Pacifica Solid Perfume Review: Pacifica Lotus Garden, Pacifica Bali Lime Papaya, Pacifica Tunisian Jasmine, and Pacifica Egyptian Bergamot Rose

When I noticed that one of newest brands that Sephora is carrying at the moment was Pacifica I got all kinds of hyper. With high standards about what goes in their products plus an inexpensive price tag, Pacifica is a user friendly product on all accounts.

Facing a declining economy plus a need for more vegan/organic brands, Pacifica comes out as a shining beacon. With plenty of bath and body options in large sizes with small price tags the brand manages to appeal to our need for more all while paying alot less.

I'll be featuring several items from the Pacifica Collection over the course of the next few days as I'm so deeply impressed with the quality and the price. I'm positive after you hearing my raves you'll want to indulge in a few items yourself!

Jump ahead to hear me babbling in joy over Pacifica Solid Perfume!

Boxed up in brightly packaged slide boxes, Pacific Solid Perfumes captivate and make a girl want to reach out and grab one just to look at the sweet little boxes the perfumes are housed in. Although the box is gorgeous the real gold lays with in so slide it open to reveal a sweet little tin no bigger than a size of a MAC eyeshadow that houses a gorgeous little solid perfume that paraben-free ad made from organic coconut wax, organic soy wax, and natural and essential oils.

These sweet vegan friendly perfume solids pack an interesting, complex, and unique scent that's traveler friendly and cute as a button! If you're wanting to multitask you can use these solids not only as a perfume but also to rub on rough elbows, knees, and cracked heels for a bit of extra moisture but remember for the most part they are solid perfumes.

The scents all have a nice throw and a good linger but my body chemistry sucks them up so I do have to reapply throughout the day to keep the scent fresh. Considering the tins are so tiny I can tuck one in my makeup bag or desk draw for a quickie pick me up through the day. A bit on all my pulse points freshens up the scent and creates a subtle yet lovely little scent of goodness. I tried four of the blends but there are a slew of others. From fruity to natural, woodsy or herbal, Pacifica has that perfect little scent for everyone. The scents I tried were Lotus Garden, Tunisian Jasmine, Bali Lime Papaya, and Egyptian Bergmont Rose.

Pacifica Solid Perfume in Lotus Garden was recommended to me and I must say it's the very best of all four. I was thinking how floral it would be but it's actually very fresh with hints of fruit and a tiny underlay of floral. Incredible scent. The dominant note that takes over the blend for me is a crisp, clean citrus. The citrus keeps the blend fruity but it's quickly followed up with green notes and a strong underlay of lotus which gives it a certain twang. Who would think that citrus and lotus would go so well together? The scent manages to have a fun element but also a sexy one. It's truly something you have to experience to understand, an amazing fruity floral blend that's fresh, clean, and sweet!

If it's fruit you crave with a sweet kick Pacifica Solid Perfume in Bali Lime Papaya is sure to please! A dominant note of papaya will hit you right in the face on first sniff but the twang of lime morphs the blend and creates a sweet, tart blend that's complex and fun, perfect Summer scent!

Pacifica Solid Perfume in Tunisian Jasmine is ridiculously good. I don't particularly like the scent of jasmine and this is straight up, in your face jasmine but oh it's something special. It contains Mediterranean almond which could account for what makes this blend so incredible. It's a really fresh, floral but very hardcore and heavy. It's unique, very sexy, and utterly different. Loves it!

And finally, my last scent, I tried Pacifica Solid Perfume in Egyptian Bergamot Rose. Yet another complex and interesting blend full of warm, spicy notes and hints of floral this blend is sexy and flirty. I get a strong dominant note of a spicy musk for the most part but the rose and bergamont keep the scent fresher and slightly floral. I'd favor this for more of an evening scent!

At a sweet price tag of merely $9 USD each Pacifica Solid Perfumes won't break your beauty budget. Each tiny tin is ideal for travel can be easily toted around for quickie touch ups on the fly. Pretty, bright, festive packaging keeps a Muse coming back for second and third helpings of these sweet little perfumes.

All in all I think Pacifica Solid Perfumes are truly a unique little beauty find and sure to please both vegan friendly and beauty budget gals alike!

The Muse loves 'em! Cute, fun, and unique these are the perfect price for spoiling yourself.

I got a Pacifica gift set a year or two ago as a gift and I'm so excited they sell it at Sephora now, too! I saw these "solid perfumes" there recently but I didn't buy any because I don't know what to do with a solid perfume - shouldn't it be a spray? But anyway I like the hawaiian ruby guava scent the most, but the lotus one is a close second! I can't believe you beat me to writing about these too :) I am writing a vegan-oriented fashion blog at
