This is one of the high end price points of Aurora as a solid. Due to the high nature component of these fragrances, the amount of time and resources involved, they are not returnable. Please try a sample of the fragrance before investing in a higher priced item. Individual samples and sets are available here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/IlluminatedPerfume?section_id=5770674 Botanical, natural perfume is a vital item, created by hand with real plant materials.
The round cases are manufactured and finished in America by a small family owned business. The compact measures 1-5/8" diameter x 1/2" deep.
Each solid perfume is poured into a separate coated aluminum pan that fits inside the brass finished metal compact. This ensures lasting performance of this pure, natural, botanical perfume and the option to replace with a fresh tin when all used up. Like wine, the vintage gets better with age if stored properly.
Divina at the Fragrance Bouquet Blog states the following of the Aurora as a liquid perfume: "What beautiful, twinkling magic has been weaved in this amazing, heart-moving fragrance? Because it is surely magic, or at the very least the magic of art and love, that make this fragrance evolve so stunningly on the skin, going through countless transformations that seduce the senses one after the other..."
Fragrance family: FLORAL + ORIENTAL = Floriental
