Can you bring Perfume with you on a plane?

Going on vacation to Florida and wanted to know if I can pack a bottle of perfume. Thanks-Magpie

Sure...you can pack it in your checked luggage or carry on 3 oz or less.

Florida sure does sound nice. It was 14 below zero here this morning. Have fun!

A tongue has no bones, yet it is strong enough to break a heart. Be careful with your words.

One thing to keep in mind. If the bottle says 3.4 ounces (typical size), and it's clear that there's only an ounce, they still won't allow it on the plane.

Just part of the idiocy of the TSA.

Yeah, FINALLY!!!!! Run Trey, run!

Yep--as Tabbychic says, you can either pack it in your checked bag or carry on if less than the specified ounces.

I just would advise that if you pack it in a checked bag, I would double-ziploc-bag it. I also would hesitate to pack a bottle that was full to the top, in case the contents expand (the way frozen liquid expands). I know the alcohol in perfume would probably prevent it freezing, and it's not the same thing as liquid foundation, of course; but I had a bottle of liquid foundation packed in my checked bag for a trip to London, and the foundation must have expanded or something during the long flight in the non-pressurized luggage area. I had the worst mess in my makeup bag upon arriving in London. It leaked, even though it had a screw-on top. Imagine thick liquid foundation basically poured into the contents of your makeup bag. I had to spend waaaay too much precious London time getting everything cleaned off from that little mess! It might've been smarter to toss it all and buy new makeup there, but I must've had "travel brain" and didn't think of that!

At any rate, in case your perfume bottle leaked, you might not want that saturated throughout all your packed clothing....or maybe you would(?). {#emotions_dlg.laugh} When in doubt, I always double-bag now!

Edited to add: The foundation mess wasn't just my makeup, now that I think about it. I had other toiletry bottles in that bag, too....shampoo, razor, headband (to keep my hair back when I was my face at night), fingernail clippers (no, I can't leave home without them....nothing drives me crazy like a snagged nail, LOL), etc., etc. Ugh....I just remember it was a horrible mess. {#emotions_dlg.crying}

Ohhhh, this is very true! It's a good point and worth keeping in mind.

JUST ONE SUGGESTION:

PLEASE , out of consideration for your fellow travelers, don't wear perfume on the plane. In a closed environment like a plane cabin, it can be irritating to others who may have allergies.

Thank you.

I'm going on a trip soon and I went to perfume.com and ordered a sample set of Dior scents for $20.00.

I usually put mine in the checked luggage. Always in a ziplock. Air pressure can make them leak.

Amen! I never, ever wear scented lotion, cologne, perfume, etc. when flying.
