How Many Perfumes Can I Take On a Plane?

Traveling with perfumes isn’t easy, especially when you have more of them. On one hand, you want to keep expensive perfumes close to you in the carry-on. But on the other hand, you can’t take too many perfumes with you as you have to store them in checked luggage.

So what’s the real number? How many perfumes can you safely travel with?

It turns out some airports have a limit to the number of perfumes transported in checked-in luggage, but most don’t.

How many perfumes can I take in a carry-on?

Carry-on perfumes need to fit inside a quart-size clear zipped plastic bag under the 3-1-1 TSA rule on carrying perfume on an airplane.

You can carry up to 4 perfumes of 100ml (3.4oz) in checked-in luggage. You might be able to carry more 50ml perfumes in checked-in luggage depending on how many you fit in a quart-size zipped bag.

How many perfumes can I take in checked-in luggage?

Checked-in luggage is a bit less restrictive to the number of perfumes you can travel with. Some people carry up to 50 perfumes in checked-in luggage.

The maximum number of perfumes you can carry in checked-in luggage depends on the maximum weight allowed by the airline. This means you need to weigh your checked-in luggage so that it doesn’t weigh more than the maximum allowed weight for travel. Otherwise, you’ll need to discard perfumes or pay extra for each pound of weight you carry.
