except for the part where you’re carrying around a glass bottle full of *very* potent liquid throughout the day. That’s why we love the idea of solid perfumes. Not only can you throw them in your bag for quick touch-ups, but it’s also much easier to use just the right amount without overspritzing, which wastes product + creates quite the scent cloud. Scroll on for 13 of our fave solid perfumes to try right now.
