Words: Lauren Quinn
The perfume world is evolving more than ever before. Yep, you better believe your eyes when you see these perfume pens. Our verdict? OBSESSED. Here’s the lowdown…
THEY MAKE LIFE EASIER = FACT
Call us lazy, but sometimes spritzing your fave pomegranate and jasmine scent (oh hi, Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom) can be a tad difficult – especially when you’re juggling it with that conference call and trying to keep up with your 43,586 WhatsApp group chat messages at the same time. Cue perfume pens, an innovation in fragrance, which are uber-helpful when you’re travelling and on the go. You simply paint the scent onto your wrists and neck. They’re small enough to keep in your day bag or makeup bag, so you really can’t go wrong.
THEY SMELL EXACTLY THE SAME AS YOUR FAVE SCENT
Not kidding. Perfume pens carry exactly the same scent as your favourite fragrance in a bottle. And whether you use it alone or top up with your favourite scent, you’ll smell UNBELIEVABLE.
THESE ARE THE PERFUME PENS YOU NEED RN
Just launched, Mugler perfume pens are the talk of the town. Do the notes of caramel and exotic fruits in Angel, and the jasmine and white amber in Alien tickle your fancy? Rhubarb leaves and orange blossom in Aura your idea of heaven? These three Mugler solid pens should totally be on your hot list. Their retractable wax is ideal for quick touch-ups as it melts on your skin immediately, so no excessive rubbing needed. Whoop!
For you YSL fans, Black Opium Click & Go is going to be your BFFE. Simply click the end of the pen and sweep the gel (smells of coffee and vanilla) onto your pressure points. And, OMG, you’ll be mesmerised by the glitter design. The best part? Black Opium Click & Go is exclusive to The Perfume Shop from 1 August, so you won’t find it anywhere else.
