Some time ago, thanks to the sadly no longer Heartsy, I came across an etsy store called Baroque, now known as Perfumies. On offer are solid perfumes, packaged in wind up tubes, like the ones lip balms typically come in, only more narrow.

There are many fragrances to choose from, and many are perfume dupes.

INFATUATION: *(not listed)
Beautiful soft, sweet floral. It is warm, yet bright. Sophisticated and very likeable.

SEA MIST: *(not listed) 
Ozonic musk, with the appeal of sweet florals. This is quite close to the skin, perfect for warmer months. 

RENDEZ-VOUS:*This fragrance begins with top notes of fresh floral ylang ylang, rose petals and French jasmine. Lovely base notes of vetiver and sandalwood provide a woodsy crisp finish. 
This fragrance begins quite crisp florals and has a green herbal note to it. After wear, it turns soapy. Not nasty soap, but still soapy, unfortunately.

AFTERGLOW: *This scent is of a blend of sandalwood, amber, musk and vanilla. Enchanting and romantic, if a fragrance could glow, it would smell like this.
This fragrance is warm and romantic. The rich notes of sandalwood and amber, blended nicely with musk and most people's favourite, sweet syrupy vanilla. 

VIXEN: *A distinguished, bold blend of oriental notes, this scent is an unmistakable blend of ripe berries, amber and dark honey. Sensuous, powerful and guaranteed to make you unforgettable.
Exotic, sweet and fruity. Sexy and mysterious. This perfume is so alluring.

TINKERBELLE: *(not listed)
On me this is sweet soft floral. It's a playful fun scent. This one is very close to the skin on me, disappears very quickly.

KISSING BANDIT: * This scent is dark and sensual with playful flirty notes. We blend sensual mirabella plum, black raspberry amber, lush peony, vanilla bean, musk and fresh spun cotton candy.
On my skin, this is mostly sweet cotton candy. Delicious and sweet, with the barest hint of fruity tartness and floral. It is quite  close to the skin, a perfect fun fragrance for warmer months.

I find these solid perfumes so convenient for travel. Application is fuss free, just wind up and apply.
