Rollerball Fragrances, The Best Way To Scent While On Holiday

Convenient, portable, and a great way to try out a new scent too.

Just like how you pack your skincare and makeup essentials, you’ll want to take along your favourite fragrance on your holiday. The only thing is, your bottle might not be the best travel companion because of its weight or design. Your best solution (besides transferring your perfume to a portable spray bottle) might well be to get a rollerball perfume. If you can find one of your favourite scent, great. If not, we say get one of these, because every holiday should come with it a new set of experiences and scent memory, right?

For the not-so-experimental type, you’ll never go wrong with a rose perfume. This also has notes of blackcurrant, freesia and white tea to keep the fragrance more interesting and layered. Philosophy Amazing Grace Ballet Rose Eau De Toilette, $25 for 10ml, from Sephora
Best for the spirited traveller, this rose scent has notes of peony and lychee to keep it light and refreshing. Tom Ford Beauty Black Orchid Eau de Parfum, $68 for 6ml, from Sephora

If you’re embarking on an Eat, Pray, Love pilgrimage to find yourself, this fresh, woody scent with notes of bergamot, lemon, pepper, incense, pine needles and sandalwood is the exotic companion you need to match your complicated feelings.   Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Roller Ball, approx. US$23.45 (S$32) for 10ml, from Net-a-Porter
Sometimes, we just need a holiday to get away from it all, to wander – without the need to find ourselves, or meet anyone’s expectations – and to just relax. If so, this scent, with notes of soothing vetiver, chamomile and sandalwood, is the one to tote along.
