I think its fair to say that nobody really wants to lug a full-size bottle of fragrance round with them all day to do a couple of refresher spritzes along the way. A full perfume bottle weighs a ton and my handbag for sure is full of all kinds of crap that doesn’t need adding to. So, while I’ve been browsing around the American department store websites (a really bad habit, I know), one thing has become apparent. American women aren’t expected to add to the carry around weight. I’ve spotted so many roller ball fragrances – see below – that with very few exceptions aren’t available in the UK. I know that Trish McEvoy does roller ball sizes in the UK – altogether much more tote-friendly and also of course, much more purse friendly. Buying a fragrance is quite a big financial commitment, and if you’re anything like me, you like to try lots of different scents without shelling out a fortune.  I’d be a whole lot happier if scents came in smaller sizes so it was easier to flit between scents without feeling beholden to finish that mahoosive 100ml you paid a small fortune for.
