I have been called “high maintenance,” and I don’t deny that. But I have really streamlined my beauty bag packing over the past couple of years of 15 days a month or so of business travel.
One thing I had yet to find a solution for was an efficient way to pack perfume. I wasn’t going to pack my bulky, expensive glass bottle from home for fear it would break, and it took up too much room in the quart-size bag I have to put all the liquids in to fly.
So I resorted to wearing whatever fragrance I could get a sample of when I traveled. Enter the Travalo. This lightweight, portable perfume sprayer is about 3-inches long and holds 5o-65 sprays of perfume, depending on the model.
I saw these recently at a CVS Pharmacy and was intrigued. So when the company and reached out and offered to send me a Travalo to review, I jumped at the chance. But the idea of an “internal pump sytem” to fill the Travalo seemed iffy to me. Would it really be easy to fill it with my fragrance without spilling a drop?
I decided to put my first try at filling the Travalo on video. I happened to be leaving on a trip the next day, so it was time to put it to the test.
As you can see from the video, the Travalo worked great. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to fill the perfume container up from my larger perfume bottle. And I like the way the sprayer works, too. Now my favorite fragrance can hit the road with me.
The Travalo I tested was the Travalo Classic. It retails for $15.99 and is an aluminum container that holds 50 sprays of perfume. Two other Travalo versions hold 65 sprays – the Pure version is a plastic container that retails for $9.99; the Travalo Excel is an aluminum container larger than the Classic that retails for $19.99. These containers have a sleek appearance that would work well for men, too.
