Pacifica Makes Wonderfully Evocative Perfumes, Soaps, Candles & Body Butters - And They're Affordable Too!

Now that the warm (read: hot) weather has arrived, you'll want to change up your scents from the heavy winter notes to something a little lighter, a little more summery.

Pacifica is one of those companies that you can count one for lovely fragrances that are affordable and that come in many forms, so if you prefer a a solid perfume or spray, soap, body butter or a candle, you can cater it to your lifestyle - a little spritz there, a little rub there.

What I like most about Pacifica is their attitude towards fragrance - it should be fun and wearable. As well, they are socially responsible - Pacifica products are free of parabens, propylene glycol, phthalates and lead wicks, and they do not use any animal ingredients including beeswax.

Their scents are wonderfully playful and actually quite sexy.

One of my favourites is Lotus Garden. It is quite floral, with green and citrus notes. It is light and clean but has depth and body too. I like it so much I got it in the perfume, body butter, soap and soy candle! It's one of those scents that you can wear everyday and never tire of.

Egyptian Bergamot Rose is another wonderfully evocative scent. Blends of amber, rose and orange create a heady mix of sexy hippie chic that is bound to delight you. French Lilac is a classic scent and brings to mind a garden in full bloom. And I'm loving the fresh boldness of Tunsian Jasmine, which is wonderfully surprising and complex.

Of course this is just a small sampling of their scents. As you can see, they have a lot to choose from - florals, fruits, herbs and spices and woods & resins! For my friends who love vanilla, they'll be devouring Vanilla Vera Cruz and for something out of the ordinary, try Thai Lemongrass!

I love that you can choose your perfume in a spray or solid form (I prefer spray, my Mom prefers solid) and that you can layer your favourite scent by adding their luxurous body butters. Shea butter, almond and safflower oils nourish and soften your skin while a soft fragrance lingers throughout the day - pure delight!

And their soy candles fill the room with the scent of your choice, but don't overpower even the smallest of spaces. They are handmade at the Portland, Orgeon factory and give a long-lasting, clean burn. These are candles that you can feel good about using - and they look good too.

And that's one thing I want to mention. Pacifica's packaging is just gorgeous - no gift wrap required! In fact, you'll want to keep the boxes and use them to store other things. I'm using my soap box to hold business cards on my desk. It's b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

So check out all of the Pacifica products and change up your scents for summer. Not only is it a lot of fun, it's actually affordable too!
