Perfume, cologne and even scented candles are such a personal choice. Fragrances might smell different when they react with your skin versus someone else’s, and something that smells good to your friend might smell bad to you. That’s why I personally find it so difficult to buy perfume online. I’ve watched countless TikToks showing off the best scents, but without actually smelling it first, I have a hard time investing in one.
A lot of perfumes are also expensive! And that’s why Sephora’s latest perfume sampler is such a good buy. The sampler includes 0.4–0.6-ounce samples of 16 popular scents and a certificate to purchase one full-sized product. Essentially, sniff and wear the 16 perfumes, then choose a favorite and take the included scent certificate to any U.S. Sephora store or Sephora.com to redeem for a full-size bottle of your favorite featured fragrance — at no extra cost.
The sampler costs $85, so it’s not exactly cheap. But a lot of the perfumes on the list cost well over that.
For reference, here are all the fragrances included in the sampler:
BURBERRY Her Elixir Eau de Parfum
Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum
Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue Eau de Toilette
Gucci Flora Gorgeous Jasmine
Juliette Has a Gun Lust For Sun
Maison Margiela ‘REPLICA’ By The Fireplace Eau de Toilette
Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Ever So Fresh Eau de Parfum
NEST New York Golden Nectar Eau de Parfum
PHLUR Missing Person Eau de Parfum
Prada Paradoxe Eau de Parfum
The 7 Virtues Vanilla Woods Eau de Parfum
TOM FORD Ombre Leather Eau de Parfum
Valentino Born In Roma Eau de Parfum
Versace Bright Crystal Absolu Eau de Parfum
Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Le Parfum
Carolina Herrera’s Good Girl, BURBERRY’s Her, PHLUR’s Missing Person, Valentino’s Born In Roma and pretty much anything from Maison Margiela have tons of fans on TikTok. Now, you can smell what the people are talking about for less.
It’s also nice to spray one of the perfumes on, wear it for the day, and then decide if you like it. A scent might change or not last as long as you want, and then, on to the next one. Additionally, if you’re shopping for a birthday present for a scent-loving friend, this sampler is a great gift idea. Let your friend choose their new signature scent themselves.
Keep in mind the Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler Set is new and a limited edition, meaning it won’t be around forever. Snag it now on Sephora’s website before it’s gone.
