Perfumes on the plane: how many to take, how much to take and how to take them with you
If you have recently travelled or are planning a getaway in the next few weeks, these questions may have crossed your mind more than once: can I take my perfume with me, am I allowed to take perfume in my hand luggage or do I have to take it in my checked baggage, how do I carry my perfumes in my luggage, how do I carry my perfumes in my luggage?
The truth is that there is a whole set of regulations surrounding this issue that you should take into account before preparing your luggage. But if you're still not sure, don't worry, in this post we'll answer all your questions so that your next getaway won't be without your favourite fragrance. ;)
Is it possible to take perfumes on the plane?
This is undoubtedly the big question for many fragrance lovers: can I take my favourite perfume with me on a plane? What happens if I don't check in my luggage?
The answer is yes, you are allowed to take perfumes into the aircraft cabin and carry them with you in your hand luggage. But be careful; there are a whole set of limitations from a regulatory point of view that you will have to comply with if you don't want your perfumes to stay on the ground.
How many ml of perfume can I take on a plane?
The maximum amount of liquid that can be carried on board an aircraft in hand luggage must not exceed 100 ml per item. In other words, you can carry more than one item in different containers, but each of these containers must have a maximum capacity of 100 ml separately.
Another point to bear in mind is that some airports, such as AENA, only allow a maximum of 1 litre of liquids in total in hand luggage. In other words, the individual containers must be a maximum of 100 ml and in total, they must not exceed 1 litre all together.
If you want to exceed this amount, please note that there are no restrictions on liquids in checked baggage.
Another option is to buy the products you need and which exceed the maximum quantity allowed after passing through the security checkpoint, inside the airport itself.
Can I wear more than one perfume?
If you are one of those scent connoisseurs who love to have one perfume for the day and another for the night, you should know that yes, you are allowed to carry more than one perfume in your hand luggage.
Please note, however, that you must still comply with current regulations regarding liquids: containers of no more than 100 ml and a maximum of 1 litre of liquids in total.
Fortunately, most perfume formats on the market are between 50 ml and 100 ml, so you will probably have no problem carrying your favourite perfume with you.
Another option, which not only saves space but can also be a much more practical alternative, is to buy perfumes in 'travel' format or reusable containers that you can refill with your favourite fragrance.
How should I wear perfumes?
To take your perfumes into the aircraft cabin, you must place them in transparent zip bags of a standard size of 20x20cm along with the rest of the liquids you carry in your luggage: sprays, toothpaste, make-up, creams, etc.
When it is time to put your hand luggage through the X-ray machine, you should remove the transparent bag and place it in plain view on a separate tray to facilitate its inspection.
Don't worry if you don't have these bags at home: almost all airports offer clear bags in the standard sizes at the security checkpoint.
Where to buy perfumes to take on a trip?
Without a doubt, travel-friendly perfumes are the best option to take your fragrance with you when you have to catch a flight.
They are specially designed to take up less space, weigh less (making it easier for you to comply with luggage weight limitations) and are more practical to carry from one place to another.
