Although we all know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover, beauty products are kind of a different story.
Take these solid perfumes from NYC's Soap & Paper Factory. Each of the all-natural fragrance pots comes wrapped in a whimsical hand-drawn pattern inspired by the scent inside- so whether it's jasmine, orange blossom, green tea or lavender, the exterior is equally as pretty as the contents inside.
Besides the fact that these artsy containers are guaranteed to give any makeup counter an extra dose of chic, the 1/2 oz. tubs are about as big as a tub of lip balm- meaning they can slide discreetly into any pocket or clutch. And at just $18 each, you can mix, match, and layer to your heart's content.
The company stresses that the pots are recyclable, which is awesome. But with packaging so pretty, we don't blame you if you want to recycle them in a different
way (as jewelry containers, candle holders, or room decor) even after the perfume is gone.
