Itty bitty summer perfumes

I love a beautiful perfume. And I love smelling nice. But when you’re running all over the place (literally) sometimes smelly as pretty can be a challenge. Enter Tom Ford‘s White Patchouli Atomizer with his beautiful scent in a travel size. The set contains a stunning gold case (ala James Bond) that will protect your coveted scent and will fit nicely into your purse. The scent, that meshes woody notes with white flowers and a patchouli core, is also impressive and is a great addition to anyone’s scent wardrobe. (I’m a sucker for the same old scents so this one is definitely a spicier add-on to my fragrance repertoire.) So whether you’re jetting off on a plane to Europe, packing up the car for a weekend getaway, or even just running errands these mini-perfumes are perfect. And a little bit decadent to boot at $185. (The set includes an eau de parfum atomizer and two refills.) For another delightful treat, Chloé has a new parfum purse spray called Lisy, offered in a limited-edition blush leather case. It’s so beautiful I actually gasped when I opened it and can’t stop raving about it (also because I love the perfume). Coined a “floriental variation” of their successful eau de parfum, this scent has pink peppercorns, sandalwood and tonka bean along with the distinctive rose scent. The 15 ml parfum purse spray & leather case retail for $140. These perfumes and cases are so gorgeous it seems almost a shame to keep them in your bag. Just for fun, take them out and spritz them in front of friends. Both are available in stores now at Holt Renfrew. –Kate Daley
