Whether you're always in a rush to get out the door in the morning and forget to spritz on your signature scent or you hate the overpowering cloud of fragrance often associated with classic perfumes, it's time to get to know perfume balms. Much like perfume oils, perfume balms tend to be more heavily concentrated to create a longer-lasting scent that really sticks to skin. Also known as solid perfumes, these non-liquid scents feature mixtures of hardened oils, waxes and other ingredients to dab fragrance exactly where you want it, without going overboard.

While perfume balms have been around for ages (literally, as they were popular in Ancient Egyptian times), they're coming back into style. Whatever the reason may be, there's no denying that we're stoked for the travel-friendly product's return. Ahead, we've rounded up nine solid perfume balms to help get your collection started.
