Perfume Perfection

I LOVE perfume. It can single-handedly transform you into a sassy confident woman with one spritz. I won’t lecture readers with over-spraying, other than to say, too much is a HUGE turnoff and turns sassy and confident into desperate and cheap. So don’t.

Choosing the right perfume is all about chemistry. Literally.  Different perfumes smell different on everyone.  Did you know that? Chemicals react with your unique body and can emit a different scent, depending on how it mixes.  That’s why trial and error is crucial.  Besides the fact that I have a picky fiance (his nose only likes certain scents, and everything else “stinks”–STINKS? Or it’s not your favorite?…whatever), I wanted to research which perfumes to invest in.

The best perfumes, not body splash, cost money. And I won’t be wasting $50-$75 on something I’m not 100% positive will work with my chemistry.

For Christmas I got the Sephora favorites deluxe fragrance sampler.  Tiny samples of tons of different scents to play with. In addition to the sampler, you can select a larger sample of your favorite for some more trial time and then be SURE you’re investing the right way. Best. Deal. EVER!

Sephora Favorites Deluxe Fragrance Sampler $50

Wanna know my faves?  I like girly, light, floral, slightly musky, but still fresh and light scents. Got that? Ha, probably not. So here’s the breakdown…


Versace Bright Crystal

Sephora’s Product Description:

Bright Crystal
Inspired by a mixture of Donatella Versace’s favorite floral fragrances, Bright Crystal is a fresh, sensual blend of refreshing chilled yuzu and pomegranate mingled with soothing blossoms of peony, magnolia, and lotus flower, warmed with notes of musk and amber.
Iced Accord, Yuzu, Pomegranate, Peony, Magnolia, Lotus Flower, Acajou, Vegetal Amber, Musk.
Sheer. Sensual. Luminous.


Juicy Couture Couture Couture

Sephora’s Product Description:

Couture Couture
Introducing Juicy Couture’s ‘it girl’ fragrance. Where she goes, the party follows. Her rule? Do the don’ts—show off, be loud, spoil yourself, talk to strangers—and love life! This scent opens with a top of succulent pink grape accord frolicking in a field of natural orange flower and mandarin. A heart of blushed plum and honeysuckle flirts with bold star jasmine. At back, creamy sandalwood lazes with moist amber in a haze of rich vanilla. Mix it with love and make the world smell good.



Pucci Miss Pucci

Sephora’s Product Description:

Miss Pucci

Youthful, fresh, and seductive, miss Pucci is undeniably modern while opening a window to the retro Pucci lifestyle of vibrant color, perpetual motion, and sun-soaked destinations. This sparkling musky floral comes alive with the elegance of magnolia and the lightness of Sicilian winter lemon, playfully blossoming to heart notes of Turkish rose and seductive Comoros ylang-ylang. Its base lingers on woody Texas cedar, powdered iris from Florence, and the delicate sensuality of white musk.The bottle, created by Parisian designer Ora Ito, uses kaleidoscopic ribbons of color to playfully tie together feelings of freedom, sophistication, and beautiful style that belong to the quintessential “Pucci girl.”
Sicilian Lemon, Turkish Rose, Comoros Ylang-Ylang, Tunisian Orange Blossom, Arabian Jasmine, Texas Cedar, Florentine Iris, Musk.
Chic. Feminine. Energetic.

    Sarah-I did the Sephora perfume sampler for my mom two Christmases ago and she loved it. This perfume is by-far my favorite! Just thought I’d share….

    Love this, I’m always trying new ones then don’t love them after wearing a few times. It will be nice to have samples to try for awhile and make sure I like it. Added bonus perfect size for travel. Thanks for sharing!
