Trend alert: mini bags and the perfumes that fit inside

By Lauren Carbran

It’s time to say bye bye to your big bag, ta-ra to your tote, and – well – just forget about that rucksack. SS17 is ALL about the mini bag. Teeny-weeny arm candy made countless appearances on the runways at Elie Saab and Valentino, and the high street has followed suit. Fancy giving the trend a go? Transferring to a mini bag can be tricky, but one thing we love about the challenge is that it gives us an excuse to buy a brand-new petite perfume. Here’s our edit of the best mini scents for your new buy (and they’re great for liquid travel restrictions, too)…stellamccartneypopStella McCartney POP, 30ml, for her

For packaging that’s as stylish as your bag, choose the latest fragrance from Stella McCartney. POP is cool-girl vibes bottled. Fans of classic feminine fragrances who want something with wow for summer will fall in love.

A sweet musk that’ll have everyone asking what you’re wearing, Prada Candy Kiss is your handbag go-to for summer dates and days out. A little goes a long way, too, so this mini bottle will last you ages.

Not only is this handbag sized, but it’s also handbag shaped! This quirky scent, in its super-cute bottle, deserves its place in the fragrance hall of fame.
