I got it for 700 INR.

My Experience with The Body Shop Love ETC Solid Perfume:

I love the packaging here.  It is this cute heart-shaped tin container with the solid perfume inside.  The container looks very girly and is of course really lightweight. Though I find that at times I do struggle to open the lid of the tin box.

The consistency of the perfume is not that solid when you actually take it in your fingers.  It actually feels like it melts when you touch it, but otherwise inside the container, it stays put. I would say it is basically in a sort of cream form. Now that I feel is really amazing!

The Body Shop Love ETC Solid Perfume 3

This smells absolutely gorgeous! Really floral with a hint of vanilla and citrus-orange. It is not extra sweet. It is girly and has a really casual touch to it. Not at all overpowering.

This comes in really handy for people who are on the run for most parts of the day. You can just slip it in your handbag or even small purses as the box is really tiny. Just open the box and apply some on your pulse points and carotid area if you want.

TBS solid perfume 4

The smell stays on approximately for 2-3 hours. This was the most disappointing part about this product. I mean may be at least 4 hours would have been great. To be honest, after 2 hours, the smell starts to fade away and by the end of 3 hours, you can smell this only if you bring your wrist close to your nose and smell. After a while, not even that.

But then, this tiny baby can sit in the very least of spaces, so I find myself reaching out to it and re-applying it after every 3 hours and I actually like doing that, because you start smelling fresh and young all over again 😛

So, overall I feel this is a great buy if you are looking for good solid perfumes out of the very few available in India. This is perfect as a gift too.

Pros of The Body Shop Love ETC Solid Perfume:

  • Very cute girly packaging.
  • Lovely floral, vanilla, orange smell. Basically smells really young and fresh.
  • Very easy to carry around in your purses.
  • Has a creamy formula, which actually I have felt moisturizes my skin at the application point as well.
  • It is not tested on animals.
  • Very easily available on TBS outlets.

Cons of The Body Shop Love ETC Solid Perfume:

  • Smell is not at all long lasting.
  • The tin box can be a pain to open at times especially when your hands are slippery.
