An elegant packaging of the Pacifica Persian Rose Solid Perfume and Body Butter is matched only by their classic and elegant scent: that of an ancient rose.
Pacifica – one of the most asked about and searched for brands – given I’ve been using the Pacifica products for years now; the same goes for this duo so this review comes quite late – but it’s here nonetheless!
Years ago – and in some cases even today – it was quite difficult finding a natural perfume, especially a solid one. Once I discovered Pacifica solid perfumes, even more precisely – the rose solid perfume, I was hooked! Tiny tins of solid perfume have been something I’ve been very fond of since I was a kid, and finding a natural solid perfume with a scent of roses, was quite exciting. Over the years, I’ve tried several of the Pacifica solid perfumes (the floral ones, mainly) but I always returned back to the Persian Rose one. I had these tiny tins everywhere, and once they were empty, I would re-use them for various handmade butters and lip balms.
To have a body butter matching the beautiful rose scent of a solid perfume (or visa versa) it’s an added bonus that Pacifica offers their rose-loving customers. Of course, there are other Pacifica products from the rose collection, such as perfume and roll on, as well as hair/body mists – the latter is what I’ve been trying to get my hands on for quite some time.

The Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter is of a medium thick texture; easily appliable, the body butter absorbs quite quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling. It should be noted that, as much as it’s tempting – due to scent – to apply less of the body butter,; this way, it will spread better and absorption will be faster.
The Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter is a finely whipped body butter of many skin-beneficial, hydrating and nourishing ingredients, mainly – many butters, such as shea, mango and cocoa butter, along with many vegetable oils, promoting skin’s elasticity, hydration and nourishment. Upon applying this body butter, you will immediately notice your skin being velvety soft. While I mainly use body butters after a night shower and more rarely during Summer, this body butter, being light, fast absorbing and non-sticky, I use it after a morning shower as well; it does not stain the clothes either. Given these properties, I’ve been using this body butter as a hand cream as well.
The scent of the The Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter is heavenly for anyone who likes a rose scent. Of course, roses are in the front line, with a bit of a violets behind; after a while, the butter’s scent becomes a bit woody and spicy – difficult to precisely describe this wonderful scent. Aside from keeping the skin hydrated and nourished throughout the day (or night all into the morning), the scent stays quite powerful for most of the day as well.

A tiny tin of elegant, mesmerizing natural wax solid perfume. The best way to describe the texture would be: it’s on a dry side, meaning, the solid perfume is non sticky or greasy and is easily used anywhere. The scent is in its own league: floral, with a rose being the queen she is, along with a subtle violet, making way for a bit of a fruity scent somewhere behind, especially later on. In short: an elegant and modern take on what ancient rose scent was. In a combination with the Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter – heavenly!
Since it’s a tiny tin, it’s portable and handy for re-application at any moment. The elegant and beautiful packaging is suitable for an equally elegant and beautiful scent inside.

Potentially problematic ingredients? None.

My final word?
It’s not wonder Pacifica is one of the most popular green beauty brands out there; I’ve been receiving so many emails asking me about Pacifica products, and I promise I’ll write more reviews of this brand’s products in the future.
Anyone, looking for an elegant, beautiful rose scented body butters and solid perfumes – look no further; Pacifica Persian Rose Solid Perfume and Body Butter are your excellent choice. Beautiful packaging is just an added bonus. The body butter will leave your skin smelling great and feeling like velvet, while providing hydration and nourishment due to its many butters and vegetable oils. And the solid perfume, portable, non-greasy and smelling delicious – what’s not to like?
I hope Pacifica never stops making these beautiful products; I’ve been noticing there’s some shortage of quite a few Pacifica products lately, while at the same time, Pacifica has launched quite a few new products – from perfumes, to skin care products; as mentioned before, I hope the stores I shop at the most will start carrying Pacifica’s hair/body mists as well.
Oh, and the price for the solid perfume and body butter? Both fall under affordable, with the Pacifica Persian Rose Body Butter being around €17 for a generous 236ml tune and the Pacifica Persian Rose Solid Perfume being around €11 for a 10g tin; especially the solid perfume will last for quite some time.
I’ve been buying many Pacifica products for years now, with the rose solid perfume being my most often purchased product, and will continue to. Both the rose body butter and solid perfume come highly recommended by me!
