Egyptians, well versed in the beauty of aromatic ingredients, steeped precious and sensual aromatics in oils and fats to create perfumed gifts for kings and gods. Many modern perfumers find the same luxurious beauty in creating with oil and beeswax for their blends. Intimate and long-lasting, oil and solid perfumes are an alternative to alcohol for those who love the experience of smoothing rather than spritzing their perfume. In France, concretes, a mixture of oils, and waxes were poured into molds, famously Fragonard sold them since the 1920s and today Le Labo has added solids to their offerings. Crafted with complexity and beauty, they are well worth a try. We asked four indie and artisan perfumers who are renowned for their coveted perfume oils and solids.
