The main fragrance notes in Chaparral® perfume are Woods, frankincense and sage.
This romantic, antique inspired mini compact opens to reveal a separate little tin pan filled with Chaparral solid natural perfume. When snapped shut, the front of the oval shaped compact contains a Victorian diamond design that has a warm antique brass finish. The ornate design is engraved, so you can feel it if you run your finger over it. The compact arrives in a small pouch within a pillow box with four little informational cards.
I place a little ball of earthquake under the solid perfume pan to secure it within the little compact.
Small tester sizes are available here:
This is the perfect gift for those allergic to traditional perfume. I hand fabricate each of these creamy, solid perfumes utilizing pure, plant essences and my own plant infusions. In some cases there is even beeswax from my fabulous honey bees! The mini compact measures 42mm tall (just over an inch and a half) by 33mm wide (1 1/4 inches) and the inside recessed circle for the solid perfume pan measures 23mm. The small tray will supply about 30 applications of the fragrance.
These pretty compacts are made here in the USA from vintage molds that go back to the 1940's. Each one has been plated with a special finish to create an antique quality. No lead or nickel have been utilized.
You can also order the solids pans individually so that you can choose a different scent for each
I put the solid natural perfumes in separate aluminum pans so that they will not adversely react with the metal. This insures longevity of your perfume and also gives you the option to swap out different fragrances. If you would like to order several different tins for your locket please convo me and I will create a special listing for you.
Enjoy, bee happy, slather yourself often and mindfully.
