15 Nov Best Travel Friendly Perfumes For The Girl On The Go
Whether you’re heading out for a busy workday or an exotic location, you’ll want to have the perfect fragrance in a travel perfume size with you to feel fresh and energised as you’re jet setting around the globe.
Travelling with your favourite perfume can be a stressful experience since so many of our signature scents are housed in beautiful but fragile glass bottles, but finding a memorable perfume that will survive your handbag or your suitcase is definitely not as hard as it sounds. No matter where you’re heading, we’ve compiled the best travel friendly perfumes to keep you smelling fresh and fierce!
1. Travel Pefume Sprays
For those ladies who have already found a signature scent or are eternally loyal to their favourite brand, you are in luck! Travel perfume sprays are a standard for most perfume brands, and are easy to get your hands on. If you’re a diehard fan of fragrances from Chanel, Byredo and Jo Malone, you’ll almost certainly be able to find your favourite scent in travel spray form.
Travel sprays are generally just a petite version of the full sized fragrance, meaning they can easily be slipped into a handbag or lugged around the world in a suitcase. Because many of them are around 10-30mL, you could even pack a few of these babies for your travels!
The biggest downside of travel sprays is the glass packaging, which can be a stressful prospect to travel with. If you’re heading overseas, try wrapping your travel perfume spray in between a scarf (handbag) or towel (check-in).
Alternatively, some brands such as Floral Street and Juliette Has a Gun have tiny 1-2mL sprays in their discovery kits. These kits have the added bonus of allowing you to really personalise your daily fragrance, since you’ll have a bunch of scents to choose from!
Tocca’s feminine floral scents have earned them a cult following & many of their perfumes are also available in travel-friendly sizes.
The head-turning Cleopatra, which will have you feeling like a true queen from Egypt to Rome! Grapefruit and cucumber take centre stage here, followed by the sweetness of peach nectar, jasmine, and vanilla musk.

2. Travel Perfume Rollerballs
The little sister to sprays, travel perfume rollerballs are equally as popular for all the big brands, and are another simple solution to taking your favourite scent on the road. Instead of spritzing, roller balls are applied directly to the skin, so your choice of spray or roller really comes down to personal preference.
Roller balls are a fantastic option if you like to keep applying your perfume through the day, given the fast and fuss-free “dab and go” application style.
Just like sprays, travel rollerball perfumes generally come in a 10mL bottle. You’ll also find some interesting oils and balms in a rollerball form, which are particularly great if you’re sensitive to the typical alcohol-based formula.
Amber Musk Rollerball
Need a freshen up? Or perhaps you’re feeling that ache of homesickness? Aerin has you covered with their Amber Musk Rollerball, guaranteed to have you feeling fresh and warm.
