    Over half the people surveyed carried their perfumes with them on a daily basis with the common concerns amongst travellers being bottle size, wanting leak proof bottles, which are allowed on planes.
  2. Great use for perfume

    In a short time of perfume obsession, I've amassed a scarrily large amount of samples and scents. Many of which I like perfectly well, but just don't really wear so I went searching for alternative uses for the stuff.
