Since I can remember, I’ve worn the same few fragrances. Seriously! I have remained loyal to the same scents since high school. Sure, I have been given bottles of perfume as gifts from brands, friends and family, but I’ve never really taken the time to try something new. But recently, I’ve been feeling like it’s time for a change – maybe it’s the new season or perhaps it’s because my beauty regiment is evolving? Regardless, I’m eager to try a new scent. So how do I pick the best fall fragrance? Today, I’m partnering with Sephora to share some of the best tips and tricks to ensure you find the best fall fragrance!
My Journey with Fragrance
If you’re like me, I get seriously embarrassed by going to a fragrance counter and trying on different scents. Often, I feel pressured to buy something, and I want more time to actually test the product. I want to wear a perfume for a full 24-hours to make sure I like it. Does Bob like the smell? Does it give me a headache? Can I still smell it at the end of the day? The list goes on and on.
I’m so picky about perfumes that I even avoid Duty Free airport shops because I’m afraid of getting attacked by spritzes of fragrance by sales people!
Thankfully, Sephora has always been my ultimate destination for fragrance. First, it’s easy to shop online for exactly what I want, the in-store experience is comfortable (aka no one is pushy), the fragrance selection is flawless.
If you’re like me and struggle to pick a scent that’s right for you, I highly recommend trying out Sephora’s Perfume Sampler. It is the perfect solution for anyone who prefers to try fragrances in the comfort of their own homes.
How do you find the best fall fragrance?
First, start with the Sephora’s Perfume Sampler. The box includes eight of their most popular perfumes to pick from. Friends, I am obsessed with this concept! How has no one thought of this before?! Once you find your favorite, you bring the certificate inside the box to any Sephora store in the U.S. to get a full-size bottle. Genius!
The fragrance options in the box include:
- Clean Reserve Acqua Neroli Eau de Parfum Spray
- Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum Spray
- Nest Wisteria Blue Eau de Parfum
- Prada Candy Sugar Pop Eau de Parfum Spray (the most colorful bottle!)
- Tom Ford Eau de Soleil Blanc Eau de Toilette Spray
- Giorgio Armani Si Passione Eau de Parfum Spray
- Marc Jacobs Daisy Love Eau de Toilette Spray
- Versace Dylan Blue Pour Femme Eau de Parfum Spray
In the end, it’s an amazing deal. Take Tom Ford’s Eau de Soleil Blanc Eau de Toilette. Normally, a 1.7 ounce bottle is $125.00. With the Perfume Sampler, you only spend $65.00 and get a 1.5 ounce bottle. It’s an amazing cost savings! You can nearly get two bottles for one.
Sephora’s Fragrance Finder
To compliment the box, Sephora also has a Fragrance Finder online. The quiz is fun and interactive, and it helps you locate a scent that’s right for you or someone you love. Every question helps curate their recommendations.
My test revealed the top picks for me were Marc Jacobs Daisy Love and CHLOE’s Roses De Chloe. According to Sephora, CHLOE is more airy, subtle and feminine. It sounds like the perfect perfume to wear on a date night in Paris with Bob. Marc Jacobs Daisy Love, on the other hand, is elegant, sophisticated and classic. It sounds like a great year-round option. I’ll be checking these out these scents in the weeks to come!
