Here’s How Much Cologne You Can Take on a Plane During Your Trip


No holiday or business trip is complete without shopping for cologne. You might try some new fragrances or get some as a gift for your loved ones. But how much cologne can you take on a plane? Keep reading this article to find out. 

As some perfume brands are only available in certain countries, you may be tempted to carry a few extra bottles of your favorite cologne while returning home. As some popular brands may not be available in India, you can carry travel-size perfume for airplanes when flying from the USA.

Know about how much cologne you can take on a plane according to the TSA rules and learn special tricks to carry your favorite fragrance without a hassle.

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Rules for Colognes or Other Liquids

As per TSA’s 3-1-1 rule, all carry-on liquids, including gels, lotions, and aerosols, must not exceed 3.4 ounces (100 ml). If you keep fluids in receptacles more than that, you must put them in your checked-in baggage in case they are medically essential.

Cologne has no packing requirements in checked luggage, but because they are classified as unsafe items, the quantity of each bottle should not exceed 17 ounces (500 ml). However, almost all fragrance bottles do not cross this limit and hence it won’t be an issue. In fact, all fluid and aerosol medication, nasal sprays, massaging liquor, sanitizer, and nail polish are subject to this regulation. Similarly, the fragrance bottle’s release mechanism must be covered by a lid to avoid leakages. Also, you are only allowed to carry 68 ounces (2 liters) of total liquid products in your luggage. 

Packing Tips for Cologne to Evade Spills

  • Make sure the fragrance bottle has a lid over the sprinkle nozzle.
  • Put it in a Ziploc pack and scrounge out as much air as possible before packing it tightly.
  • To detour breaking the bottle, cover your toiletry pouch in soft clothes, particularly if it’s sealed in checked luggage, and bring travel-size perfume for an airplane.
  • Avoid packing the cologne bottle near the corners or beside any hard objects.

Now you know how much cologne you can take on a plane. Taking cologne or perfume through airport security and onto a plane is a simple process. As long as you follow the TSA  rules for carrying fluids, you’ll have no problem getting through security.
