Searching for a new perfume goes something like this: Spritz one scent that’s a headache-inducing floral, spritz another spicy blend that lingers for barely five minutes, spritz a third and you’ve completely lost your sense of smell.
Sephora must have noticed the groups of women frozen in a haze of perfume spray, because they’ve put together their very first fragrance sampler.
For $50 you get ten supersize samples of the beauty giant’s top-selling scents (Think Calvin Klein Euphoria, Marc Jacobs Daisy, and Stella McCartney Stella). Bring them home, try them out on your own time, and, once you’ve figured out exactly which one you want for the long haul, stop by Sephora to trade in a voucher for your fragrance of choice. You’ll save money, time, and, yes, a bit of sanity as you search for that signature smell.
Finally, a way to get some sense—and scents—knocked into you.
