Gift Guide: The Cream Perfume Company Review and Giveaway 12/19 US/CAN

After my son was born I stopped using perfumes. I didn't want him to breathe in many of the harmful chemicals which all of our favorite expensive perfumes contain. But I love to smell good, who doesn't? :) Just like with all of our other everyday items, there are now safe alternatives to perfumes.

Review
I was interested in trying out solid perfumes from The Cream Perfume Company. They sent me their solid perfumes in Mango Poudre and Ylang Ylang D'Amore scents as well as the Coconut Body Moisturizer. I couldn't wait to test these out!

The Coconut Body Moisturizer comes in a big 6oz tube. What I loved right away is that the tube was sealed! It guarantees freshness, because no one else has opened it before. I love everything coconut and this body moisturizer didn't let me down. It smells heavenly in the tube and after you apply it to the skin. This moisturizer does the job and leaves skin nice and soft.

The solid perfumes come in little wooden 10g jars - they are too cute for words! The jars are also sealed to prevent contents from drying out. The consistency reminded me of a lip balm. When I looked up the ingredients I found that 17% was beeswax, 63% sweet almond oil and 20% perfume.

Ylang Ylang d'amore consists of scents of ylang ylang, mandarin and jasmine. It is trailed by notes of apricot, cedarwood, orange flower, patchouli and musk.

Mango poudre consists of scents of mango and cassis balanced with timeless jasmin and candy sugar accord. Also trailed by with sandalwood, musk and vanilla. Out of the two perfumes this one is my favorite. I apply it to my wrists and it gives off a sweet subtle scent. It doesn't feel like a perfume. It feels like I have a nice smelling body lotion on. The scent lasts for a couple hours. It's easy to bring it along with you and keep re-applying. The jar is very tiny and made of wood as opposed to a heavy glass perfume bottle which is hard to bring along.

How interesting! I stopped wearing perfumes too because I work with autistic children and the chemicals seem to bother them but I wonder if the organic scents would bother or soothe them. I would like to try the ORGANIC Forest terre or the ORGANIC Lavender.
