Finding Your Scent

We've said it before - scent is such a personal preference, and it's so true! While there are definitely 'cult favorite' perfumes, and we have our favorites...the truth is everyone smells things differently (it's true!), so while you may love a particular perfume, your BFF could hate the smell! Buying perfume as a gift is a great idea, but can be tricky! We've both been hunting for a new perfume & put it on our Christmas list, but we're definitely not leaving the decision up to our guys ;). We're always the girls in store trying 50 perfumes on those little test strips and eventually feeling sick (lol), and forgetting which one was which...anyone else?! This year, Sephora came up with the most genius idea ever - try before you buy! Yes please! 
I got the Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler - this kit has 15 samples for you to try, then you can turn in the included voucher to redeem a full size bottle! Is that not the most genius idea ever?! I love it! I think it's hard to smell 15 scents and choose one right away, so I've been sampling a new perfume each day by actually wearing it, and seeing how I like it throughout the day. My favorite so far is the one from NEST - 'Indigo.' 


I've always been a Chloe girl when it comes to perfume but I found a few others that I'm loving from the travel sampler. The YSL Black Opium smells so yummy along with Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue.
Having a scent testing party over here ;)
Kyle asked for new cologne for Christmas but honestly I don't want to pick a scent for him - I feel like it's such a personal choice! I'm putting this cologne sampler in his stocking (comes in a leather travel bag!) so he can pick out which one he loves the most!

  4. That's so perfect for me-- I get headaches from some perfumes after a while but I can't tell in the store which will be okay and what will make me sick. I always go into the store with the intention of buying but can't decide and feel like I need to try them for a full day. I am obsessed with black opium right now!!!

  8. This is such a fantastic idea! I'm all for trying out products before buying them, and I'm especially picky when it comes to perfumes, because so many of them give me a headache. Now I know how to find my perfect scent! And the fact that they have an option for guys is great too! Thanks for sharing your experience!

  15. This is such a fabulous idea! After trying two or more scents in the store, they all begin to smell the same, so to try them out at home, one at at time, is so smart!

  16. "Try before you buy" that seems like a great idea. I am a huge fan of sauvage Dior and it was started with a sampler. Thanks for sharing the idea.
