Praise for Sierra Solid Gold by Roxana Illuminated Perfume

Roxana of Roxana Illuminated Perfume makes some lovely botanical fragrances with which we have occupied ourselves on this venue before and her super-duper cuties of solid minis have pride of place on my very own desk as we speak. (she also sends them encased in either a lovely velvet green pouch or a papier mâché box that is too sweet for words).

It's therefore with joy that I discovered someone else also found one of her creations worthwhile while perusing the Net. Praising the virtues of solids (they don't spill, they slip into a handbag, are travel-friendly and discreet) Erin Flaherty remarks on The Frisky that "This botanical scent, Sierra Solid Gold, is not going to make people a mile away sit up and smell you. Instead it’s a clean yet well-rounded blend of green conifers like spruce, fir and pine, mixed with warm notes of vanilla, tonka bean, spice and orange. It’s the perfect fragrance to take from late summer well into fall". Couldn't have said it better myself!
Super affordable on Etsy.


  1. Those are adorable and I need to get around to this line because so many of them are based on California and the aspects of it that I know really well.

  2. This dear lady really knows what she's doing !
    And SUCH a kind soul.

    Her products are infused with all of these qualities.

  3. Jen,

    I think you'd really like Lyra! It's a complex floral (jasmine, ylang) with enough sweetness and it's just beautiful.
    The mini solids are super-cute!!

  4. I,

    your kind support and encouragement to the artisanal creators is without peer. They're lucky to have you as a fan and loyal customer! And I do mean this most sincerely.
