I’ve subscribed to several fashion magazines over the years and something I always find kind of hilarious- articles on perfume. I get perfume ads with samples, but an article telling me how good a perfume smells is kind of funny, right? And what am I doing today? Talking about perfume! :)
I’ve been pretty loyal to a few perfumes in my life – there were Lucky and Curve back in high school and college (when I wasn’t wearing Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon, of course), then I kind of settled into DKNY Be Delicious about ten years ago with the occasional Kate Spade Live Colorfully spritz mixed in. I’ve been looking for something new to rotate in and I’m so picky about scents it’s kind of hard to find something I want to commit to!
I like Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle and I really like their Chanel Chance Eau Vive but I’m still thinking I need to step outside the box a bit! A couple of years ago I bought my mom a fragrance sampler from Sephora and I think it might be helpful for myself, or anyone else wanting to try out a new scent before they fully commit!
Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler Sets
The Sephora Favorites Fragrance Sampler Set includes 15 samples of some of their most popular perfumes.

The Sephora Favorites sampler sets retail for $65, but don’t forget, they includes a full size fragrance of your choice!
Sephora Favorites Travel Fragrance Sampler
Another (more affordable) option? The Sephora Favorites Travel Fragrance Sampler ($25). The set includes samples of Atelier Cologne Bergamote Soleil Cologne Absolue, Chloe Eau de Parfum, Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue, Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black, Marc Jacobs Mod, Prada Candy, and Yves Saint Laurent Black opium. Pick your favorite and then you can redeem an included scent certificate for a rollerball or travel spray.
