Little Gems: Purse Size Fragrances Crop Up Everywhere

So many fragrances lately have come in what I like to call vat size. Really, this is not ideal. No matter how much you love a fragrance, six ounces of it is most likely far more than you really need. Obviously the price point is much higher as well. There are many I love in those larger bottles. But few I own.

Conversely, it seems some companies are thinking smaller. As in purse size. Not as many out there as I would like, but it’s getting better. Smaller sizes make not only for great portability (and getting perfume through airport checkpoints) but also usually for more affordability.

Viktor and Rolf perfumes have just come out with two smaller sizes of their fragrances. You can now get Flowerbomb in a rollerball and Eau Mega in a purse spray.

The Flowerbomb rollerball is .33 oz, exclusive to Sephora, and sells for $ 22.00. Rollerballs are fun and so easy to stash anywhere. This is also a great way to try Flowerbomb or if you already love it, to have it handy anytime.

Eau Mega is a new favorite of mine. A fresh, green, light floral scent with notes of pear, violet leaf, peony and cedar, it can be worn anytime, and comes in Mini Mega. Mini Mega is a 20ml EDP spray exclusive to Nordstrom and sells for $ 50.00.
