Here’s a handy accessory for all you fragrance lovers – a refillable travel perfume atomiser to carry your favourite scent with you, without bringing out your precious flaçons.
At 8.6 cm and 20 g, this is an extremely light vaporisateur – it is apparently made of the same aluminium material as high-tech aircraft. It also has a level indicator window to show you the amount of perfume you have filled or have left.
The best thing about this travel gem? Its mess-free refill mechanism (named Genie-S) which eliminates drips and spills!
Simply attach the base of the bottle to the spray nozzle of your scent and move it up and down; a simple pumping motion fills the vial. Do note that the fragrance bottle you fill the atomiser from must have a removable spray head.
This mini travel bottle is not only great for everyday use, it’s also ideal for decanting fragrances for use during a vacation: According to the brand, it is aircraft-approved and has a unique pressure-regulating system that adjusts to changing air pressure during flights, preventing leaks.
How lovely it is to have that special spritz with you without having to worry about scent spillage or bottle breakage!
Available in different colours at Metro Singapore, Travalo atomisers (5 ml) retail at S$21.90. It doesn’t say on the packaging but I believe the one that I bought is the Travalo Excel which comes in a case of its own.
In a stroke of coincidence, a friend of mine actually discovered something similar at Watsons – a perfume spray produced by Marionnaud. It’s cheaper at S$14.90 but smaller in capacity. I didn’t get a chance to see how much it can contain but it’s certainly less than the Travalo.
