Le Soft Perfume in Zazou

I've never really been a fan of solid perfumes as I always found them a bit of a faff to apply. You can only really apply them to skin and I like to spray my perfume on my clothes as well as I find the scent lasts longer this way. That is until this little stick perfume was part of a gift with purchase from Cult Beauty and it has completely changed my opinion.

The scent Zazou, housed in pretty floral cardboard packaging, is completely different to what I normally go for when it comes to perfumes. I'm not a huge floral fan but for some reason I fell in love with this as soon as I smelt it. As soon as you apply it the lemon and grapefruit notes are the strongest but as it sinks into your skin the neroli appears. There's also a hint of musk/wood which is what I like in a perfume and tend to gravitate towards. What surprised me most is how long the scent lasts on the skin. Although it tones down a bit as the hours go by, I can still smell it later on in the day after I've applied it in the morning.

When you're applying the perfume it feels more like balm rather than a perfume thanks to the shea butter base and feels very moisturising on the skin. I can see myself buying a couple more tubes and building a small collection of these solid perfumes! I'd like to smell all the different varieties so I can find one that is similar to the majority of perfumes I already own and then keep it in my bag as a top up throughout the day. They're £20 each and available from Cult Beauty.

Lily wrote a post about these solid perfumes last year and has included all the scent descriptions at the bottom if you want to have a look. It's easier than opening all of the pages on Cult Beauty and you can compare all the scents in one place.

  1. I've always wanted to try one of these (the packagings are too cute!) but I'm a bit difficult when it comes to fragrances and would definitely prefer smell them first before buying! But this one sounds super lovely actually!
