I’ve wanted a Travalo, a travel sized refillable perfume bottle, since it first came out, and a few weeks ago, I finally decided to go purchase it. But then I saw the price… €10 per bottle+shipping is a bit too much for this little piece of plastic if you ask me. Especially when you want to buy two or three of these. Now, you already know what I did next, don’t you? Yes, I went on ebay. I first tried to find the original ones for a lower price, but since I had no luck, I decided to get non-original, but really similar ones from this seller for only €4 per piece, which basically means that I got three bottles for the price of one. Pretty good deal, huh?
I’m sure most of you already know how to fill up and use these as there are plenty tutorials on youtube, but in case you haven’t heard about travel-sized refillable perfume bottles before, I have a quick step-by-step tutorial for you.
To fill up the ‘travalo’ with your current favorite perfume, you’ll first need to remove the cap off of your perfume bottle – don’t worry, this won’t break your perfume – and then place the bottom of the travalo on the top of your pefume bottle. Then you’ll just have to pump up the bottle with the same movement you would use to spray perfume on you, and that’s it! Now you can pull off the travalo cap and use it just like your regular perfume.
I have to say that I’m really happy I ordered these. I know I’ll be using them a lot, especially on my travels. I now finally don’t have to worry anymore about my perfume bottles breaking in the luggage, my suitcases being too heavy or running out of space because of the stupidly huge perfumes. Any other travalo lovers out there?
