If you are not a perfume lover, you might want to tune off right about here – unless you are naturally nosy, then feel free to stay.
Travelo is a cool gadget. It is a refillable atomizer – with a difference.
All the magazines are raving about it. Cosmopolitan has declared it to be the winner of 2010 beauty awards. And the idea behind it is so simple, like most things in life are. Only you did not think of it, somebody else did, somebody far more clever and - rich, I presume.
Many perfume lovers have a dilemma of poor staying power of perfume on their skin. For this, we like to carry small quantities of decanted perfume in little spray bottles, or atomizers in our handbags.

Travalo does the same. Only it avoids the mess of decanting perfume as there is no spillage. No getting precious juice on your hands, clothes or on your carpet, and that happens a LOT.
You just take the spray head (squeezy thing) off from your big perfume bottle. Now attach the Travalo’s bottom on top of the nozzle peg and pump (press down repeatedly) to see the liquid fill it up – with much satisfaction and no spills, I love it.
Check out the enthusiastic youtube reviews on their website. You don’t have to, but the process of actually seeing a Travalo getting filled up provides much clarity and endless enjoyment. Only a true perfumista would get that.
No more tasting horrid perfume after you have done some decanting, and washed up some thirty seven odd times already – with maximum strength soap. Still the stubborn smell has refused to go away. Why it can’t show the same resilience and character on skin, I wonder.
It comes in many interesting colours, and carries 4ml of perfume in compact lipstick tube style atomizer. The different colours are very handy for differentiating between perfumes. It costs around 10 British pounds and is available from a variety of online etailers. Fun.
Why am I going on and on about Travalo, cuz I love the idea so much. I am sure I am not the first person to say that, and not the last to hear about it. I bet there are more who would appreciate the info.
So tell your friends and spread the joy!
