Solid Scent

Few things announce a woman like her perfume. The problem is that heavy glass bottle of a favored eau de toilette isn’t very portable, making reapplication difficult. Boutique perfume makers Le Labo tweaked the medium by smuggling scents inside an alcohol- and paraben-free wax made of almond, coconut and soybean oils. The pale wax sits inside a small metal cylinder that twists open. Melt the wax by rubbing it onto wrists or behind ears, then stash it back into your bag or pocket. The brand can infuse the wax with any of their 14 signature scents, like the floral, lemon and touch of sunny bergamot found in the Fleur D’oranger 27. $85 for .14oz at
