If you’ve ever had a lot of hours to kill, you’ll remember the smell of ‘all the perfumes’

For many of us, the time spent at an airport is usually restricted to a few hours at most, as we wait for a long haul flight after check in. But for others who choose or need to change planes, it can mean a layover – where you are in one destination for many hours.
If you have ever had a long layover, these are the stages you’ll know all too well…
1. Duty free shopping
Sooner or later, you will succumb. Before you do, you try one perfume, then another… eventually, over the course of 10 hours, you smell more Moulin-Rouge-the-morning-after than eternal youth.
7. Wishing you’d brought a better travel pillow
And then buying one and falling asleep on a chair that is akin to a concrete torture instrument. How much was that lounge again?
