This is one of the high end price points of Chaparral 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.
In the July 2012 issue of C Magazine Chaparral is described as "a woodsy, dry scent inspired by the native California landscape with hints of sage and frankincense..." See the article at my journal: http://bit.ly/19rViCt
There is approximately 5.3 grams or 0.186 ounces of natural perfume by weight. 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.
I pour each solid perfume into a separate vinyl coated aluminum pan that fits inside with the 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.
This fragrance spins a tale of the aromatic spirit and traditions of the wild west. Fresh herbals mingle with wood as Air and Fire element dance in the breeze.natural solid perfume is handmade with a botanical synergy including notes of frankincense, smoke, resin and sage in a base of organic jojoba oil and local beeswax.
If you have ordered from Roxana Illuminated Perfume in the past there is a once a year discount which can be used on this compact, check out details by coping and pasting this link from my journal: http://bit.ly/bDphWM

The base ingredients for this perfume are organic jojoba seed oil and pure beeswax from a small farm in Ojai, California. The beeswax is the only item in this fragrance that is non botanical. The main ingredients are Resins, Wood, Frankincense and Sage.
The solid perfume version of this incense inspired fragrance has been created by hand utilizing pure, plant essences. This is the perfect gift for those allergic to traditional perfume.
All my items are handcrafted in a smoke and pet-free environment.
