Things that make air-travel easier (besides leaving your Louboutins at home): only take a carry-on, make sure you're packing a whole lotta patience, and don't even think about trying to smuggle liquids through security.
To that end, we're loving Pacifica's eco-friendly solid perfumes. They're 100% organic soy and coconut wax and Pacifica's perfume blends are made with sustainable raw materials—with zero carcinogens, toxins, phthalates, or parabens. The packaging is made of post-consumer recycled content and the tins themselves are also totally recyclable. Boarding with a scuffle with the TSA, smelling good, and doing right by the environment? Win-win-win.
