Of all the things you must pack when you’re jetting off for work or play, your favourite fragrance is up there at the top of the list.
A long-haul flight is made a little gentler with a spritz of scent before you land, and with scent and memory so closely linked, you’re better off keeping an identifier fragrance on hand to create those long-term visions of that incredible sunset over the Grand Canyon or the like.
On the flip side — fragrances are big, heavy, messy and almost always made of glass. So we suggest a temporary eschewing of your old faithful 100ml and looking to our curated selection of cruelty-free compact scents that will see you through from takeoff to jet lag coffee and all the way through your travels.
Le Labo Rose 31 Liquid Balm, $132.00
The mysterious, spicy and alluring Rose 31 is available in this subtle yet potent liquid balm (much like a perfume oil) that works perfectly on your pulse points and won’t bulk up your in-flight skincare.
Kai Perfume Oil, $70.00
Gardenia, gardenia and some more gardenia for good measure. This Kai oil rollerball packs a floral punch but in the best, cleanest and greenest way. You’ll definitely be asked what you’re wearing, an ideal soapy pick-me-up after a long day.
Tocca Cleopatra Rollerball, $31.00
A subtlety sweet fruity floral, Cleopatra is unlikely to offend anyone you’re sharing close quarters with, or if you’re feeling more adventurous you can opt for the Tocca Discovery Set filled with minis of their popular fragrance range so you can switch it up throughout your trip.
Diptyque Do Son Solid Perfume, $58.00
A tuberose that won’t overpower in a form that can fit in your back pocket, Do Son is a cruisier path to the flowerbombs out there and the product will melt into your skin for a fragrance that won’t invade the room but make others come to you.
Le Labo Lys 41 Perfume Solid, $135.00
Le Labo receives another honourable mention for their perfume solid offering, this time in their white floral mega monster which requires just a touch for an all-day staying power aura of fragrance — definitely one to work your way up to or for Le Labo devotees.
Byredo Mojave Ghost Roll-On, $81.00
Softly sweet and green, Mojave Ghost is a tropical holiday’s best friend that will work with any scented body lotions or shower gels you’ve got in the mix.
Juliette Has A Gun Another Oud Travel Spray, $39.00
JHAG provides a peppery, bubbly and vibrant oud that’s totally unlike the traditional versions you might have sampled in the past — if you’re a fan of Molecule 01 you might find yourself gravitating towards this scent.
By Rosie Jane Tilly Fragrance Oil, $57.00
Grapefruit, pineapple and gardenia play together in this feminine oil by Rosie Jane that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter the destination. For more of the latest beauty news, check out the articles below!
