Travel + Leisure / Anna Popp

Traveling with perfume is especially easy when you invest in a few mini bottles for seamless packing. It can be super handy to have perfume on hand to freshen up after a long-haul flight or before going out to a nice dinner on vacation. I tested a number of travel-size perfumes, paying specific attention to their quality, scent, and longevity in order to recommend the best ones for every type of traveler.

As a perfume devotee, I never leave the house without my favorite scent in hand. Whether you prefer floral, aromatic, or woody fragrances, this list contains a variety of scent options from some of my favorite brands that have yet to disappoint me on a trip. The travel perfumes highlighted below offer long-lasting wear and are sure to appease your olfactories.

Best Overall

Arquiste l'etrog acqua travel spray.

The formula is long lasting and doesn’t leave a residue on the skin or clothing. 

There are other scents to choose from if citrus isn’t your jam. 

This travel-sized perfume from Arquiste comes in a 7.5-milliliter tube which makes it ideal for extended vacations and weekend getaways. My personal favorite scent is this citrusy and woodsy blend that will keep you smelling fresh and clean, which is especially nice after a long-haul flight. The size of the spray tube is small enough to fit in a purse but large enough that the perfume won’t run out quickly or get lost in your bag. The best part of this product is its long-lasting formula that leaves the scent on your skin or clothing all day long without lingering after a shower. If the citrus, bergamot, lavender, and cedar notes don’t resonate with your fragrance preferences, there are six other scents to choose from including musky and floral options, too.

The Details: 7.5 milliliters | Citrus notes

Lumira Parfum Discovery Set

The set of six perfumes makes it easy to try a variety of scents in small bottles. 

The bottles are very small and run out quickly with daily use, so are best suited to shorter trips. 

The perfume Discovery Set from Lumira will transport you around the world with six destination-inspired scents. And if you’re already traveling, the spray bottles come in 2-milliliter sizes convenient for tossing in your purse or pocket. With scent combinations derived from the Middle East, Zanzibar, Cuba, Italy, and Morocco, the fragrances range from woody to citrusy and everything in between. One small spritz can last all day, and I discovered with wear that the perfume only smells better as the day progresses as the base notes get their chance to shine. But the best part is that these fragrances are made with sustainably sourced ingredients that are vegan, cruelty-free, and free of harmful chemicals.

The Details: 2 milliliters each | Set of 6 | Vegan formula

Best Splurge Set

Kilian paris discovery set.

These fragrances last longer than any of the other perfumes I tried.

The protective case for the bottles gets scratched easily. 

Worn by the likes of Rihanna and Beyoncé, this set of travel-sized perfumes from Kilian Paris is the ultimate luxury. The celebrity-loved brand comes at a higher price point, but the perfume seriously delivers when it comes to longevity and vibrant fragrances. After wearing the Bamboo Harmony scent for a 14-hour flight, I was impressed it was still strong enough that I didn’t have to re-apply before going out for the night. If fresh scents aren’t your favorite, the set also comes with woody, floral, and sweet options to choose from. With eight fragrances, the set of 7.5-milliliter tubes also comes with a convenient case to protect the bottles while traveling. While the paint on the case has chipped a bit with lots of use, the mini perfume bottles have stayed well protected inside whenever I’ve tucked it into a suitcase or purse.

The Details: 7.5 milliliters each | Set of 8

MCM Eau de Parfum Travel Spray

The perfume has an irresistible earthy smell to it with notes of sandalwood, violet leaf, and raspberry.

The bottle is fairly large for a travel perfume.

Looking for a muskier perfume? This one from MCM has the perfect combination of earthy and fresh notes that offer the best of both worlds. The spray perfume can easily be worn during the day for sightseeing or for a night on the town, making it versatile for any trip. It has top notes of fresh raspberry and apricot, middle notes of peony, jasmine, and violet, and strong base notes of white moss, vanilla, sandalwood, and ambrox. For travelers embarking on an extended trip, the bigger 1-ounce bottle will last longer, but it is larger than a typical 2-milliliter spray. However, the bottle still complies with the TSA’s 3.4-ounce policy for liquids in carry-on bags, so it’s still very easy to travel with and feels more durable since the bottle isn’t made of glass like with most other travel perfumes.

The Details: 1 ounce | Woody, aromatic notes

Elorea The Forgotten Words Discovery Set

The perfumes are made in small batches with vegan ingredients. 

The scents may vary slightly depending on the batch. 

For travelers (or anyone) dipping their toes into wearing perfume, this set of four perfumes from the Korean-owned perfume brand Elorea is ideal for trying different scents without breaking the bank. Every discovery set comes with a voucher equivalent to the price of the set that can be used toward purchases of a 50- or 100-milliliter bottle of perfume if there’s one that stands out for keeping at home. This set of perfumes called the Forgotten Words collection includes four 2-milliliter bottles of perfume with floral, fresh, aromatic, and woody scents to appease a variety of scent preferences. Because the brand makes its perfume in small batches, the scents may vary depending on factors like when the ingredients are harvested, but none of the bottles I’ve tried have disappointed.

The Details: 2 milliliters each | Set of 4

Best Floral

Tocca florence travel spray.

The floral scent will remind you of a garden in full bloom.

The bottle is on the bigger side. 

If you’re in search of a classic floral perfume, this one from Tocca is fragrant and fresh without being too overpowering, and includes notes of gardenia, bergamot, and pear. The Parisian-inspired scent is perfect for daytime when you’re out exploring a city, and just a few sprays will last hours without needing to re-apply. Although the 20-milliliter bottle is on the bigger end for travel-size perfume, it still fits inside a purse or toiletry bag and doesn’t take up as much space as it looks. The size and shape of the bottle are also ideal for storing at home since it looks like decor on a dresser, and the Eau de parfum will last longer than one of the smaller sprays for travel.

The Details: 20 milliliters | Bergamot, pear, gardenia notes

Best Customizable

Arquiste discovery set.

You can pick five of the 12 fragrances available to build your own set of mini perfumes.

The tubes are very small so you may run out of perfume quickly.

The downside of getting a discovery set of perfume is that you often don’t have the choice in which fragrances you get, so I love that Arquiste lets you choose your top five scents to build your own set. There are tons of scents to choose from whether your preferences are woody, spicy, smokey, or aromatic fragrances. This perfume rivals Kilian Paris when it comes to longevity, and I love the base notes that linger toward the end of the day for all five perfumes I use in this collection. The spray tubes are quite small at 1.5 milliliters each, and they run out fairly quickly if you use them daily. However, Arquiste gives you a $40 voucher to use toward a purchase of a 100-milliliter bottle of perfume. I found that the set of five perfumes is plenty for a two-week trip, especially since you can mix and match them for day or nighttime wear.

The Details: 1.5 milliliters each | Set of 5

Best Subscription

Scentbird monthly perfume subscription.

There are tons of designer perfumes to choose from each month.

Some of the higher-end perfumes cost extra in the subscription.

For travelers who have a hard time committing to one fragrance (like me), this monthly subscription is the best way to try out different scents. Once a month, you get to pick out a perfume from designer brands like Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marc Jacobs, then the perfume arrives at your door in an 8-milliliter spray bottle. First, you can take a quick quiz that helps recommend perfumes that match your profile, then the first order comes with an atomizer case to protect the glass spray bottle which is perfect for traveling. I have yet to be disappointed by any of the perfumes sent to me, though my favorite has been the warm and woody Monique Lhuiller perfume. One slight downside is that for some higher-end perfumes you’ll have to pay a bit extra, but it’s still less expensive than buying a bigger bottle. ScentBird also sells travel-size perfumes you can buy one time if there is a single perfume that stands out within the subscription.

The Details: 8 milliliters each | Atomizer case included

Best Splurge Spray

The harmonist hypnotizing fire parfum travel size.

The Harmonist

The spray has the perfect balance of spicy and sweet notes. 

It doesn’t come with a case so you’ll want to be careful with the bottle while traveling.

The Harmonist Hypnotizing Fire perfume is my go-to fragrance for any night out. The scent is warm and spicy with sweet undertones for the perfect balance of top, middle, and base notes. While I’m not usually a fan of perfumes with spice fragrances, the layering of cloves, patchouli, and vanilla is masterfully blended to create a perfume that always gets compliments when I’m out and about. The 8.5-milliliter spray bottle makes it easy to tuck the perfume in my purse or toiletry case for safekeeping, especially since it doesn’t come with a case so it’s more susceptible to breaking while traveling. The Harmonist also makes a variety of perfumes in all types of scents crafted in Paris using ethically sourced ingredients.

The Details: 8.5 milliliters | Pepper tree, pimento berries, cloves, rose, patchouli, vanilla notes

As a big fan of perfume, there are a few that I like but use a bit more sparingly when I’m at home or traveling. Still, they’re worth an honorable mention for this list.

  • Lumira Perfume Oil Discovery Set : I love the teeny tiny size of these oil rollerball perfumes, but I don’t love the residue left over after applying it to my skin. 
  • Korres Black Pepper Eau de Parfum : The refreshing citrus and warm black pepper notes are strong and vibrant, but the bottle is a bit too large to travel with regularly. 
  • Robert Piguet Discovery Set : This set of five perfumes is ideal for those who like woody and floral notes, but I wish there was a bit more variation in scents for the higher price.

Perfume is a liquid, so it just has to be under 3.4 ounces to be taken on the plane in a carry-on. Most travel perfumes range from 1.5 to 30 milliliters, which is just at or less than 1 ounce, so you should have no problem storing the bottles in a purse, backpack, or carry-on when going through the TSA security checkpoint at an airport.  

Packing travel-size perfume can be tricky since most of the time the bottles are made of glass and can break while traveling. I prefer to travel with perfume that comes with a case for peace of mind, but I also use this atomizer case from Amazon that protects the bottles. I like to pack my perfume with my personal item so I can handle it with care, or I tuck it into clothing like soft shirts or sweaters for safekeeping while flying.

If you’ve ever caught a whiff of jasmine at night and been instantly transported back to a tropical trip you know that scent can be a powerful memory trigger. There’s even scientific evidence that our sense of smell is more strongly connected to our brains than other senses. 

Capitalize on this knowledge (and help create special travel memories) by packing perfume for your next trip. Wearing a new fragrance for a trip can help tie that scent to a location—so every time you smell it, you’ll be flooded with positive reminiscences. 

Perfume is subject to the 3-1-1 liquids rule by airport security, so it’s important to bring a travel-sized vial. (You also don’t want to worry about a full-sized version breaking in your bag). 

These are the seven best travel-sized perfumes to take on your next trip. 

Nateeva: St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Full bottle of Nateeva St. Vincent and the Grenadines perfume (left) and two small Scentbird perfume holders and carrying bag (right)

What could be a more perfect perfume to pack for a tropical vacation than Nateeva’s St. Vinecnet and the Grenadines ? Inspired by the island’s flora, the fragrance has notes of night-blooming jasmine, plumeria, orange flower, and violet leaf.  

Find it on Scentbird , a site that specializes in travel-size perfumes. You can make one-time purchases of specific fragrances, or sign up for a subscription to get a 30-day supply of different scents sent to you each month, so you’ll have lots to choose from for your next trip. 

Carnal Initiation: Initio Perfume 

The Carnal and Hedonist lines of perfume from Carnal Initiation: Initio Perfume 

Set the mood for your trip with Inito Parfums Prives. This high-end fragrance brand offers initiation sets that are perfectly travel-sized so that you can take its perfumes on the road. 

Choose from the Carnal or Hedonist lines—both will come with a coupon to redeem the price of the set towards a purchase of any of the full-sized fragrances once you decide which one you’ve fallen for. 

Is the Dyson Airwrap Worth It For Travel?

Vahy: Neon Neroli

Inhale the fresh neroli, orange flower, and bergamot notes of Neon Neroli and you’ll feel like you’re lounging by the sea in Capri with this Italian-inspired perfume.

All of Vahy’s natural and vegan perfumes are made without synthetic fragrances, denatured alcohol, phthalates, parabens, or other bad stuff you might not want to spray on your skin.

Diptyque: 34 Boulevard Saint Germain Sold Perfume

Don’t want to worry about your travel-sized perfume shattering in your bag? Opt for a solid option, which you can rub on wherever you want to add scent. Diptyque’s solid perfume balm is a good choice—and if you’ve ever been to the brand’s store in Paris, you might recognize the signature scent.

Crafted with amber, patchouli, rose, cinnamon, blackcurrant, and floral notes, it’s the perfect pick for a sophisticated city trip.

Maison Margiela: Replica Beach Walk Travel Spray

The easiest way to transport yourself to a tropical beach vacation—a spritz of Maison Margiela’s Replica Beach Walk perfume . This fresh solar scent is designed to smell like a day at the beach, complete with salty air and sunshine. Bergamot, pink pepper, and lemon keep things fresh while heliotrope, coconut milk, and musk add a touch of sweetness. 

7 Essential Multipurpose Tools for Travel

Sol de Janeiro: Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ‘68 Beija Flor

Sol de Janeiro: Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ‘68 Beija Flor bottle laid out on a mirror reflecting a blue sky and surrounded by pink flowers (left) and the same bottle on a white backdrop (right)

Don’t limit your perfume to your skin—let your hair have some fun too. Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Crush Cheirosa mist was designed to be used on both hair and body (it won’t dry your hair out as regular perfumes might). 

This fruity-floral scent was inspired by the sunny gardens of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil with notes of Brazilian jasmine, pink dragonfruit, and vanilla.

Sephora Deluxe Mini Perfume Sampler Set

Sephora Deluxe Mini Perfume Sampler Set

Prefer to have options for your trip rather than sticking to one scent? Sephora’s Deluxe Mini Perfume Sampler Set lets you try out six popular fragrances: Clean Reserve Skin, Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Nest Baliense Coconut, Phlur Missing Person, and Versace Dylan Purple.

This money-saving set includes a certificate that you can redeem for a full size of any of the fragrances in the set.

For Travel, for Gifting, or for the Fragrance-Obsessed: 15 Best Perfume Discovery Sets to Shop

By Kiana Murden

All products featured on Vogue are independently selected by our editors. However, we may earn affiliate revenue on this article and commission when you buy something.

If there’s one thing that has made our journey to finding our signature scent easier, it’s a perfume discovery set which allow you to sample a collection of fragrances at once. These become increasingly helpful to cut through the vast fragrance marketplace to narrow down which brands and scent profiles are for you. And because they often arrive in decorative packaging, they’d make excellent gifts during the holiday season , too.

A good place to start would be with universally flattering scents that never go out of style, like Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge 540 or Le Labo’s Santal 33, which are both featured in the brand’s respective perfume discovery set. Or, maybe you'd prefer inventive fragrances by brands like Dries Van Noten, Juliette Has a Gun, or Kilian, which are known to craft some of the most compelling, esoteric scents.

Either way, you can’t go wrong with whatever you choose. As most of these sets are composed of at least three fragrances, you’re sure to find one you love. Below, Vogue ’s edit of the best discovery sets to consider.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Fragrance Discovery Set

Admit it: You’ve been convinced to try Baccarat Rouge 540 —the buzzy scent that’s even earned Rihanna’s stamp of approval. While its woody, floral aroma has been dubbed universally flattering, you may want to sample other iterations like Oud Satin Mood or Aqua Celestia Cologne which are concocted to promote the wearer’s freedom of expression.

Le Labo Fragrance Discovery Set

You simply can’t go wrong with Le Labo, the fragrance brand founded in New York City in 2006. Known for its simplified approach to fragrance and boutique shopping experiences, the brand has generated a sort of cult following. Santal 33 and Another 13 have become two of their most recognizable scents—both of which are included in this perfume collection.

Image may contain: Cutlery, Box, Cardboard, and Carton

Parfums De Marly Feminine Fragrance Discovery Set

Parfums De Marly looks to pair the best of modern and classic charm with respect to French savoir-faire. So it’s no surprise that a few of its fragrances have become vanity favorites. You’ve likely had a penchant for Delina’s rose and lychee notes or Safand’s fruit-forward appeal. For something that smells undeniably feminine, this should be your go-to.

Juliette Has a Gun Magnolia 8-Piece Discovery Set

One of which—titled Not a Perfume—is based on the single note, Cetalox, for a take on traditional warm, spicy scents. Try it, along with seven other fragrances, in this set.

Jo Malone London 5-Piece Cologne Discovery Set

Since the debut of Miss Dior in 1947, the French house has introduced a number of perfumes that can best be described as classics. Today, Dior’s in-house perfumer Francois Demachy continues the legacy with nature-inspired ingredients at the heart of his formulations. We’ve grown to count the Vanilla Diorama as one of our favorite vanilla-forward scents—a perfume featured in this limited edition set.

Cartier Perfumes Les Collections de Parfum

Creed Men’s Holiday Set

When Creed’s Aventus debuted in 2010, it was love at first spritz—prompting the label to create a female counterpart for her. In this British perfumer’s set, you’ll meet two other scents worthy of adding to your vanity. There is Green Irish Tweed which boasts fresh notes of lemon, violet leaves, and ambergris, beside Silver Mountain Water that invigorates through rich notes of bergamot, mandarin, and green tea.

I Downsized My Perfume Collection from 58 to 13—The Mini Versions of My Faves

best travel perfume set

When I packed up my Culver City apartment last November in order to move into my new place in Santa Monica, it became immediately clear that I had an obscenely large, completely unhinged perfume collection:  58  if we want to chat specifics. I'm  a Taurus through and through, so even though I stubbornly insisted on packing every last one and taking it to my new, much smaller apartment, upon arrival, I was deluged with regret. Suffice to say, I quickly abandoned my packrat ways and painstakingly downsized my  perfume collection from 58 to 13. (I will say that I have about 20 additional bottles hiding out at my parent's house in Arizona, so I can't act all that high and mighty.)

Of course, I only kept the perfumes that I wear most often and consider prized possessions, all of which are handily available in  nibble-friendly travel sizes to boot. People frequently ask me about my fragrance collection or what my favorite scents of all time are , and if you keep reading, you'll uncover the answers. And since the majority are pretty steep investments if you spring for the full size, I led with their more affordable travel-size alternatives. Keep scrolling, the 13 best travel-size perfumes, according to me, are just ahead.

1. Glossier You Solid Eau de Parfum

Glossier You Solid Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Ambrox, ambrette, musk, iris root, pink pepper

Glossier You is already an iconic fragrance in its own right, and it definitely has to be in my top 10 favorite perfumes of all time. The brand somewhat recently relaunched the cult-loved scent in solid form, so you can bask in its milky, ambery, musky perfection, any time, anywhere. I actually have the full size and two of the solids— that's how obsessed I am with this perfume.

Glossier You Eau de Parfum

2. Ellis Brooklyn Rrose Eau de Parfum

Ellis Brooklyn Rrose Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Centifolia rose, Sicilian lemon, musk, patchouli, peony, rhubarb

I own eight—yes, eight—of Ellis Brooklyn's stunning clean and sustainable perfumes (Bee, Salt, Sweet, Super Amber, Après, Fable, Fawn, and Rrose), but if I had to choose a favorite child, I'd easily select the latter. It's beautiful, classic, and entirely luxurious. It's the kind of scent I can imagine wearing on my wedding day. I actually received the travel size from the brand when it launched, and I loved it so much that I bought the full size as soon as it was available. I highly recommend it for the floral perfume connoisseurs out there. 

Ellis Brooklyn Rrose Eau de Parfum

3. Tom Ford Bitter Peach Private Blend Eau de Parfum

Tom Ford Bitter Peach Private Blend Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Pêche de vigne, blood orange, patchouli

Bitter Peach is my favorite fragrance of all time. I have never smelled something so juicy, complex, and all-around addicting. It lingers and melts into your skin for a really warm and beautiful finish, but the mix of peach, davana (an aromatic herb native to India), and patchouli is so unique—I've never smelt anything like it. I can't get over it, and the second I spritzed it, I knew it was over for me and every other perfume I ever claimed to love. Buy the travel size (and perhaps eventually the full size), and it will be the best thing you gift yourself maybe ever. Normally, I say fragrance and perfume are extremely subjective, but this bottle just might be the exception.

Tom Ford Bitter Peach Eau De Parfum

4. DedCool 03 "Blonde" Eau de Parfum

DedCool 03 "Blonde" Eau de Parfum

Key Notes : Juniper berries, pomelo, saffron, accord cuir, black violet. cristal rose, blonde woods, raspberry vetiver

I love this perfume from sustainable, nontoxic, and vegan fragrance brand DedCool, and it's been a heavy hitter in my rotation ever since I discovered it a little more than a year ago. (Also, if you care about this kind of thing, it's the most-loved perfume in my collection whenever I ask guys to rate their favorites.) The brand says, "You attract what you are. This scent smells like you'll get stopped on the street when you walk by—a smell that everyone around you will be thinking about all day," and honestly, I couldn't agree more considering that's pretty much been my experience with it!

DedCool 03 "Blonde" Eau de Parfum

5. Kilian Paris Good Girl Gone Bad Eau de Parfum

Kilian Paris Good Girl Gone Bad

Key Notes:  Tuberose absolute, jasmine, narcissus, orange blossom, osmanthus

No one's fragrance wardrobe is complete without one of Kilian's bewitching fragrances. The brand makes numerous favorites beloved by celebrities and beauty editors alike, but if I had access to your shopping cart and credit card, Good Girl Gone Bad is the poison I'd pick for you, and I can't imagine my scent collection without it. I sure do have a type, so, surprise surprise, this one, which is a member of Kilian's "Narcotics Family,"—fruity and floral with starring notes like orange blossom, osmanthus, and tuberose. Try it in the handy travel size first if you want the dent in your wallet to be less dramatic.

Kilian Paris Good Girl Gone Bad by Kilian

6. Byredo Young Rose Eau de Parfum

Byredo Young Rose Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Ambrette seeds, sichuan pepper, orris, damascena rose, musks, ambroxan

If I had to describe my fragrance MO in one word, it would be "pretty." I tend to like light, floral, semi-sweet scents, but they have to have enough of a base to not lean too saccharine. I love rose perfumes, and this one balances Damascus rose with spicy Sichuan pepper, and headier hits of musk, Ambroxan, ambrette seeds, and orris, It's floral but far from basic. People always want to know what I'm wearing when I'm wearing this and they hug me, and if you ask me, it definitely deserves a spot atop your vanity this season.

Byredo Young Rose Eau de Parfum

7. Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin Eau de Parfum

Serge Lutens La Fille de Berlin Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Rose, violet, pink and black pepper, musk

According to the Serge Lutens website, Lutens considers the perfume-making process an art, not a job—something you'll instantly understand the second you get a whiff of any one of his remarkable French-made fragrance masterpieces. La Fille de Berlin leads with rose, but more unorthodox additions like violet, musk, plus pink and black pepper, reveal said rose's thorns. Rumor has it that Berlin It girl, Marlene Dietrich, was the inspiration for this scent. It's a masterpiece, and it always rakes in the compliments when I wear it.

8. Maison Margiela Replica By the Fireplace

Maison Margiela Replica By the Fireplace

Key Notes:  Pink pepper, orange flower petals, clove oil, chestnut accord, gaïac wood oil, cade Oil, vanilla accord, Peru balsam, cashmeran

Say hello to Replica's best-selling perfume, and my personal top pick from the collection, By the Fireplace. While it might incite cozy thoughts complete with a crackling fire, roasted chestnuts, toasty marshmallows, and a floppy cocker spaniel shrouded in plaid fleece (I'm having fun with this—can you tell?), it's surprisingly perfect all year round. It is, in fact, obsession-worthy.

9. St. Rose Desert Nomad Eau de Parfum

St. Rose Desert Nomad Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Ginger, bergamot, neroli, pepper, clary sage, sandalwood, palo santo, vetiver

Every perfume St. Rose makes is a treat for any perfume lover, and while I quite honestly where all of them (I own the discovery set !), Desert Nomad is the one that I wear the most and requested in its full-size glory. The brand categorizes the scent as "smoky woods"—think a warm yet haunting mix of ginger, bergamot, neroli, pepper, iris, clary sage, sandalwood, palo santo, and vetiver—a composition of notes that I wouldn't think I'd like if I hadn't smelled this perfume.

That being said, it's positively intoxicating, and the way it plays out once it's on your skin is incredibly unique and special. This is a fragrance that has already burrowed itself deep into my heart. Oh, and as if it even needed more brownie points, it boasts over 98% natural and naturally derived ingredients, so you can feel that much better each and every time you imbibe.

St. Rose Desert Nomad Eau de Parfum

10. Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

Key Notes:  Ambrette seeds, sea salt, sage

This beloved Jo Malone London cologne, which is the next best thing to visiting the Cliffs of Dover—complete with windswept hair and salt-crusted skin—is timeless. The scent it leaves behind is so natural and dewy, like how you'd smell if you spent the afternoon outside soaking up the grass, fog, and salty seas. If you're someone who wants something more woody and earthy, but still velvety and luxe, it's the perfect antidote. It makes me feel nostalgic, I just can't pinpoint why. Which almost makes it even more enchanting?

Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

11. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Féminin Pluriel Eau de Parfum

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Féminin Pluriel Eau de Parfum

Key Notes : Iris, violet, rose. jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, vetiver, orange blossom

This delicate perfume smells like a bouquet composed of florals from all around the world: patchouli from Indonesia, Iris from Florence, Rose from Grasse, and jasmine from Egypt. Maison Francis Kurkdjian makes lots of very iconic scents—most notably Bacarate Rouge 540—but this dark horse scent is the one I slyly wear and recommend the most. 

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Féminin Pluriel Eau de Parfum

12. Vilhelm Parfumerie Morning Chess Eau de Parfum

Vilhelm Parfumerie Morning Chess Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Bergamot, Tuscan leather, galbanum, patchouli, black amber

I like to have a variety of perfumes for every mood and occasion, and while I'm not typically a huge fan of ultra-green or fresh scents, this one is such a winner in my book and treads lighter and juicier thanks to the hits of black amber and bergamot. I liken it to the olfactory equivalent of the perfect white T or a luxe set of leather trousers. It's my top recommendation when people ask about Vilhelm's library of scents and is inspired by the grassy Swedish coast.

13. Fenty Beauty Fenty Eau de Parfum

Fenty Beauty Fenty Eau de Parfum

Key Notes:  Magnolia, musk, tangerine, Bulgarian rose, vanilla, blueberry, coconut, geranium, patchouli

Is there anyone on this planet who doesn't want to smell like Rihanna? I feel like the only answer there is no, right? The bottle itself is beautiful and so is the scent. Interestingly, it's comprised exclusively of middle notes and it has a unique, ultra-fine mist that rains down evenly on an entire area of skin—like your chest—without over-saturating. The smell itself is hard to describe, and unlike so many fragrances, it doesn't translate as purely floral, fruity, or saccharinely warm and sweet. It balances magnolia, musk, tangerine, blueberry, and light whiffs of Bulgarian rose absolute, geranium, and patchouli. In my opinion, it's one of the best fragrance launches in the past few years, grab the travel size, and you'll easily understand why. (Plus, I guarantee you'll come back for more!)

Nothing can spark memories of past travels, or inspire dreams of trips to come, like fragrance. Book your flights now, then spritz these scents on your wrists whenever you want to return.

Hermés Un Jardin à Cythère

Un Jardin à Cythère

One whiff of Un Jardin à Cythère will whisk you to the Greek Isles. Hermès perfumer Christine Nagel created the scent based on her memories of Kythira, using a blend of olive wood and fresh pistachio notes to conjure the impression of a garden of dancing trees and golden grasses near the sea.



What could be more L.A. than a scent inspired by a detox juice? For Pacific Chill, Louis Vuitton perfumer Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud took cues from a beverage he sipped while visiting California-based artist Alex Israel (whose designs grace the packaging). Think: a cool, uplifting blend of black currant, carrot seed, cedar, lemon, and aromatic herbs.


CHANEL Paris-Paris

Just as frites make the perfect accompaniment to a glass of rosé, it’s hard to beat the pairing of romantic rose and earthy patchouli. An ode to the bustling French metropolis and the stylish women who call it home, Paris-Paris is as elegant and timeless as its namesake: the perfect pink perfume to pack for your next sojourn in the City of Light.

Jo Malone London Highland Heather

Highland Heather

Don your tweeds for a sensory trek through the herbaceous, wild, and remote land of Balmoral and Brigadoon. The four scents in Jo Malone London’s Highlands collection conjure misty moors, ruined castles, and purple expanses of heather with notes of nettle, achillea, mallow, and heliotrope.

ROJA Isola Blu

Isola Blu

Picture it: A private villa, a secluded island, the scent of fresh citrus and orange blossom drifting through the air. Perfumer Roja Dove conjured a fantasy locale when concocting this fragrance, but that doesn't mean a single sniff won't take you there. And who wouldn't want to go?

LOEWE Paula's Ibiza Eau de Toilette

Paula's Ibiza Eau de Toilette

Jonathan Anderson and LOEWE’s in-house perfumer Nuria Cruelles dreamed up this ode to Ibiza, with notes of coconut water, jungle-green galbanum, driftwood, frangipani, and vanilla.

AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle Clementina

Mediterranean Honeysuckle Clementina

What's that? Positano calling? Embark on a jaunt to the idyllic Amalfi Coast with the latest in AERIN's evocative Mediterranean Honeysuckle collection, a citrus-forward floral that practically begs to be worn while sipping a post-swim spritz.

Assouline Assouline Gstaad Glam Boxed Candle By Assouline

Assouline Gstaad Glam Boxed Candle By Assouline

If the thought of glistening ski slopes in Gstaad sends you into a reverie, this is the home scent you seek. From Assouline's new Travel Collection, which matches fragrant candles with glossy wanderlust sparking coffee-table books, Gstaad is redolent with woody, earthy notes of cypress, cedar, tobacco, juniper berry and palo santo.

by Eau de Parfum

Eau de Parfum

Each of Gallivant's unique and imaginative fragrances is dedicated to capturing the spirit of a specific location. Brooklyn was one of the first in the collection, but—like the borough itself—still retains its lively appeal. Flecked with notes of citrus, smoky incense, spicy cardamom, transparent florals, and amber, it is a scent very much in tune with the melting-pot energy of the ever changing city.

best travel perfume set

A good fragrance can be hard to find, particularly if you travel frequently. You may choose to switch up scents to match your mood or stick to one fragrance that becomes your signature. Either way, when it’s time to take your perfume on the road, you’ll need to have it in a format that travels well.

First, it’s important to consider whether you’re flying. For carry-on baggage, you can only take up to 3.4 ounces of liquids through security. The Transportation Security Administration will require you to check any liquids in excess of that before letting you past the security checkpoint.

As an alternative, you can check your perfume, but there are restrictions there, as well. The TSA limits liquids in checked baggage to 17 fluid ounces. If you’re carrying multiple liquids on the plane with you, your total can’t exceed 70 ounces, no matter how small your individual vials and tubes are.

But no matter how you’re traveling to your destination, there’s an art to taking your favorite perfume along. Glass bottles can break, so you’ll need to pack them carefully to avoid a mess. For extra security, consider storing your perfumes in a leakproof zipper bag. You can also purchase perfume in a travel-friendly format. Even if you have a favorite you wear every day, chances are there’s a more compact version you can set aside just for travel. If you aren’t a regular traveler, a sample size might be enough to get you through one trip.

Travel friendliness isn’t the only consideration when you’re traveling with perfume. Be conscious of where you’re wearing it and how much you’re using. When traveling in close quarters, such as on an airplane or bus, consider some people are sensitive and even allergic to certain scents. You might want to skip applying your scent while in transit and break it out once you arrive.

What to Look For

  • In recent years, the trend has shifted toward lighter, more subtle scents rather than the stronger fragrances that were popular in previous decades. It helps that today’s manufacturers know how to create a lightweight scent that lasts.
  • If you’re using stronger perfume in a spray bottle, it sometimes helps to spray it in the air and walk through it versus applying it directly.
  • Roll-on perfumes can be more travel friendly. They’re less prone to leaking. Some are so compact, you can even store them in a pocket or inside your purse when you aren’t traveling for easy access throughout the day.
  • If you like to switch up your fragrance from one day to the next, you can find sets that include multiple small vials of perfume. With the right case to tote them around in, you’ll be ready to take your stash on the go.
  • Multisets of smaller fragrance vials can also be a great gift. You can even find some that come in appealing packaging that’s ready-made for gifting.
  • Some perfumes are made from natural oils to give you a fresh scent without chemicals and dyes.
  • Perfumes that build in pheromones are designed to work with your body chemistry to create a scent that’s specific to you. This can be a great way to establish a signature scent that sets you apart from the crowd.
  • If you’re frustrated with how your perfume fades over the course of the day, there are things that you can do to extend its life. Moisturizing your skin using unscented lotion can help give you a base that will ensure the fragrance sticks. Also, always make sure you apply your perfume fresh out of the shower, then dry your skin.
  • If you’ve been told to apply perfume to your pulse points, there’s a reason. Those areas stay warm throughout the day, allowing your perfume to react to that heat and keep you smelling great.

More to Explore

The discovery of perfume has been credited to a woman named Tapputi, whose invention was documented on clay tablets estimated to date all the way back to between 1000 to 2000 BC. Egyptian society latched onto perfume as a great way to enhance natural beauty. They created perfumes by mixing unscented oils with natural ingredients that provided a fragrance. Scents trended toward floral and woodsy.

Originally, perfumes were made using natural materials, but today, manufacturers combine synthetic and natural ingredients as a more practical solution. Still, today there’s a drive toward natural ingredients that create a fragrance without introducing chemicals.

Travel Friendly Perfumes

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!

In This Travel Perfume Article:

  • Travel Perfume Sprays
  • Travel Perfume Rollerballs
  • Solid Travel Perfumes
  • Travel Perfume Brushes
  • Refillable Travel Perfume Atomisers

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!

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.

The 40 Best Perfume Gift Sets That Are Dreamy and Delightful

A gift set filled with woody, floral, citrusy, and fresh fragrances are always a good idea.

best travel perfume set

We independently evaluate all recommended products and services. If you click on links we provide, we may receive compensation. Learn more .

InStyle / Reese Herrington

Let me paint the picture: You would painstakingly wander the store, sniffing each of their holiday and year-round scents to find the perfect marriage of body washes, lotions, and mists (usually a matching set but sometimes you would become a little scent mixologist). A real pro did three for themselves and three as gifts to knock a name or two off their list. 

My fragrant present options (and budget) has upgraded since then, but the sentiment remains. It’s fun to gift perfumes to our loved ones—there’s so much memory, nostalgia, and emotion tied into the scents we wear and love. Curate that signature scent adventure by gifting the recipient a perfume gift set. Whether they have a go-to scent and you find them the set with the matching hand lotion and travel spray or they want the sensorial excitement of a discovery set, we have options on this list for every scent and format preference and budget.

Discovery Sets

Pacifica moon moods spray perfumes travel set.

We love Pacifica for affordable, high-quality beauty products that are also kind to the planet. Exhibit A: These mini perfume sprays are vegan, cruelty-free, made from clean ingredients, and come in sustainable (and super cute!) packaging, too. This set contains five moon-inspired scents with something for every mood. From the floral Dream Moon filled with pink rose to the sweet vanilla Silver Moon, to the sandalwood Neon Moon, it’s a perfect choice for that friend who’s always roping you into witchy new moon rituals.

Being Frenshe Mood Boosting Perfume Discovery Set

Ashley Tisdale’s wallet-friendly line of cosmetics has become another favorite of ours in recent months, thanks to its delicious scents and clean formulations. Inscribing itself within the “functional scent” trend , this set of gorgeous blends made from natural ingredients and essential oils is designed to help boost your mood. Each miniature perfume is made to help uplift or relax your giftee, with soothing Cashmere Vanilla, joyful Solar Fleur, balancing Bergamot Cedar, uplifting Citrus Amber, and relaxing Lavender Cloud.

Amouage Odyssey Discovery Set

Fans of all things poetic will certainly appreciate this discovery set from Omani perfumery Amouage. Dubbed “Odyssey,” it contains 10 tiny spray bottles of the brand’s most popular fragrances — all of which will take you on an aromatic journey. Evocatively named Enclave, Meander, Boundless, Search, Purpose, Crimson Rocks, Ashore, Material, Lineage, and Guidance, they’ll get a little taste of each. We love that they all have their special spot in the gift box, almost like jewels. And we’ve been known to toss one into our clutch for an adventurous night out.

Jo Malone London Cologne Discovery Set

Jo Malone is a super luxurious brand beloved by the likes of Meghan Markle and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, so the option to snag a treat from the label for just $20 is more than fine by us! This discovery set comes with five teeny vials of Jo Malone’s best-selling fragrances, the names of which should give you an idea of what to expect from their scents: Wood Sage & Sea Salt, English Pear & Freesia, Peony & Blush Suede, Wild Bluebell, and Nectarine Blossom & Honey. The samples may be small, but these are potent scents — so one spritz at a time is more than enough for your giftee to smell heavenly all day long.

Boy Smells Fragrance Discovery Set

Boy Smells has risen to prominence in the last few years thanks to its playful, genderless candles — but their fragrances are equally covetable. This gift set is perfect for your loved one to figure out which perfume they love the most, but if their answer is “all of them,” that’s totally OK too — and extremely relatable. The set runs the gamut of fragrance families, including the aptly named Woodphoria, Flor De La Virgen, and Marble Fruit, along with the more nuanced blends, like earthy Cashmere Kush and sweet mossy Hinoki Fantôme. Even better, each one is vegan and formulated without harsh chemicals, like parabens and phthalates.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Mini Fragrance Wardrobe for Her


Francis Kurkdjian takes the French tradition of perfumery and turns it into an experience unto itself. The maison ’s aim is to allow women to move away from the idea of a signature perfume, and instead to choose a scent according to her mood that day. Enter: This fragrance “wardrobe,” which is literally designed to be used the same way as a clothes closet — taking a beat, getting in touch with your emotional state, and picking something to match your mood. There’s no wrong answer here, either, as the set is made up of Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s eight best-selling fragrances.

D.S. & Durga Big City Jams Eau de Parfum Set

First things first: Check out the awesome box this perfume set comes in. We’re suckers for some very cool packaging, and this one more than ticks that category. But that’s hardly surprising when it comes to D.S. & Durga, a brand that has “cool” at its heart and very foundation. Each of these little perfumes was inspired by all the things the brand’s cofounders love, from NYC bistros to faraway grapefruit groves, promising an eclectic and unexpected set.

Creed Women's Fragrance Inspiration Kit

With five sample bottles nestled in a beautiful white box, this gift set comes courtesy of traditional French perfumery CREED, which was established in 1760. The selection includes Aventus For Her, a fruity and floral scent with notes of green apple and rose, Love in White, a blend of iris, jasmine and magnolia, and just a touch of fruitiness, Royal Princess Oud, an intriguing mix of bergamot, blackcurrant and oud, and finally, Acqua Fiorentina, a fruity little number rife with grapefruit, apple and plum accords.

Byredo La Sélection Boisée Eau de Parfum Collection

This three-piece perfume sampler is a must, and especially so for anyone who loves the holidays solely for the pine. All three perfumes have a woodsy base, but each is layered with unexpected middle and top notes, to create a trio of totally unique perfumes. Black Saffron is a cocktail of snappy juniper berries, fresh pomelo, blond wood, and earthy vetiver, while Super Cedar mixes rose petals and Virginian cedarwood with musk and Haitian vetiver, and Mojave Ghost surprises with notes of rich amber, sweet violet and a duo of calming woods, sandalwood and cedarwood.

Armani Les Eaux Armani/Privé Fragrance Discovery Set


Your friend with a taste for luxury will fall head over heels for this fragrance discovery set from Italian designer label Armani. Set in an opulent-looking black coffret, these five small, multicolored pastel perfumes are encased in smooth, round-top vessels that double as exceptional décor. The set contains peony-inspired Pivoine Suzhou, sophisticated Rose Milano, rich and heady Jasmin Kusamono, earthy Thé Yulong, and effervescent Vétiver d'Hiver.

Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler Set

The Sephora Fragrance Discovery Set has been my go-to gift for years. For well under $100, the box contains 16 trial size vials for your recipient to sniff and wear to her heart’s desire. Then trade the included coupon in for a full-size bottle of the one she liked best. It’s all the fun and playfulness of a discovery set with the thoughtfulness of a full size bottle and the options are so great she’ll have a hard time choosing just one.

Rollerballs & Mini Bottles

Kilian paris mini perfume discovery set.

Hailing from sensual, modern Parisian brand Kilian, this sampler set nails the luxury set to give your most fanciest friends — all without breaking the bank. It’s made up of five sample-sized vials brimming with the floral numbers, Good Girl Gone Bad and Love, Don’t Be Shy, the smoky spice Straight to Heaven, White Cristal and Angels Share, topping it off with the dangerous-sounding Black Phantom - “Memento Mori,” which blends rum, coffee, and… cyanide. There’s a first for everything.

Gucci Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum Rollerball and Mascara Set

We’re high key obsessed with Gucci’s Flora scent collection, with their stunning flower-adorned, colorful packaging — and we’ve got to give bonus points for “Flowers” singer Miley Cyrus starring in the campaign for Flora Gorgeous Gardenia. The perfume gives off top notes of red berries, followed by frangipani flower, on a metaphorical bed of patchouli and brown sugar. This beautiful gift set contains a rollerball version of the perfume that you can take on the go, along with the most luxurious-looking mascara we’ve ever seen, dubbed L’Obscur.

Tocca Garden Mini Eau de Parfum Set

There’s something incredibly pleasing about a set of miniature perfume bottles that look like their full-size counterparts — like they belong in a doll’s house or somewhere equally lovely. But these from Italian label TOCCA aren’t just any miniatures: Each is inspired by elements of nature and named after an inspirational woman from history (real or fictional). So you get the poetic Colette, the breezy Stella, the romantic Giuletta, the seductive Cleopatra, and the joyful Simone. Your giftee will love trying on a new persona every time she spritzes one of these fragrances.

Maison Margiela Mini Coffret Set

Maison Margiela may have started out as a clothing brand, but these days, it’s their perfumes that are truly making waves. This stunning coffret comes with five pint-sized versions of the brand’s sleek fragrance bottles, each containing 0.24 ounces of their most iconic scents. There’s the seaside floral Beach Walk, the woody, spicy Jazz Club, the soft floral Lazy Sunday Morning, the cozy and spicy By the Fireplace, and the relaxing musky Bubble Bath. Basically, there’s a perfume for literally any season and occasion.

Estée Lauder 8-Pc. Small Wonders Fragrance Gift Set

Aptly dubbed “Small Wonders,” this collection of feminine bottles from the Estée Lauder Luxury Collection contains eight multicolored vials of scent. With this one box, you’ll be offering someone you love a wide assortment of some of the most timeless scents, including the fruity Tender Light and Sensuous Stars, the floral Dream Dusk and Paradise Moon, along with the woody Radiant Mirage, Blushing Sands, Infinite Sky and Desert Eden.

Acqua Di Parma Le Nobili Eau de Parfum Discovery Set

It doesn’t get much classier than a fragrance by Italian luxury label Acqua Di Parma, so what about three of them? Encased in one of the brand’s quintessential sunshine yellow boxes, embellished with its logo and crest, are three travel-size floral eau de parfum: Magnolia Nobile, where magnolia is married with bergamot, lemon citrus, magnolia, sandalwood, vetiver and vanilla, and Rosa Nobile, where rose reigns over Sicilian mandarin, Calabrian bergamot, pepper, peony, ambergris and musk, while Peonia Nobile boasts black pepper, raspberry, Turkish rose, amber, patchouli and musk.

Victoria's Secret Mist Collection Gift Set

The nostalgia factor alone makes this a great gift—12 iconic Victoria’s Secret body mists scents packaged in a pink box with a bow. Everyone who grew up in the early aughts had a go-to (I was Love Spell or Pure Seduction, in case you were wondering) and now you get to gift them all to the next generation. The bottles are also slightly larger than you’d expect from a sampler, which is a nice bonus.

BURBERRY Mini Her Eau de Parfum Gift Set

It’s hard not to fall in love with this two-piece set of blush pink perfume products from Burberry. Inside, your recipient will discover a duo of Her Eau de Parfum products, including a rollerball and mini version of the full-size bottle,, which are a medley blackcurrant, blueberry, raspberry, jasmine, violet, white woods, musk, and dry amber. Stunning all year round.

Carolina Herrera Mini Good Girl & Very Good Girl Gift Set

A fun-shaped perfume bottle always makes a splash — and that’s certainly the case with this duo from Carolina Herrera. Complementing the full-size bottle is stiletto vials in her iconic Good Girl and Very Good Girl scents— all with the fruity florals inside. Redcurrant and lychee weave through rose middle notes before descending into notes of vetiver and vanilla. Housed in a simple box, you have yourself a show-stopping gift.

Yves Saint Laurent Mini Black Opium & Libre Eau de Parfum Set

While you understandably might not be down to buy your honey the YSL handbag she’s been eyeing up, there’s nothing wrong with going for the next best thing — a duo of their best-selling perfume, Black Opium and Libre. This floral set was made for the romantics as both scents are seductive, bold, and made for date night.

Body Care and Perfume Sets

Cacharel amor amor gift set.

If the dessert-inspired packaging on this gift set didn’t already clue you in, Cacharel’s Amor Amor scent is a delectably sweet perfume, which features top notes of citrus, blackcurrant, cassia and bergamot. Filled out with middle notes of rose, lily, apricot, lily of the valley and jasmine, and grounded with Virginia cedar, tonka bean, amber, musk and vanilla base notes.

Plus, we’ve always had a soft spot for the words of wisdom Philosophy puts on its bottles.

Coach Dreams Sunset Eau de Parfum Gift Set


Inspired by the thought of embarking on a road trip across America, the Dreams Sunset Fragrance from COACH is filled with notes you’d find from coast to coast. This earthy floral is still slightly sweet, with notes of pear, jasmine, and tonka bean. This pretty gift set in shades of pink contains a 3 ounce eau de parfum, a hand cream and a purse spray, but the item that sets it apart from the rest is the sweet little white pouch adorned with flowers. Just the look of it has us dreaming of summer sunsets after a leisurely dinner under the stars.

Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau de Parfum Gift Set

This perfume gift set from Michael Kors presents our all-time favorite combination of fragrance products: An eau de parfum spray, a body lotion, and a shower gel. All three are scented with the brand’s Wonderlust perfume, which is designed to evoke faraway destinations with the dreamy aroma of almond milk, dianthus and sandalwood. Adding to the overall effect is the white box, decorated with orange and pink ombré palm trees that might well have you looking up flights faster than you can click “gift wrap item.”

Mugler Angel Eau de Parfum 3-Piece Gift Set

The millennials among us will surely remember the hold the Angel fragrance from Mugler had on us in the ‘00s, but just because we loved it as teenagers doesn’t mean it’s not just as good now as it was then. This gift set comes with a little eau de parfum in the original and iconic star-shaped bottle, a body lotion, and a shower gel. And if you’re somehow not familiar with the Angel scent, it’s perfectly floral and sweet, with bergamot, praline, and patchouli leaf.

We’re grateful to By Far for getting straight to the point with this fragrance’s name.

Your friend will get a full-size fragrance refill and a refillable keychain perfume spray bottle coated in cotton candy pink and silver that is cute as the dickens.

Chanel Eau de Parfum Twist and Spray Set

No fragrance story would be complete without including the queen of perfumes herself: Chanel N°5. Enclosed in the elegant white box with a shiny black outline is a gleaming full-size bottle, resplendent in its timeless design, along with a small, rollerball-esque “twist and spray” refillable bottle, doused in shiny black and gold, which looks quite a bit like a Chanel lipstick. If you’re unfamiliar with N°5, it’s a powdery, floral fragrance intensified with notes of heady rose and jasmine.

Tom Ford Rose Prick Eau de Parfum & Lip Color Set

If you’re looking to buy a real treat — perhaps for a graduation or an important birthday — this hyper-luxurious set from Tom Ford is just the thing to honor the celebration. Feminine and sophisticated in equal measure, this candy pink and black-trimmed box comes with a Rose Prick eau de parfum, a romantic yet edgy scent with swirls of Bulgarian, May and Turkish roses, and pepper, spice, and patchouli, as well as a full-size lipstick in Night Mauve.

Skylar Vanilla Sky Eau de Perfume 50 mL + 10 mL Roller Holiday Gift Set

For the caffeine obsessed on your list—you know the one: She drinks more cups of coffee than water per day and can wax poetically about beans the way you do about perfume—this is the gift to bring her into your world. Skylar Vanilla Sky has notes of cappuccino, vanilla, and caramelized cedar to entice your friend and the vibe is like a cozy, but beautiful and luxe, coffeehouse. Plus, the brand spends just as much time on their formulas as your bff does picking her favorite brew. It’s a match made in perfume heaven. The set comes with a full size and a rollerball so she can make it her signature.

Ariana Grande Cloud Gift Set

We’ll admit it: Celebrity scents can be hit and miss. There are some that stand the test of time and some that fade quicker than a spritz. Ariana Grande’s scents are one that are balanced and beautiful at a relatively affordable price. This Cloud Set—one of her best scents in our opinion—is a steal; with a full size bottle of perfume, a mini bottle, and a travel-sized body wash. The retro vinyl album box is on our nice list too.

Not all solid colognes are created equal, and it’s safe to say Cremo gave their products a little more thought than competing manufacturers.

Citrus notes are combined with amber musk in this series of solid colognes to produce aromas that smell clean and manly.

Popular scents include Blue Cedar and Cypress, Leather & Oud, and Bergamot and Musk. The smells were dubbed “fresh,” “manly,” and “distinct” by users.

6. Solid Cologne By BushKlawz

The duration of solid perfumes is frequently a problem. Users of balms must endure the discomfort of frequent reapplication because balms don’t hold as much perfume concentration as their liquid relatives. Men’s BushKlawz Solid Colognes are remarkably long-lasting.

They are packaged in 1oz tin cans with stylish labeling. According to its Amazon advertisement, “Be a masculine beast without smelling like one.”

FAQs About Perfumes for Travel

There are a lot of questions that come to mind while choosing a perfume for travel purposes, some of the commonly asked questions are answered below.

Q. What is the number 1 best-smelling perfume?

A. Top of our ranking is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. An accomplished beauty and lifestyle writer, Courtney Leiva.

Q. Which perfume attracts ladies?

A. Women find minty scents and aquatic scents appealing because they smell fresh and suggest good cleanliness. A sanitary image may be enhanced by using cologne with an aquatic or minty accord, which is crucial while trying to impress girls.

Q. Which lasts longer Attar or perfume?

A. While fragrances come in the shape of sprays, genuine attars are more like oils. Attars are made from plant materials that are transformed into oils and are highly concentrated. It makes no sense to avoid perfumes because they typically include alcohol, which extends their shelf life.

Q. Can I carry perfumes in my carry-on luggage?

A. Yes, you can carry perfumes in your carry-on luggage. However, make sure they comply with the airline’s liquid restrictions and are properly sealed to prevent any leakage

Q. Which type of perfume is ideal for travel?

A. It is advised to choose compact or travel-sized perfumes when traveling. These are not only easy to transport, but they also comply with airline requirements.

Q. How can I make my perfume last longer during travel?

A. Applying perfume to pulse areas like the wrists, behind the ears, or on the neck will help it linger longer while you’re traveling.

Your international trips can be even more enjoyable if you select the best perfumes. You may improve your trip experience, make lasting memories, and leave a fragrance trail wherever you go with a carefully picked variety of scents.

There is a perfume that perfectly expresses your wanderlust, whether you choose floral, fruity, or woodsy scents. So be ready for a perfumed adventure full of fresh experiences and fragrant thrills by packing your baggage and spritzing on your favorite fragrance.

These travel perfumes will help you feel cool, calm and collected before your next flight

Catching flights? These scents will help ease your nerves

Travel perfumes: perfumes from Chanel, Being Frenshe, YSL, ZARA pictured in a pink and purple template

While you might already have your vacation perfume sorted, these designated travel perfumes will help to keep you cool, calm, collected and smelling great until you reach your destination and beyond.

When it comes to traveling, things can get a bit hectic, whether you're coping with delays and cancellations or long-haul airport waits. This is why a calming or confidence-boosting scent can truly make all the difference.

So, for all our anxious flyers and fragrance-obsessed readers out there, here's a roundup of the scents that make the best travel companions, according to the experts...

The best travel perfumes to get your from A to B

To help decode which scents fulfill our travel requirements, we've enlisted Natalia Ortiz, Chief Commercial Officer at  The Fragrance Shop and Rebecca Herd, fragrance expert at The Perfume Shop to share some insights. But first, let's meet the travel scent contenders before we really delve into all the technical perfume note intel...

RRP: from $14.99 for 0.84 fl. oz.

This essential oil, roll-on perfume from Being Frenshe has a blend of fresh lavender, milky sandalwood and sweet cardamom and is described as: "Calm, relaxed and dreamy"

And if you're worried about its longevity and scent power, don't be! I personally love these Being Frenshe scents, especially the 'Bergamot Cedar' one because it's so cozy. It really clings to the skin, creating a beautiful skin scent that really does last. 

RRP: $39.90 for 3.04 fl. oz.

This perfume also doubles as a great holiday scent thanks to the blend of orange blossom and neroli, along with calming ylang-ylang—which Ortiz recommends for anxious flyers.

RRP: from $80 for 1 fl. oz.

Another soothing lavender scent, this Jo Malone perfume features a blend of grapefruit, English lavender and silver birch. It is on the woodier side, but thanks to the floral and fruity notes, it's as comforting as it is long-lasting.

RRP: from $85 for 1 fl. oz.

Recommended by Ortiz, 'Beach Walk' features notes of bergamot, heliotrope, coconut milk, lemon and pink pepper. It's fresh, beachy and floral—ideal both for travel and for a light vacation scent. It's also an Eau De Toilette, so it won't be too overpowering and will fade nicely.

RRP: from $95 for 1 fl. oz.

Not only is this Dua Lipa's favorite perfume but it also features a blend of warm florals, that are both bold and comforting, thanks to its notes of lavender, orange blossom and musk accord.

RRP: from $100 for 1.7 fl. oz.

With notes of pink pepper, jasmine, amber and patchouli, this perfume is the perfect blend of floral and spicy, which will envelop you in warmth. The scent is described as 'ever-changing' so you won't get sick of the aroma during your journey.

The dos and don'ts of perfume when traveling 

Best perfume notes for anxious flyers.

  • Recommended calming notes: Lavender, jasmine, rosemary, lemon and ylang ylang

If you find flying (or any kind of travel) anxiety-inducing, treating yourself to a comforting scent, that grounds you and soothes any racing thoughts could be the way to go.

Ortiz says: "Flying isn't a breeze for everyone, but taking a perfume on board with you can help soothe your nerves, help you relax to promote sleep and help with the end of flight freshening up. 

"Calming notes such as lavender, jasmine, rosemary, lemon and ylang-ylang can all help promote sleep and ease anxiety."

Herd agrees that lavender is an especially good note to look for if you have a fear of flying or find the airport process very stressful (we can relate!), thanks to its calming properties. She also adds: "We would always suggest if you are in a small space like an aircraft you don’t want to be wearing a really strong perfume as you want to think about others around you. Something fresh and light would be perfect."

To get the most out of your perfume and to ensure you're surrounded by those soft and cozy aromas for as long as possible, spray your perfume on your pressure points. You could also try the Vaseline perfume trick , which can help the notes stick to your skin and boost their longevity. 

What perfume notes should we avoid when travelling?

  • Notes to avoid: Leather, tobacco and coffee 

As for what scents to steer clear of, if you need to be in close proximity to others or find that some scents make you feel nausea—especially first thing in the morning—Ortiz draws our attention to heady, long-lasting perfumes that house woody or musky base notes.

"When it comes to flying, a lighter scent is not going to overpower you, but you want to pick long-lasting notes such as musk and woods, particularly if they're in the base fragrance note. These tend to evaporate slower than fruity or floral notes," Ortiz advises.

"Heavy single scents such as leather, tobacco and coffee might be too much as you're traveling, as they're brightening notes which can make you feel more awake and alert", she added.

Herd also suggests avoiding stronger formulas like elixirs or parfums that have a higher concentration of oils (which do make them last longer on the skin so are stronger in scent). Instead, opt for an eau de toilette.

So while we long oud perfumes and unique woody blends, it's perhaps best to save them for your date-night perfume rotation—or your office perfume game.

Ortiz also remarks that, because we all have different preferences, "it's also worth discovering which notes you like, that are nostalgic, and ones that may even make you feel a little nauseous if in the wrong environment such as flying."

Can flying affect your perfume?

Another important thing to note when flying is that the air pressure can affect how your perfume smells. Ortiz explains: "At higher altitudes, the air is thinner and has less moisture, which can cause the top notes of a perfume to evaporate more quickly. 

"Top notes are the ones that give your fragrance the initial scent impact and are usually the most volatile oils, like citrus oils for example. These can evaporate in higher altitudes which can lead your fragrance to smelling different than you remember." 

So, keep that in mind when you're selecting your scents, and before you pack your fave perfumes in your carry-on, check that it's within the liquid requirements. If it isn't, instead spritz it on your skin before you leave for the airport and stow it safely in your haul luggage!

7 Russia-scented perfumes: Inspired by Winter, Cheburashka, Chekmate and more

best travel perfume set

The scent of GUM — “Ciel de Gum” by Francis Kurkdjian

best travel perfume set

French perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, while visiting Moscow, was impressed by the architecture of the legendary Moscow department store on Red Square. In 2013, to mark GUM’s  120th anniversary, he released the “Ciel de Gum” fragrance that’s dedicated to the historical building. According to the main concept, the amber hints are intended to recall the aroma of expensive boutiques; the cinnamon and red pepper chords to evoke the Gastronom No. 1 store; while the woody and floral fragrances tend to immerse the senses in the New Year’s atmosphere of the city’s historic center.

Where to buy: Randewoo , 32,106 rubles ($428) for 70 ml.

The scent of birch sap from Ladanika

best travel perfume set

Spring, the first green leaves, and birch sap — this is how the creative perfume project, Ladanika, describes the new fragrance from perfumer Elena Markova that was released in March 2021. The composition includes white musk, aldehydes,as well as  tar and grass, which promise to invigorate you with “the life-giving energy of early spring” all year round.

Where to buy: Ladanika , 3,950 rubles ($53) for 15 ml.

The scent of Soviet cartoons from Soyuzmultfilm

best travel perfume set

The aroma of honey and caramelized milk (think of Winnie the Pooh) and buns with raspberry jam (think of Karlsson-on-the-Roof, the fairy tale by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren).

The watery and earthy aroma with a hint of juniper twigs comes from Hedgehog in the Fog, the cult Soviet cartoon by Yuri Norshtein; while the scent of oranges is inspired by Cheburashka, another popular Soviet cartoon character. They are colognes released by the Soyuzmultfilm studio on the occasion of its 85th anniversary. The fragrances are designed to recreate the atmosphere of a Soviet childhood and the popular cartoons of that era.

Where to buy: Library of Aromas , 1,950 rubles ($26) for 30 ml.

The scent of Siberian winter — “Russian Leather” from Memo Paris

best travel perfume set

A -50°C winter, a snowy pine forest, a herd of reindeer, and the sun’s winter rays and snowflakes melting on the skin — these are the associations evoked by the “Russian Leather” collection of French perfumery Memo Paris. Mint, rosemary and cedarwood form the basis of this eau de toilette, followed by the fiery notes of tonka bean, patchouli and sage. The fragrance also contains a new chord, which perfumers called “frozen fougère” (“frozen fern”), reminiscent of the winter forests of Siberia.

Where to Buy: Memo Paris , $300 for 75 ml.

The scent of youthful Moscow — Gosha Rubchinskiy and Comme des Garçons

best travel perfume set

This fragrance from the popular Russian designer and Japanese fashion house, CDG, is based on angelica root and buchu plant extract. Also present are hints of mandarin, chamomile, styrax, vetiver and patchouli. According to its creators, it recalls the smell of “youth and freedom” in Moscow parks, while the bottle, bearing Rubchinskiy’s name in Cyrillic, recalls the design of the cult Soviet perfume, Krasnaya Moskva (Red Moscow).

Where to Buy: DSML E-Shop , £65 ($73) for 100 ml.

The scent of tea — “Russian Tea” from Masque

best travel perfume set

Summer evening, a campfire, the smell of wild herbs, raspberries and hot black tea from the thermos: the perfume’s Italian creators were inspired by hiking in the Russian forest and hearty get-togethers around the campfire under the starry sky. The composition is based on raspberries, black pepper, mint, black tea, magnolia, as well as birch, leather and incense.

Where to buy: Amazon , $153 for 35 ml.

The scent of a Russian fighter jet — Su-75 Checkmate

best travel perfume set

Glass, metal, engine and cockpit all form the basis of this perfume that has the scent of the fifth-generation Russian fighter, Checkmate, which was developed by the state corporation Rostec and the Perfumers’ Guild of Russia.

The perfume’s release is timed to coincide with the international premiere of the aircraft’s prototype at the Dubai Airshow 2021. It contains elements of metal alloys, glass and the leather trim of the cockpit, combined with hints of juniper, patchouli and oak moss.

Alas, the perfume is currently available in a limited edition only, and is not freely on sale.
