When packing your toiletry bag for a trip, there are plenty of items to keep on your essentials list, including sunscreen (regardless of the time of year), moisturizer for your skin type and a travel size hand sanitizer. And if you’re a fragrance lover, don’t forget to take a miniature version of your favorite scent with you on the road. Shoppers looking for a new scent or a travel size option you already love, check out this list of our favorite travel scents.

When looking for a perfume you can travel with, you should first make sure it meets TSA requirements (if you’re traveling by plane, of course). This means it should be less than three fluid ounces, although most travel bottles are much smaller. You will also need to determine which type of container best suits your needs. You can always opt for a classic small-sized spray bottle, although a rollerball makes it even easier to apply on the go. Some buyers might also consider a solid scent that will blend easily into your skin and last all day, and even layer well with other scents. Plus, solid perfumes often come in sleek boxes, making them easy to slip into your purse, toiletry bag, or other travel bag, and won’t spill or break.

We’ve included travel sizes of some of our favorite scents on this list, like Gucci Bloom and Vicktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, which come in a rollerball and travel spray, respectively, as well as a solid version of Glossier You, a shopper -loved and affordable fragrance choice. You can also buy a set of three Le Labo mini scents from Nordstrom, so you can keep one in every travel bag, ensuring you’ll never be without your signature scent.

Keep reading for some of our favorite travel scents, including rollers, mini sprays, and solid scents. Many of these picks are available at retailers like Nordstrom, Amazon, and Sephora, all of which offer fast (and often free) shipping, so you’ll be able to add them to your collection in no time.
