While an a.m. spritz of your signature scent can’t be fully replaced for some, different delivery systems—think solids, brush-ons, towelettes, powders and gels—of your favorite perfumes are becoming more and more popular, making it easy for those who aren’t keen on traditional sprays. This new wave of fragrance boasts easy-to-stow forms and smaller price tags, which can save you a large chunk of change if you’re not willing to commit to steeply priced bottle of perfume you can’t really travel with. Here, 10 options that will win you over.

This superfine powder has a hint of shine and boasts the sweet, addictive scent
of Viktor & Rolf’s Bonbon, a fragrance packed with notes of zesty
peach and sweet caramel.
Unlike traditional solids, this fragrance is held in a potent, quick-drying gel that’s released after pumping the bottom of the “paint brush.” Apply it over your skin wherever you want the scent to land and it will last for hours.
Available in Black (a woody scent with notes of violet, sandalwood and vanilla) and White (floral musk), these stunning compacts feature the same vibe and textured packaging as the original eau de parfum bottles, but in an easy-to-tote, versatile compact.
Byredo Kabuki Perfume ($65)
Available in three classic Byredo scents—Gypsy Water, Blanche and Bal d’Afrique—these sleek black tubes house a fluffy brush to sweep your favorite scent onto the body instead of spritzing it. Press the bottom of the retractable brush until a lightweight, weight powder surfaces at the top of the brush (one click is enough to deposit the perfect amount of microfine powder onto the skin). Then, dust onto the hollows of your neck, wrists or over your entire body.
Twenty individually wrapped wipes are pre-measured and infused with a different fragrance (five are featured in this set) to make traveling with your favorite scents easier—and cleaner—than ever.
In Fiore Paffum Solide ($85)
The only thing more stylish than the compact the fragrance is held in is the rich, long-lasting scent that’s crafted with a blend of pure oils, herbs and floral absolutes.
If traditional spray-on fragrance irritates your skin but you still want to be enveloped in a scent (namely a luxurious bergamot-, pink pepper- and coconut milk- infused option), try this body oil that goes on like silk and dries quickly to reveal sexy, smooth skin.
One dab of this luxe, global-inspired scent will leave you smelling like a blend of Moroccan orange blossom, tuberose, amberwood and white musk—all in a solid container that’s perfect for keeping in your gym bag.
An official date-night clutch staple, this chic gold compact houses a mirror for touch-ups and a sweet solid fragrance to keep you smelling fresh when you need it most.
