Fluffy little pick of the week: the Travalo!


This week I am loving this ingenius little gadget that I picked up in Prestwick airport last weekend. While I ADORE the gift of Chanel Beige* that my sisters gave me last Christmas, the subtle fragrance wears off quickly and the giant 200 ml bottle is not ideal for carting around on a day-to-day basis.

Beige beside my Chanel No 5 bottle, for comparison!
Enter the Travalo, a refillable atomiser spray that fits in the palm of my hand and is perfect for slipping into a  handbag or pocket, to spritz on throughout the day. It's foolproof to use, attaching to the nozzle of any perfume bottle and pumping full in seconds. The Travalo comes in a variety of colours - I spotted silver, gold and black - and cost me £9.99, the same price you can purchase it for online. I've been using - and loving - it all week.


*Beige was introduced to the Les Exclusifs de Chanel perfume range at the end of 2008 and a quick sniff confirmed it was my perfect fragrance for day. I'm not great at describing scents, but to me this smells woody and floral, with a powdery finish that reminds me of Chanel No 5. You can buy this range in the Chanel clothing boutique - and not the makeup counter - at Brown Thomas, Dublin.

What a handy little device, I think I need to order myself a travalo.

This thing looks very rude. Although it is obviously an excellent idea.

And they are based in Scotland! The new one is 12.49, but it's much nicer. Travalo Excel.
