The One Thing You Should Never Forget When Travelling (and It May Surprise You)

Mini perfumes used to be the kind of thing your nan would put in your Christmas stocking (remember? They came as gift sets), only to be quickly tossed aside (yes, I'm obviously talking from personal experience, and yes, I feel guilty) because you didn't have any use for them. Oh, how wrong we were. Now as an actual adult, there's one reason mini perfumes are the best: holidays. If you detest the to-ing and fro-ing of the baggage claim area (too much time waiting, plus panicking, and grabbing the wrong case), all you want to do is to pack light and take a carry-on. However, while you might be able to get all your other beauty products in small sizes, perfume can sometimes pose a problem. Where can you get all your favourite scents in miniature form?




It turns out that there are plenty of perfume brands that have cottoned on to this need and have created their iconic scents in smaller, travel-friendly sizes. From Tom Ford to Jo Malone, as well as Chanel and Dior, we've hunted down the mini sizes of all your favourite fragrances. We've even found some other niche brands that are perfect for your holiday.
