The summer is finally here, which means that travel season is upon us. As you jet off to your warm, sunny destination of choice – and escape grey and rainy England – one beauty necessity is a summer fragrance.

A travel-size perfume is the holiday essential that will keep you fresh in the heat but won’t take up that much-needed room in your suitcase. Here are some of our favourite mini perfumes to help you choose the perfect travel fragrance for those hand-luggage-only holidays.

1. Gucci Bamboo Eau De Parfum Spray

Our first pick is a luxurious summer fragrance, available in 30ml or 50ml. Gucci’s Bamboo is soft but intense, with sandalwood, Tahitian vanilla and amber fragrances contrasting exotic notes of feminine orange blossom, ylang ylang and Casablanca lily. The addition of floral notes makes this delightful perfume a perfect scent for the summer.

2. Dior Miss Dior Eau De Parfum Spray

Dior’s Miss Dior perfume is a classic fragrance, and wonderfully light, making it excellent for the summer. The signature Dior fragrance has refreshing floral tones – including touches of Grasse rose and lily of the valley – along with sparkling top notes of blood orange and mandarin. This fresh, bright, and delicate perfume is a great choice for your holiday perfume and comes in travel-ready sizes of 30ml and 50ml.

3. Prada Candy Sugar Pop Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml

Our next pick is a divine oriental fragrance from Prada. This fun and flirty fragarance is awash with fruity and floral tones, with citrus and white peach accords over a smooth vanilla base. This sophisticated, small perfume bottle is perfect for travelling and promises to be as bold as your holiday adventures.

4. Vera Wang Princess Eau de Toilette Spray

Another of our favourite summer picks is this Vera Wang travel size perfume, avaliable in 30ml or 50ml. This rich, fruity aroma combines fresh mandarin, apricot, and apple top notes over a deep base of amber, vanilla and woody tones. Its soft, earthy quality brings a harmonious nature to Vera Wang’s Princess fragrance and as such is a calm and refreshing addition to any summer beauty routine.

5. Ghost Eau de Toilette Spray

The Ghost collection is one of the most popular fragrance collections, and the fresh, feminine bouquet of this perfume explains why. Hibiscus, rose petal, and jasmine are delightfully blended with sandalwood and frankincense tones to create this full but subtle scent, making for an ideal summery scent. Ghost Eau de Toilette is available in 30ml and 50ml.
