I love decorating my vanity table with fancy perfume bottles more than the next chick, but those full-sized fragrances aren't exactly practical for a busy woman like me who's always on the go.

I'm obsessed with Miss Dior Eau De Parfum Purse Spray ($100). The floral scent is sweet and sensual and the refillable spray bottle is super convenient.


Chloe 3

What's better than a Chloe fragrance? The Chloe Mini Travel Gift Set ($15). The scents are fresh, smooth and--I have to admit--kind of addictive!

Sea Sprite Perfume Oil ($9) hydrates your skin as much as it makes you smell good. Think of it as the best of both worlds.
