Last year when Roxana Villa of Roxana Illuminated Perfume sent me a sample of her GreenWitch perfume I was immediately taken with it and quickly bought a bottle of this green magical potion. This year Roxana has added a GreenWitch solid perfume to her range of solid perfumes. It's a very good thing.
The solid perfumes look a bit waxy in the pan but warm up upon contact with the skin and melt into it without leaving greasy residue. They feel soft and pleasant when you wear them, which is no wonder consider they're rich in jojoba oil. From what I understand, the solid perfumes can be a great alternative to those allergic to traditional perfumes. I'm not, so I regard them as another way to enjoy a beloved scent. GreenWitch in its solid form is almost identical to the gorgeous liquid form. It's more intimate, though, and adds a new level of warmth to the green stems, sea whispers and sweet/salty goodness. It makes wish there was a matching body butter so I can just slather myself all over with GreenWitch and smell like I'm strolling a beautiful and empty clean beach wrapped in silk and thoughts.
GreenWitch by Roxana Illuminated Perfumes ($32, 5 gr) is available from the perfumer's Etsy store. Link provided for your convenience only, I'm in no way affiliated with the store and/or benefiting from it. My sample was furnished by Roxana Villa.
