Battle of the Bulging Bag – Attempting to cram all your beauty essentials in to a tiny clutch bag for a day at the races can be challenging. It needs planning and tough decisions on what to leave behind.

Usually it is the perfume that doesn’t make it due to being too bulky. Even for large bags, the perfume bottle can be too heavy. It’s time to think small! Think roller ball or atomiser– these won’t ruin the silhouette of your bag.

Here is a selection of fragrances which offer rollerballs:

Dior Roller Pearl

If your favourite perfume is from the Dior fragrance house then you will ‘absolutely blooming’ ‘adore’ their new Roller Pearl.

A small 20ml glass bottle topped with a pearl like glass bead for smooth easy application delivering just the right amount of fragrance with no waste. The bottle is hermetically sealed with a screw on cap.  The fragrance formulated in a silky smooth texture.
