    The best Rollerball perfumes

    This year (2023), the perfume industry has become popular for the rollerball fragrances. Women especially, like to take perfume in their handbag to spritz throughout the day.

    With some perfume bottles often leaning towards the bulky side for carrying in a handbag, the next best thing is a rollerball perfume. Let’s take a look at the best rollerball perfumes.


    The best rollerball perfumes



    What are rollerball perfumes?

    Rollerball perfumes, also known as roll-on perfumes, are a convenient and portable form of fragrance application. They typically come in small bottles with a rollerball applicator on top, allowing you to easily apply the perfume to your pulse points or desired areas.

    The rollerball design offers several advantages. It allows for precise application, as you can control the amount of perfume you apply without wasting any.

    The small size makes it easy to carry in your purse or pocket, making it perfect for travel or on-the-go touch-ups. Rollerball perfumes also tend to have a longer lifespan compared to spray perfumes, as they are less exposed to air and therefore less likely to oxidize.

    Many perfume brands offer rollerball versions of their popular fragrances, allowing you to sample or carry your favourite scents without committing to a full-size bottle.

    They are available in a wide range of fragrances, from floral and fruity to woody and oriental, catering to different preferences.

    To apply a rollerball perfume, simply roll the ball onto your pulse points, such as your wrists, neck, or behind your ears. These areas generate heat and help release the fragrance throughout the day.

    Remember, a little goes a long way, so start with a small amount and add more if desired. Rollerball perfumes can be a great addition to your fragrance collection, offering convenience and versatility.




    Are rollerball perfumes worth buying?

    I would say absolutely, yes. Especially if you travel and don’t want the liquid restrictions at the airport or don’t want to carry a bulky bottle of perfume to work or out for an evening.

    Rollerball versus spray perfume

    We do tend to get a more intense fragrance concentration with a rollerball compared to our traditional sprays.

    Unlike the spray bottle, the rollerball will provide a more direct application, so this is ideal If you are perhaps in an area where spraying a bottle of perfume will impact those around you.

    Have you ever been sitting in a restaurant and the woman at the next table has finished her meal before you and she gets out her favourite scent and sprays it before she leaves?

    It’s not pleasant and I don’t understand why women don’t wait until they are outside to spritz. Nobody else wants to smell your fragrance to that extent.

    Are they value for money? Well, with your traditional spray perfume, you do get more product in the bottle that being said, you would possibly use less of the rollerball perfume because it is a couple of rolls on the skin and you’re done.


    Similar to how perfume is, the rollerball activates when it hits your skin, and then evaporates throughout the day to release its fragrance.

    We do lose a certain amount of spray perfume each time we spray on our wrists or neck in comparison to the rollerball version.

    A great way to test for yourself which is going to last the longest would be to buy the same size rollerball as your perfume bottle and make a note of when you first started spraying or rolling and see which one lasts the longest.

    The same rule applies to storing your rollerball perfume. Keep it in a cool and dry place the same as you would, with your spray, and perfume and away from any light or exposure to heat. This will prevent your scent from degrading.

    Rollerball perfume is applied in the same areas as your spray version so pulse points on your wrists and neck are very common places, but you can also place the rollerball behind the ears.

    This is certainly a lot easier to do with a rollerball than it is with a bottle of spray perfume. Try not to rub your wrists together. As this breaks the fragrance, it is a simple application to roll the ball across your skin until the scent comes through.

    Remember that everyone’s skin is different so that one sent that smells good on your friend or family member may not necessarily smell as good on you so it’s always good to try a sample first.

    Rollerball fragrances will last longer on the skin if the skin is clean and moisturised.

    Travel perfume atomiser

    We all look forward to a holiday each year and sometimes we want to take our favourite perfume or aftershave with us. A travel perfume atomiser is the perfect solution for carrying our chosen scent. We often add a spritz during the evening, or a top up during the daytime if we have a lighter scent to wear.


    Perfume has been around for thousands years and there are so many benefits to wearing your favourite scent.

    Whilst many will purchase perfumes that come in fancy designer bottles, these can be very heavy when taking out for an evening or whilst travelling.

    There is also the risk of spillage if a bottle accidentally breaks in your luggage or hand bag.


    Travel perfume atomiser


    We try aiming for travelling light these days, especially with the cost of booking and enjoying a holiday.

    Everything has to fit perfectly in the suitcase, and the last thing we need are heavy bottles of perfume adding to the weight restrictions.

    We know that there are limits to taking liquids aboard an aircraft, (no more than 100ml )

    If travelling away for a couple of weeks or even a month, our usual bottles will be too bulky for the journey.


    Some may like to take more than one perfume so that we have a different scent for different days and whilst this is a nice idea, it also means taking several bottles.

    Whilst the duty-free section at the airport is very tempting and it’s a great way of purchasing your favourite scent and save yourself some money, such bottles can be too heavy.

    Larger perfume bottles and packaging can be too bulky to fit in the hand luggage.


    At best, we all try to travel as light as possible when it comes to packing, just enough clothes for the duration of the holiday and not taking every pair of shoes in the wardrobe to match every outfit.

    Something that I used to do quite often, until my husband complained that there wasn’t enough room in the suitcase for his clothes!

    Apart from clothing, we have enough to take with us when it’s hair products, sun lotion, cosmetics etc. even more so when travelling with children.

    That’s half the house packed up! If we can reduce the bulk of the weight, it’s a great idea to have your favourite perfume decanted into an atomiser for guaranteed space-saving.

    Travel perfume atomiser 

    It’s worth investing in a travel perfume atomiser and the perfect accessory to take if you are travelling light, perhaps for a weekend away.

    There’s no risk of the glass bottle of your favourite perfume accidentally smashing during travels.

    There’s also the option of taking two or three on holiday with different fragrances in if you are going away for a few weeks.

    These items are a reasonable price to purchase too so they’re an affordable option.


    I think these are a wonderful idea when you can just take a small amount of your favourite scent without worrying about securely packaging a glass bottle in your suitcase.

    We all know how rough some airlines treat our luggage! The clothes would smell divine but a costly scent isn’t cheap to replace. Another option too is taking a few samples of your favourite scent.

    At FM WORLD, a perfume company that sell over 150 fragrances for both men and women, they’ve already thought about the need for perfume atomisers to decant your favourite scent.

    They have a selection of three different colours:

    ■ Black

    ■ Green

    ■ Ecru

    They are suitable for both men and women to use.

    Product description

    Your favourite perfume can always be with you, even if you’re travelling with a small amount of luggage. The twist-up atomiser with a glass refill keeps your favourite fragrance safe while travelling. They come in an elegant, matt aluminium 10ml container.

    The clear container also allows customs at the airport to check the liquid contained inside the atomizer. They may spray a small amount or put the bottle into a specialized machine to detect the contents inside.


    The compact atomiser fits perfectly inside your handbag or hand luggage so that it can be easily reached and applied throughout your journey. The gentle mist that is sprayed from the atomiser means that it sprays directly where you want it, without any wastage.

    Leak proof

    There is no worry about any of your favourite fragrance being distributed onto your holiday clothes or scenting every item in your hand luggage with a leak proof canister.


    When you slide the cover up, you can see exactly how much perfume you have in the container, unlike some perfume bottles that are not always clear glass.


    Unlike a bottle of perfume, these little canisters can be refilled with either the same perfume or a different fragrance.


    Mixing scents

    If you enjoy creating your own individual scent then the atomiser gives you the opposite to mix your own perfume. No one else will smell the same as you when you spritz your unique creation.

    Other benefits

    Another benefit of using a perfume atomiser is that they enable a very gentle spray and a small amount, which can be useful if you like to wear strong, perfumes or aftershave. The mist is distributed evenly without overloading the skin with fragrance.

    The atomisers have been available to buy in shops and online for some time now and are becoming more popular.

    Buy good quality

    Try to choose atomisers that have glass vials as this helps to preserve the fragrance and reduces any chemical reaction with its container that could affect the strength and quality of its perfume.

    FM WORLD atomisers are encased in aluminium, so this helps to make them more durable.

    How to refill

    The perfume atomisers from FM WORLD require a refill/dispenser syringe or nozzle to decant from one bottle to another.

    Other atomiser styles have a hole at its base where you can place it on top of your desired perfume nozzle after removing the spray cap and pumping the perfume directly into the canister. Some will also have an indicator on the side to show when it’s tank is full.

    Take a look at the following article for how to clean your atomiser.


    A travel perfume atomizer is an essential accessory for fragrance enthusiasts on the go. By allowing users to carry their favourite scents in a compact and spill-proof container, these atomizers offer a portable solution for maintaining a fresh and captivating fragrance throughout the day.

    Whether it’s a business trip, holiday, or simply a daily commute, a travel perfume atomizer ensures that you can indulge in your preferred scent anytime, anywhere.

    With a wide range of options available on the market, individuals can find the perfect atomizer to suit their needs and style.

    Embracing the convenience and versatility of a travel perfume atomizer enables fragrance lovers to enhance their travel experiences and express their unique personalities through the power of scent.

    So, pack your favourite fragrances in a travel perfume atomizer and embark on your next adventure with confidence and elegance.

    Travel size perfume

    Travelling abroad is loved by so many, and several years ago, it never caused a problem with travel-sized perfume. Going on holiday these days involves many restrictions when it comes to carrying your daily products, such as shampoo, body lotions, and your favourite spritz.

    The horror of an airport worker confiscating your most expensive bottle of perfume because it exceeded the limit would leave many travellers mortified. We can all handle having an opened bottle of water discarded.


    Designer perfume


    When it comes to a lovely bottle of Gucci or Chanel perfume getting confiscated, that’s a different story.

    We invest so much time in packing our suitcase neatly and carefully placing fragile bottles inside. We tuck them beneath several layers of clothing to ensure they don’t break.

    The last thing you want is your favorite perfume bottle shattered, leaving your entire wardrobe smelling of Armani.

    As delightful as the fragrance is, having it saturate your clothing isn’t ideal.

    Perfume is classified as a liquid, so it falls under the same regulations as other items you might take. The same rule applies if you’re bringing a fragrance with you: 100 milliliters is the maximum allowed.

    These days, we have perfume atomisers available, allowing you to transfer your favourite fragrance into a travel-friendly container and take it with you safely.


    Holiday perfume

    But what if, like myself, you enjoy taking more than one fragrance on your two-week holiday?

    If you’re travelling for longer than a week, it’s nice to have the option to wear a different fragrance each day instead of sticking to the same one.

    The good news is, if you purchase perfume from duty-free shops, you don’t have to adhere to the 3-1-1 rule.

    However, it’s worth noting that perfume bought from duty-free can be more expensive, so if possible, it’s better to bring your favourite sprays from home.

    Travel size perfume

    These days, there is more variety in perfume sizes available. You can purchase travel-sized perfumes in 15-millilitre bottles, which are perfect for taking with you on your travels.

    This allows you to keep the perfume in its original bottle, eliminating the hassle of transferring it into an atomiser and the potential for mess.

    An additional benefit of having a 15-millilitre bottle of your perfume is that it fits snugly in your handbag.



    Handbag size perfume

    When abroad, ladies often opt for smaller handbags when heading out for the evening, whether it’s for a meal or a stroll along the beach. Carrying a 50-millilitre bottle of perfume in your handbag for just an evening out can be quite cumbersome and unnecessary.

    Travel size perfume


    There are perfumes on the market that have a longer-lasting fragrance. This means that once you’ve sprayed it, you can confidently leave the perfume bottle in your hotel room.

    As travellers, we often have a tendency to carry more than we actually need, so purchasing a perfume that lasts around 8 hours is an ideal solution.

    Another viable option, if you prefer not to carry one or two larger bottles of perfume, is to bring along samples. This approach allows you to have a variety of scents at your disposal without the bulk and weight of full-sized bottles. Sampling your favorite fragrances can also be an exciting way to discover new scents and find the perfect one to match your mood or occasion while traveling.

    Up to 46% Off On Perfume Sample Packs 


    Perfume samples come in various sizes, but most contain around 1.5 millilitres each. This provides you with the flexibility to carry multiple sample bottles, allowing you to wear a different fragrance each day of your trip.

    No matter how many you decide to bring, it’s crucial to pack them securely. It’s ideal to place them in a clear plastic bag, as you’ll need to display the contents at the airport security checkpoint when carrying them in your hand luggage.

    This not only ensures compliance with regulations but also helps prevent any accidental spillage onto the clothing you’ve packed, preserving the freshness of your wardrobe during your travels.

    Duty Free perfume

    Remember the times when you’d go on holiday and indulge in a visit to the Duty-Free perfume store? It was one of those little joys to anticipate. You’d find yourself in a vast shop right in the heart of the airport, surrounded by products that were often marked with hefty price tags.

    Yet, somehow, customers seemed to account for these prices within their holiday budget. It became almost a ritual, an essential part of the holiday experience, to explore the aisles of the Duty-Free Perfume store.

    Duty-Free stores were always staffed with impeccably dressed cashiers, often looking as though they were adorned with half of Max Factor’s product range. It was like an extension of the airline’s cabin crew.

    We’d approach the cashier with our boarding pass in hand, even though we never quite understood the need for it. The store shelves were a diverse mix of alcohol, travel accessories, cigarettes, and perfumes. The ‘gadgets’ section was a delightful area to explore first, where you could discover the latest items—something to enjoy while basking in the sunshine during your holiday.

    The perfume section unfailingly captivated the attention of shoppers. The moment anyone entered the Duty-Free store, the elegantly arranged bottles were right there in their line of sight.

    Stacked high, resembling a pyramid or a precarious game of Jenga, each bottle was meticulously placed to entice every passerby, especially the women. There seemed to be an endless selection, almost overwhelming. It was as if no one dared to pluck a single bottle from the shelf, fearing that the entire ‘pyramid’ might come tumbling down. To add to the allure, every bottle appeared to be colour-coordinated, enhancing the visual appeal of the display.

    For customers who knew exactly which fragrance they wanted, a quick in-and-out visit to the shop was all they needed. However, for some, it was a different story. They saw this as the perfect opportunity to explore new scents. After all, there were hundreds of bottles, all neatly stacked and visually enticing, offering the temptation to try something different.

    The men accompanying their wives or partners often braced themselves for a lengthy wait as decisions were pondered. Meanwhile, a glamorous shop assistant was never too far away. She was always ready to extend a hand and offer perfume fragrance strips, allowing customers to explore as many scents as they wished.

    Testing perfume fragrances

    However, there was a drawback with the fragrance papers. After trying three or four new fragrances, they often started to blend, and customers would struggle to remember which one was which. Things have evolved since then. If you ever find yourself at a perfume party, you might receive a tea bag in your welcome pack. It’s not for making a cup of tea, though.

    When you smell several fragrances in succession, the previous scent can mask the next one. To ‘neutralize’ the previous scent, it’s recommended that customers sniff either a tea bag or coffee granules.

    It’s only after the perfect fragrance has been chosen (if you’re fortunate enough to remember which perfume strip it was on) that customers finally check the price tag. It’s a moment that occurs after they’ve handed the bottle to the cashier, who then takes their boarding pass and tallies up the price.

    Midway through the transaction, there’s often a brief contemplation about whether the same perfume might be cheaper on the plane. Nevertheless, the perfume is purchased, and the customer looks forward to taking it on holiday to enjoy.
