Agent Provocateur Perfume and Travalo Review

The Travalo I ordered from Play.com arrived today and I simply cant wait to tell you all about it... more so because I've finally been able to use a gorgeous perfume that I got last year; Agent Provocateur.  So before I tell you about the Travalo, I thought I'd let you know my thoughts on the perfume.

Agent Provocateur
Agent Provocateur Eau de Parfum Purse Spray 25ml
I adore the smell of this fragrance, its everything I look for in a scent; its sexy, seductive, indulgent and overpowering.  Its the things I love about the fragrance that are reasons why some may not like it.  If you like strong, floral-oriental-musky scents then this will be perfect for you, its definitely not a perfume for those who like something light and fresh.  Its a long, lingering scent that lasts on the skin all day.

At around £30, the purse spray isn't the cheapest of perfumes, particularly for only 25ml of fragrance but its an indulgent treat that will last ages.  Since it is a parfum as opposed to a toilette, it is much more concentrated and therefore stronger, so you will use less and it will still last much longer on your skin.  It such a high quality fragrance, it is well worth the money; it even smells luxurious and expensive.  The packaging is gorgeous too, it screams femininity.

I was given the perfume as a gift for graduating last year and I instantly loved it but after a week or so in my handbag I had lost the little silver spray bit from the top of the bottle and it has remained on my dressing table ever since, rendered useless.  That's where the Travalo comes in...

Travalo- The 8cm Refillable Fragrance Spray £6.99-£10 
A Travalo is a refillable perfume bottle that is perfect for travelling or for carrying around in your handbag.  The Travalo itself is really lightweight, fills up in seconds using a pumping action as shown in the photo above, and you get around 50 sprays from one full bullet.  I bought mine from Play.com as a way to still use the Agent Provocateur perfume (I'd tried everything to get the perfume out, even replacing the little silver spray thing... but it was messy and didn't work).  They had a special offer on at the time and the black bullet was only £5 so I figured it was worth spending the money rather than wasting the perfume... and I'm so pleased I did as I have fallen in love with this perfume all over again!  I think they usually retail at between £6.99 and £10 which isn't too pricey depending on how much you will use it.  The Travalo can really make perfume buying economical as it is usually much cheaper in the long run to buy large bottles and decant it into the small Travalo than to buy small bottles time and time again (cost per mls of fragrance).  Since the Travalo is aeroplane friendly, ill be taking this on holiday with me as well as keeping it in my handbag to freshen up throughout the day.

What perfume are you wearing at the moment?
