Haul: Travalo Excel

Have you ever heard of Travalo? I hadn't either until I watched a video by gossmakeupartist. It's a refillable perfume atomizer bottle spray - you just fill it up with your favorite perfume, and it's perfect to carry with you everywhere. It's even aircraft approved, which is genius. To be honest I had forgotten all about ordering a Travalo Excel, so I was quite surprised when a padded envelope arrived for me.

I totally love the idea! You just remove the nozzle of your favorite perfume, and fill up your Travalo by pumping it up and down on the tube. When it's full it contains more than 65 sprays, and you can easily see how much is left in the fill level indicator window. The Excel also comes in a 'crystal case' to protect it when you're carrying it around in your purse, or wherever.

I wasn't really planning on ordering one, but when I noticed that Travalo donated money to the fight against breast cancer for every pink atomizer sold during October, I decided to order one after all. It cost £12.49, which would be about 113,- NOK with today's exchange rate plus international shipping of 23,- NOK. I ordered on a Wednesday, the package was shipped on the follow Thursday, and eight days later it arrived in my mailbox.

Since I have a few perfumes to choose from I haven't quite decided which one to fill my Excel with, but I'm so happy I don't have to bring any glass vials or bottles with me the next time I travel. I also asked Travalo a question about using the same atomizer with several fragrances, and they recommended using one atomizer with one perfume since it's impossible to clean it in between fragrances. I was thinking that it might be a fun way to mix perfumes, and make your own personal fragrance?
