Travalo Refillable Perfume Spray

You have a favorite fragrance. You want to take it along with you - perhaps to work, for a long weekend, or on an airplane. You don't want to take the whole bottle. You don't want to pack it in your luggage and hope it doesn't leak at altitude. What do you do?

For years, I looked for reasonably priced, small spray bottles that I could refill. I looked at department stores and discount stores, but I never found one I liked that was "the right price." Then, I started buying bottles in bulk. If you don't want to order hundreds of fragrance spray bottles, Travalo's Refillable Perfume Spray is a tremendous option.

Travalo is a finger-sized perfume atomizer that replaces the need to carry a heavy glass perfume bottle. It makes traveling with your favorite fragrance simple. It's newly available in the United States and Canada, and it’s great for on-the-go gals. Travalo is available in a variety of colors and has the TSA stamp of approval. It’s a travel essential, but also great for purses, gym bags, and the office.

Travalo fills directly from almost any fragrance bottle with a removable spray head. Take your Travalo straight out of the packaging, and it's ready to use immediately. Simply remove the nozzle from your fragrance bottle, pump Travalo up and down on the tube, and you can be ready to go in a few seconds.

I love the way it fills. I don't need a funnel, and there's nothing complicated for me to take apart. I can't tell you how much expensive fragrance I've wasted over the years, spilling it as I tried to fill a little spray bottle. What's even worse are those fragrance bottles with non-removable tops. Don't get me going. Why do manufacturers do that?

Travalo will give you about 50 sprays. It has an integrated fill-level indicator window to show how much fragrance you have left, so you never run out unexpectedly. It's aircraft-approved, 98% recyclable (but why would you discard it?), and has no dangerous glass parts - features to love! Not only that, it comes with a lifetime guarantee.

The company sent me a Travalo Classic, which is available in several colors. It costs $15.99. There is another, newer model, the Travalo Excel, which is a little more expense, but comes with a case. I think the Travalo is a great buy. I wish it had been available when I was looking for a travel spray container.

You can find it online at this Travalo link. There is also a store locator at the site. This is a "gizmo" fragrance fans should have. InStyle and Oprah have discovered it. You can too. I think I'm going to order a few for holiday gifts.

Thanks for this information, Charlestongirl! I've been contemplating the purchase of an atomizer ever since I began travelling by plane regularly, but didn't want to lay down close to $200 for the Creed one -- not that it isn't beautiful. This is a lovely and affordable option. Hope kitty and you are feeling better!

Hi Joolz! Cool!

Charlestongirl said...

Oh, Walls, I also couldn't bring myself to buy the beautiful CREED one. I thought about the atomizer vs the cost of a bottle of perfume, agonized, and passed.

These work beautifully. I have plenty of (sometimes leaky) glass atomizers, but the Travalos are great for those really special fragrances that deserve something a cut above.

Hi PP, I looked for years! This one is perfect.

Glad you like them, Melisand61!
