Dec 6th is Mr. J and I 6 month mark of our Anniversary.  Mr. J being the romantic he is always gets me something on the 6th which was this amazing Sephora Perfume Sampler! Click down below to see what I thought of this Sampler set and which perfume I picked! 

This sampler set is something I live for! I love the fact I can try out 14 different perfumes to find me the perfect fit! When you find your perfect fit you exchange the certificate it comes with for a full size version!!! I love that I tried a new perfume each night before I went to bed. If I liked it I wore it the next day to see how the perfume fares throughout the day.

- 0.05 oz Tom Ford Black Orchid spray (Certificate redeems for 1.0 fl oz Eau de Parfum Spray) 
- 0.03 oz Versace Bright Crystal spray (Certificate redeems for 1.0 fl oz Eau de Toilette Spray)

My Favorites of this set are:
  • Chloé  by Chloé - a floral rose scent reminded me of D&G Rose the One
  •  Gucci Flora By Gucci - a floral rose scent reminded me of D&G Rose the One
  •  Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy (Which I already own) - a sweet, fruity vanilla scent
  • Lancôme La Vie Est Belle - a warm floral and a hint of musk
  • Prada Candy - a warm caramel scent
  • Versace Bright Crystal (which I already own) - a beautiful and sweet floral scent
With this many favorites it was so hard to pick which one I wanted to take home! I decided I wasn't gong to pick up something I own already so that took Bright Crystal and Viva La Juicy off my list. 

I decided against  Chloé and Gucci Flora because it smells too much like D&G Rose the One. These two scents were also heavy florals that are perfect for night, but not for everyday wear. Much too heavy. 

La Vie Est Belle was also a floral. I own 3 floral perfumes already, so I decided I didn't need another one.

After that process left me with Candy by Prada. I love this scent it's a perfect everyday perfume in my opinion, also great for nights! I don't really like to overpower people with my perfume choices. You only really smell this perfume on me when you are close which is what I want. 

Candy by Prada for the 1 oz sells for about $66 but with this sampler set Mr. J only paid $60! Which is a $6 savings! Whew! 

Since I talked about my favorite perfumes I must talk about the ones I didn't like. I'm only going to talk about a few that really jumped at me. 

Daisy by Marc Jacobs smells terrible in my book. It does not smell anything close to strawberries. I know this is a huge fan favorite but it gives me a headache! 

Speaking of a fan favorite Alien by Thierry Mugler  is another odd one for my nose. It smells like peppery laundry! I'm a 'clean' and 'fresh' scent hater. I CAN NOT stand those scents! They give me such headaches. I actually had to wash it off right away

Blach Orchid by Tom Ford  smells like a heavy floral. I can't pick out any notes but it just is a mixed floral scent that really bothered me as well. 

. I'm not sure how anyone wears some of these perfumes. But I have to remember people wonder the same thing about my favorite perfumes so it's all different for each sniffer! I'm a light floral and caramel scent lover while others are a fresh and clean scent lover! Everyone is different. 

What do you guys think of this sampler? Which one would you have picked! You can purchase this set from Sephora here.
