I purchased this Rose solid perfume when I was getting ready to go on holiday and I wanted to take my regular perfume but the bottle was too big. It cost me £7.50 from the L'Occitane shop in my nearest town which has turned out to be a good investment.
The perfume comes in a small silver 10g tin with a pop off lid that stays in place whilst in my make-up bag. The perfume is solid and is opaque in colour. To use the perfume I use my finger to gently rub the solid perfume until a have a decent amount open my finger and the I rub it onto my neck and also wrists, you can use it anywhere on your skin, but it is recommend that you apply it to your pulse points for maximum effect. The perfume gives a lovely delicate four rose scent, as it contains the essence of four different roses, Grasse Rose, Bulgarian Rose, Moroccan Rose and Turkish Rose.
I find that the scent is quite strong to start of with, yet it has a softness after it has been on my skin for a while, I would say that it lasts for the best part of the day, and would need to be reapplied in the evening.
Overall I would recommend this solid rose perfume to others, as it is well priced, comes in a handy little tin that you can carry with you, it smells divinely of roses and it is well priced.

Having never bought anything by L'Occitane before, I happened to walk past one of their shops in France, and the sheer smell of their products wafting out of the store lured me in, making me spend about half my spending money on the first day of my holiday!
My favourite purchase was this solid perfume, which I bought along with the Rose 4 Reines Eau de Toilette. What attracted me to it most of all was the scent - its a beautiful, soft floral perfume that really smells of roses without reminding you of something your grandmother would wear! Its the sort of perfume that would suit anybody and I've always received a lot of compliments when I've worn it.
As a solid perfume, this product is ideal if you're on the move or don't have enough space in your bag for a bottle of perfume, plus you never have to worry about smashed bottles. I tend to use a small amount on my wrists and neck, where it lingers on my skin for a good few hours. I like layering it with the eau de toilette for a stronger scent, but it's perfectly good on its own for a subtle effect.
Overall, I'd certainly recommend buying this product and it certainly deserves five stars.
I had always wanted to carry perfume on a night out, however most bottles are too big. I had always heard about solid perfumes but didn't know where to get them or how big they were. Found this little gem on a shopping trip, as it's from one of my favourite brands, and the most amazing smell.
L'Occitane is a retailer for beauty, skincare and home products. It was established in 1976 and its headquarters are based in Luxembourg. The company started when Olivier Baussan started selling products made with essential oils from rosemary at his local market in south of France. The first L'Occitane store opened in 1978. It wasn't till the 90s when L'Occitane branches started opening all over europe.
The solid perfumes comes in a small circular lip balm shaped container. The container itself is silver and the top is red with a logo of a rose and writing.
When you open the lid, you're hit with a strong sent of rose. It has the essence of four different roses, (Grasse, Bulgarian,Moroccan and Turkish) all infused into one little pot. This perfume has a very strong, and romantic smell to it. However once you apply it and you've had it on for a while the smell will disappear. It's not a perfume which will last all day or night long, usually if you want the smell to stay you'll have keep re applying.
I found the perfume easy to handle, just rub your fingers over the perfume and rub it against any part of your body you wish. Like any other perfumes, it's recommend to rub on the pulse areas such as behind ears, on writs etc.
The perfume is alcohol free and small so therefore easy to carry and it's great in a make up bag for essential touch ups. You wont find another perfume which has the same unique smell of lovely summery flowers anywhere.
Also just realised it comes in a new heart shaped design. Gutted I didn't get that :(
Grasse, Bulgarian, Moroccan, and Turkish.
