Sex, Perfume, & Rock n' Roll

Le Soft Perfume in Rock
Le Soft Perfume is the creation of Isabelle Masson Mandonnaud (the genius who gave us Sephora) and Phillipe Vignon, who spent his career at L'Oreal. Their line of solid stick perfumes comes in ten delicious scents and is both paraben and alcohol free. In fact, the ingredients in these bad boys are undoubtedly top notch (think shea, mango, and Tamanu butters....what's Tamanu butter you ask? Who the hell knows, but it sounds fabulous). As soon as I heard AModelRecommends rave about Rock on her blog and youtube, I immediately decided I had to get my hands on it. The unisex quality of the scent appealed to me (see my post about wearing men's cologne here) and I took the plunge without ever getting whiff in person.

Rock, to my nose at least, is a very sexy, slightly masculine scent. I haven't been able to find the notes availably anywhere on line, but it smells slightly musky and leathery to me, which is ideal coming in to the Autumn season. It is my first solid perfume, and I'm already excited about how convenient it will be to throw in my handbag and touch up throughout the day. I applied the fragrance to both of my wrists, as well as along my neck. It might not be as strong as a traditional fragrance upon initial application, but it seems to have good lasting power.

In case you are wondering, the tube is no larger than a sturdy lipstick √† la YSL or Guerlain. The only transportation worry is that the packaging is primarily cardboard--it seems sturdy, but it is cardboard nonetheless, so I would be careful to not put it where it might get smushed by heavier objects. 

Good for the Soul, Good for the Skin
Le Soft Perfume is available on CultBeauty, who are based in the UK but offer free worldwide shipping for orders over £50 and often have coupon codes for free worldwide shipping for any order (check for codes). They have a huge assortment of covetable beauty products normally only available in the UK/EU, so it's worth taking some time to peruse their site. 

Are you going to pick up any of the Le Soft Perfumes? Which scent would you go for?
