To put a perfume bottle in the luggage is a big risk. If the bottle is broken your good smelling perfume will turn into a stinking bomb. Even if you like the fragrance, your clothes and everything else will be ruined. It is quite difficult to get rid of the smell as well. The trip might end up more expensive than you planned.
Therefore it is good to plan ahead for taking perfumes with you on a trip. Here are some good advice for globetrotters.
- pick a small bottle that you can bring in your hand luggage instead of the checked
- package the bottle in a hard box
- choose a solid cologne, perfume in solid state
