On-the-go Fragrance Solutions

Nope, they aren't vibrators. Just portable perfume dispensers which look like vibrators and could lead to confusing comments about the type's of things you keep in your office handbag... 

It's nice to smell nice. It's nice to continue to smell nice all day long. And if you aren't fortunate enough to be wearing Chanel everyday, then sometimes this just isn't possible from your morning spritz. 

Keeping perfume in your bag is not fun either. The bottles are more than often made of glass, bulky and awkward. And god forbid it smashed in your handbag... There is such thing as too much of a good thing - walking around doused in an entire bottle of perfume being one of them. 

So today I have two alternatives to the perfume bottle for you... the trusty Travalo  (RRP £15, but £7.50 on Fragrance Direct right now!) and a more affordable alternative for £1.50 from Primark. 

So.... what's the difference?

Well the Travalo (pictured in Pink) has a rather clever patented valve which allows you to remove the cap of your perfume, pop this on the little tube and pump it full of fragrance this way. It also comes in a large range of colours which would make them easier to differentiate, and it is slightly bigger and generally looks and feels more expensive. 

The Primark option is a fraction of the price, meaning you could buy more for different perfumes. But they only come in silver (as far as I'm aware), you have to unscrew the lid and spray the perfume in directly, which can be a bit messier. 

So you can buy 5 Primark atomisers for every Travalo - both have their merits. I use my Travalo for my most used, every day perfume, then will probably use the Primark atomisers for my less frequently used scents. 

Both hold enough to get a good few used out of. I hardly ever have to refill these! 

I'd love to know how you guys travel with your perfumes at the moment. Let me know below!
