Fragrances

When we end our favourite vacation, what remains are the beautiful memories we gathered from our trip. We remember the smell of that tomato paste of the authentic Italian pizza we had, the heavy smell of the Tom Yum soup which was unbelievably unique, the smooth, creamy bakery smell that you sniffed while you were at a famous coffee shop in the UK, and so on. We also remember the songs we listened to during the vacation, and long after we return from our tour, playing that particular song can take us back to the good times we had.

A fragrance strongly contributes to the experience by creating a scent memory associated with the vacation. So if you were wearing CK One during your last India trip, that scent will take you back to your India tour for years to come. 

Travelling with perfumes can be a big hassle as well. Travel-sized perfumes by some big brands are available, which one can take along while travelling. However, not every perfume is released in travel sizes, so the best choices are to carry travel atomizers or roller balls.

Travel atomizers are small bottles which are refillable and come in different sizes like 5, 10, 15, and 30 ml. It is quite easy to carry and gives you the option of carrying multiple perfumes from your collection. Let’s say your first destination is a beautiful beach in Bali, and from there you plan to visit the countryside of Thailand.  So take a perfume with subtle notes of natural sea salt along with fresh floral notes to keep you feeling light and breezy within the misty warm air on your beach visits, and a perfume with spring florals, Patchouli, Vetiver and earthy accords for your countryside tour. Travel atomizers will, without a doubt, make your life easier while travelling. The fear of breaking a full 100ml glass bottle is, therefore, avoidable. 

You can find travel atomizers from the website of Buy Perfume in Bangladesh or the Facebook page - The Bro Code.

Roller balls are also a viable option as they are released only in small sizes. Most importantly, Bangladesh has seen a rise of roller balls in recent times among the perfume users. Famous names in this business are - Zaki’s Perfume Fountain, Perfumance and The Bro Code; all these stores bring different oil versions of famous perfumes available in 3-12 ml sizes, which is super travel friendly.
