I own five bags in total and in each bag, you will always find two things kept even when I’m not using any: Oil blotting sheets and a mini-sized perfume. Given my super oily and sweaty skin, it’s hard to survive without both. So, when I’m getting ready in a hurry, the only thing I want to worry about is my hair. Because they hardly listen to me!
More on that later because this post is all about the travel-friendly perfumes I own.
Please note that most scents do not linger on my skin for long. After showering, I apply Johnson’s baby lotion, wait for 15-20 minutes and then, apply perfume. And I like to apply it on my clothes as well.
Zara Eau De Toilette Roll On
These ones have a roll-on mechanism and work well in dispensing adequate product. I have also used them on my underarms after long hours of continuous activity after wiping that area with a tissue.
My favourite was Zara woman which has now been discontinued. It was very feminine and stayed for the longest on my skin.
My next favourites are ‘Femme’ and ‘Oriental’. I also have a rose and fruity one which I’m not a fan of. In fact, I don’t like rose-based fragrance at all. I like the fruity ones only in shower gels.
Price: Rs.390 for 10ml.
This is my absolute favourite of the lot. In fact, it’s the most I like out of all the Marks & Spencer’s fragrance line. It’s not too strong and pretty elegant. It has a spray mechanism. I have reviewed two more scents from this range in THIS POST.
Price: Rs.799 for 25ml. Also, available for Rs.499 for 10ml.
New U Pocket Perfume
I came across these mini-sized perfumes while standing at the billing counter line. You know how it is, right? They like to keep temptations right in front of our eyes, at the perfect timing when they know we hardly have minutes to decide. So, I bought all four.
They are not very long-lasting. On days, I used them, I found myself reaching for them often. But then a lot of fragrances don’t last for long on me.
Price: Rs.149 for 10ml
What are your top bag essentials? Do you also like to keep a mini-sized perfume with you always?
