Daylight savings time has come which officially means
you tired boss the days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer. Which further means we gotta be mindful of what we’re smelling like while we’re traipsing through these airports and getting on and off these aircraft. Y’all know how I feel about scents and don’t nobody want to sit next to you smelling like you helped Jesus carry the cross up to Calvary *Cues Calvary by Richard Smallwood and Victory*
In this post, I will be sharing the best fragrances to wear while traveling. These results are based on two factors, freshness and staying power. When you’re on a long haul flight, smelling clean for an extended period of time is essential.
Fellas, I didn’t forget about
Colonia Pura by Acqua Di Parma
This is one of my favorite colognes to travel in at the moment. I purchased it in a duty-free shop in Italy while looking for something fresh and new!
Colonia Pura opens with intense fresh notes of sunny bergamot, juicy orange, and delicate petit grain. It seduces with a heart sublimated by a harmonious combination of spicy notes of coriander, combined with the sensual floral accent of jasmine sambac absolute and narcissus absolute. Finally, it embraces with a refined duo of woody notes: cedarwood and patchouli, while white musk notes close the composition.
Colonia Pura is a luminous, fresh and transparent fragrance. It embodies the contemporary side of Italian lifestyle.
Chloe by Chloe
#classicThis one you’re probably familiar with if you’ve spent any amount of time exploring fragrances. It’s definitely an oldie but goodie!
Recently, while I was wearing this, someone told me, “You smell like you just took a bath!”
Bathing is essential.
Chloe begins with a combination of floral powdery notes, hints of peony, lychee and springtime freesia. The airy, flirtatious head notes drift away to reveal the richer and more sensational side of the rose. The distinctive character of this unique rose is accompanied by magnolia and lily of the valley, as well as subtle intimations of warm amber and elegant cedarwood.
Well, come on Lily of the valley, Joy!
Amazing Grace by Philosophy
Oh, how sweet the sound!
Amazing Grace is Philosophy’s best selling fragrance. It’s amazingly clean and beautifully feminine. The fragrance features notes of welcoming bergamot to greet the senses, irresistibly soft, clean muguet blossoms, and lasting musk with its classic beauty.
Love In White by CreedThis one gives all types of FLOUS vibes. (And by FLOUS, I mean Michelle Obama. Who else would I be referring to?) It has been reported that Michelle Obama’s signature fragrance is Love in White by Creed.
Whenever I’m walking through the airport wearing Love In White, I’m complimented on how “pretty” I smell.
Love in White is a floral oriental scent that features top notes of orange zest then blends into rice iris white jasmine magnolia daffodils and rose. The scent finishes off with sandalwood vanilla and ambergris.
I know, that sounds like a lot. But seriously, it’s Michelle approved.
Virgin Island Water by CreedThis is another favorite. It’s currently on my
Virgin Island Water opens with a citrusy cocktail of white bergamot, Jamaican lime, and Sicilian mandarin. The citruses are accompanied by a note of copra, the white inner flesh of a coconut. The heart includes intensive Indian jasmine, sweet hibiscus, exotic ylang-ylang, and cold, spicy ginger. The base of the composition includes sugar cane, musk, and white rum.
Talk about walking around smelling like the beach!
Alright, guys and gals, that’s all for now. But I’m interested to know, what are some of your favorite fragrances to travel in? Drop your recommendations below.
Thanks for reading, and as always, pray fervently and travel often!

Lia World Traveler says
Thank you for this post. I’ve actually been thinking it’s time for a new frangrance, these look like some promising options.
I have a whole hoard of fragrances, and I switch them up every season. When I travel I bring one that 1. Is diverse 2. Isn’t cloying 3. has good sillage
I have to check out some of the ones you listed to see if I should add them to my stash
Leslie H says
Interesting choices. For travel, I tend to prefer the fragrance of essential oil blends.
Mimi Green says
Chloe was my Mom’s favorite scent to wear. I recall seeing the bottle sit on her dresser. As a child that was the first scent I ever knew. I love that it made your list.
I think I would love to travel with Chloe. I like the other options you suggested as well!
I’ve heard that the Creed scent was a good one to try. Now that I’ve read this post I will certainly check it out.
All of the scents you mentioned are completely new to me. I like trying different perfumes so I will have to give them a try.

This reminds me that I probably haven’t worn any fragrances since our son was born. Which is way too long. He’s 9! I’m going to look through my old perfume bottles to see if they still have some staying power. If not, I’ll try these. I’ve never really had a signature scent!

Yes maam, get in there and see what those babies are working with. I was just looking through my collection and I’m getting a bit antsy for something new. Not that I need it, I just want something new. Sad, I know. LOL!
I pretty much wear the same fragrances that have become my signature scents but I don’t wear much for travel because I know how much I hate being closed in with folks wearing scents I don’t like.
I just make sure I have bathed & am wearing deodorant
Yes, you are right! There’s nothing like an overpowering fragrance that you don’t like. I’m biased though. I think all of my fragrances smell good, lol!
As long as you’re doing that, you should be good!
Nadalie Bardo says
Great tips for staying fragrant while traveling! I love having a tiny refillable bottle for perfumes while I’m on the go too.
Yes, refill bottles are the best! Chanel, Creed and Mugler are my favorite brands that refill!
I havent smelled any of these fragrances yet. Thanks for the brands especially while traveling!
You are welcome! I hope you find some that you enjoy!
I don’t travel much but I love a good fragrance. The Virgin Island water sounds like it smells divine!

It is simply divine indeed! That’s why I’m trying to get my hands on it! I’d even be willing to purchase it if I had a lil Boo to share it with. I just can’t justify getting it for myself seeing as how I have already purchased two Creed fragrances within the last year :-/
i need a new fragrance. i’ve been wearing the same one for 11 years. i love it, obviously. lol i just need to find a new scent to alternate with. i’m gonna check these out next time i go to sephora.
Yes, a couple of them they sell at Sephora. The Creed ones they do no, unfortunately.
Tiffany Mayfield says
I just recently purchased Tendre by Chanel. I have heard good things about it and cannot wait to try it. Hopefully I won’t be disappointed.
I’m for anything that Chanel offers. They have such an amazing staying power! I hope you enjoy it!
