I hope you all had an amazing Christmas if you celebrate it!
My gift to myself that I got as part of my Sephora VIB Haul was the Sephora Favorites – Fragrance Sampler for Her! I was looking for another perfume to add some variety to my collection, and this was the perfect way to try a bunch out!
The sampler is $65 and contains samples of 14 different perfumes as well as a clutch and a certificate to redeem for a full size of your favorite one, which is what makes this kit such an amazing deal.
I’ve listed the samples in alphabetical order below, along with the size you can redeem it for if you choose that scent, retail value of the redeemable size, and some information about each one from a booklet that comes in the sampler:
-Florabotanica by Balenciaga (Scent certificate is for 1.7 oz Eau de Parfum Spray-$100 retail value) Rose, hemp and vetiver – CHIC
– Chloé by Chloé (1.7 oz Eau de Parfum-$95) Peony, rose, amber, and honey – CHIC
-Happy by Clinique (1.7 oz Eau de Parfum-$48) Grapefruit, bergamot, mimosa – PLAYFUL
-Love by Coach (1.7 oz Eau de Parfum-$72) Mandarin, violet, freesia, jasmine, gardenia, musk, caramel. – CASUAL
-Light Blue by Dolce&Gabbana (1.6 oz Eau de Toilette-$69) Limes, apples. jasmine, bamboo, and white rose – CHIC
-Very Irrésistible by Givenchy (1.7 oz Eau de Toilette-$69) Roses, star anise, verbena leaf- CASUAL
-Guilty by Gucci (1.6 oz Eau de Toilette-$75) Mandarin, peach,lilac, amber, and patchouli – CHIC

-La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme (1.7 oz Eau de Parfum-$78) Iris, patchouli, orange blossom, and jasmine – ADDICTIVE
-Daisy by Marc Jacobs ( 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette-$70) Strawberry, violet, grapefruit -CASUAL
-For Her by Narciso Rodriguez (1.6 oz Eau de Toilette-$77) Floral, amber and woods – CHIC
-Florence by Tocca (1.7 oz Eau de Parfum) Bergamot, grapefruit, pear, gardenia, iris, woods, musk – CHIC
-Bright Crystal by Versace (1.7 oz Eau de Toilette) Lemon, pomegranate, peony, lotus, musk – PLAYFUL
I ended up deciding on Couture La La by Juicy Couture. The best part about this is being able to try each on for a day and walk around with it on so that you don’t have to make a rushed decision. That way, you can experience how each scent smells on you with your unique body chemistry and find the one you love most! All of the scents except Happy retail for over the price of the set itself, and even Happy isn’t a bad deal with all of the other items that you get! If you are torn between 2, I would suggest getting the more expensive one with the voucher and then buying the other option later!
The set retailed for $65 (I had a 20% off) and I got a perfume that was worth $70, as well as a bunch of samples and a clutch. Not shabby at all!
They are also now carrying another option at Sephora. This sampler has less fragrances to choose from, and it also redeems for smaller sizes of the full size product of your choice, but the trade off is a lower price tag.
Have you gotten a sampler? Which was your favorite?
